Four or five slender jointed digits in humans and primates, attached to each HAND.
Motifs in DNA- and RNA-binding proteins whose amino acids are folded into a single structural unit around a zinc atom. In the classic zinc finger, one zinc atom is bound to two cysteines and two histidines. In between the cysteines and histidines are 12 residues which form a DNA binding fingertip. By variations in the composition of the sequences in the fingertip and the number and spacing of tandem repeats of the motif, zinc fingers can form a large number of different sequence specific binding sites.
A zinc-binding domain defined by the sequence Cysteine-X2-Cysteine-X(9-39)-Cysteine-X(l-3)-His-X(2-3)-Cysteine-X2-Cysteine -X(4-48)-Cysteine-X2-Cysteine, where X is any amino acid. The RING finger motif binds two atoms of zinc, with each zinc atom ligated tetrahedrally by either four cysteines or three cysteines and a histidine. The motif also forms into a unitary structure with a central cross-brace region and is found in many proteins that are involved in protein-protein interactions. The acronym RING stands for Really Interesting New Gene.

Neuronal activity in somatosensory cortex of monkeys using a precision grip. III. Responses to altered friction perturbations. (2/2284)

The purpose of this investigation was to examine the activity changes in single units of the somatosensory cortex in response to lubricating and adhesive coatings applied to a hand-held object. Three monkeys were trained to grasp an object between the thumb and index fingers and to lift and hold it stationary within a narrow position window for 1 s before release. Grip forces normal to the skin surface, load forces tangential to the skin surface, and the displacement of the object were measured on each trial. Adhesive (rosin) and lubricant (petroleum jelly) coatings were applied to the smooth metal surface of the object to alter the friction against the skin. In addition, neuronal activity evoked by force pulse-perturbations generating shear forces and slip on the skin were compared with the patterns of activity elicited by grasping and lifting the coated surfaces. Following changes in surface coatings, both monkeys modulated the rate at which grip forces normal to the skin surface and load forces tangential to the skin surface were applied during the lifting phase of the task. As a result, the ratio of the rates of change of the two forces was proportionately scaled to the surface coating properties with the more slippery surfaces, having higher ratios. This precise control of normal and tangential forces enabled the monkeys to generate adequate grip forces and prevent slip of the object. From a total of 386 single neurons recorded in the hand area of the somatosensory cortex, 92 were tested with at least 1 coating. Cell discharge changed significantly with changes in surface coating in 62 (67%) of these cells. Of these coating-related cells, 51 were tested with both an adhesive and lubricating coating, and 45 showed significant differences in activity between the untreated metal surface and either the lubricant or the adhesive coating. These cells were divided into three main groups on the basis of their response patterns. In the first group (group A), the peak discharge increased significantly when the grasped surface was covered with lubricant. These cells appeared to be selectively sensitive to slip of the object on the skin. The second group (group B) was less activated by the adhesive surface compared with either the untreated metal or the lubricated surface, and they responded mainly to variations in the force normal to the skin surface. These cells provide useful feedback for the control of grip force. The third group (group C) responded to both slips and to changes in forces tangential to the skin. Most of these cells responded with a biphasic pattern reflecting the bidirectional changes in load force as the object was first accelerated and then decelerated. One hundred sixty-eight of the 386 isolated neurons were tested with brief perturbations during the task. Of these, 147 (88%) responded to the perturbation with a significant change in activity. In most of the cells, the response to the perturbation was shorter than 100 ms with a mean latency of 44.1 +/- 16.3 (SD) ms. For each of the cell groups, the activity patterns triggered by the perturbations were consistent with the activity patterns generated during the grasping and lifting of the coated object.  (+info)

Evidence for an eye-centered spherical representation of the visuomotor map. (3/2284)

During visually guided movement, visual coordinates of target location must be transformed into coordinates appropriate for movement. To investigate the representation of this visuomotor coordinate transformation, we examined changes in pointing behavior induced by a local visuomotor remapping. The visual feedback of finger position was limited to one location within the workspace, at which a discrepancy was introduced between the actual and visually perceived finger position. This remapping induced a change in pointing that extended over the entire workspace and was best captured by a spherical coordinate system centered near the eyes.  (+info)

Common 3 and 10 Hz oscillations modulate human eye and finger movements while they simultaneously track a visual target. (4/2284)

1. A 10 Hz range centrally originating oscillation has been found to modulate slow finger movements and anticipatory smooth eye movements. To determine if an interaction or linkage occurs between these two central oscillations during combined visuo-manual tracking, frequency and coherence analysis were performed on finger and eye movements while they simultaneously tracked a visual target moving in intermittently visible sinusoidal patterns. 2. Two different frequencies of common or linked oscillation were found. The first, at 2-3 Hz, was dependent on visual feedback of target and finger tracking positions. The second, at around 10 Hz, still occurred when both target and finger positions were largely obscured, indicating that this common oscillation was generated internally by the motor system independent of visual feedback. Both 3 and 10 Hz oscillation frequencies were also shared by the right and left fingers if subjects used these together to track a visual target. 3. The linking of the 10 Hz range oscillations between the eyes and finger was task specific; it never occurred when eye and finger movements were made simultaneously and independently, but only when they moved simultaneously and followed the target together. However, although specific for tracking by the eyes and fingers together, the linking behaviour did not appear to be a prerequisite for such tracking, since significant coherence in the 10 Hz range was only present in a proportion of trials where these combined movements were made. 4. The experiments show that common oscillations may modulate anatomically very distinct structures, indicating that single central oscillations may have a widespread distribution in the central nervous system. The task-specific manifestation of the common oscillation in the eye and finger suggests that such mechanisms may have a functional role in hand-eye co-ordination.  (+info)

Perfusion of the human finger during cold-induced vasodilatation. (5/2284)

We have investigated the effect of severe local cooling on the vasomotor activity of the arteriovenous anastomoses (AVAs) and other finger vessels. The right third finger was subjected to local cooling (3 degrees C) for 30-45 min in 21 healthy, thermoneutral subjects. Blood velocity in the third finger arteries of both hands was simultaneously recorded using ultrasound Doppler, and skin temperature and laser-Doppler flux from the pulp of the cooled finger were also recorded. The results demonstrate that the initial cold-induced vasoconstriction during severe local cooling involves constriction of the AVAs as well as the two main arteries supplying this finger. During cold-induced vasodilatation (CIVD), the maximum velocity values were not significantly different from those before cooling. Furthermore, the velocity fluctuations in the cooled finger were in most subjects found to be synchronous with the velocity fluctuations in the control finger. This indicates that the large blood flow to the finger and the high skin temperature during CIVD are caused by relaxation of the smooth muscle cells of the AVAs.  (+info)

The effects of posteroventral pallidotomy on the preparation and execution of voluntary hand and arm movements in Parkinson's disease. (6/2284)

We studied the effect of posteroventral pallidotomy on movement preparation and execution in 27 parkinsonian patients using various motor tasks. Patients were evaluated after overnight withdrawal of medication before and 3 months after unilateral pallidotomy. Surgery had no effect on initiation time in unwarned simple and choice reaction time tasks, whereas movement time measured during the same tasks was improved for the contralesional hand. Movement times also improved for isometric and isotonic ballistic movements. In contrast, repetitive, distal and fine movements measured in finger-tapping and pegboard tasks were not improved after pallidotomy. Preparatory processes were investigated using both behavioural and electrophysiological measures. A precued choice reaction time task suggested an enhancement of motor preparation for the contralesional hand. Similarly, movement-related cortical potentials showed an increase in the slope of the late component (NS2) when the patients performed joystick movements with the contralesional hand. However, no significant change was found for the early component (NS1) or when the patient moved the ipsilesional hand. The amplitude of the long-latency stretch reflex of the contralesional hand decreased after surgery. In summary, the data suggest that pallidotomy improved mainly the later stages of movement preparation and the execution of proximal movements with the contralesional limb. These results provide detailed quantitative data on the impact of posteroventral pallidotomy on previously described measures of upper limb akinesia in Parkinson's disease.  (+info)

Brief vibrotactile stimulation does not increase cortical oxygen consumption when measured by single inhalation of positron emitting oxygen. (7/2284)

Vibrotactile stimulation of the hand elicits no increase in oxygen consumption commensurate with the increase in blood flow measured in human sensory cortex. To test the hypothesis that previous failures to detect a proportionate increase in oxygen consumption could be an artefact of the sequential bolus, or three-step, method used to measure this parameter in the human brain in vivo, the authors compared the measurements with the results of a novel single bolus, or one-step, method of measuring oxygen consumption. The time of completion of the three-step method was 40 to 50 minutes, whereas the one-step method lasted only 3 minutes. The baseline whole-brain oxygen consumption averaged 185 +/- 32 micromol hg(-1) min(-1) by the three-step method and 153 +/- 15 micromol hg(-1) min(-1) by the one-step method. Vibrotactile stimulation did not elicit a significant increase in oxygen consumption measured by either method. This finding rejects the hypothesis that failure to detect an increase of oxygen consumption could be an artefact caused by limitations of the method used previously. Conversely, it also rejects the hypothesis that observations of an increase of oxygen consumption by the new method are artefacts caused by limitations of the one-step method.  (+info)

Oxygen consumption of cerebral cortex fails to increase during continued vibrotactile stimulation. (8/2284)

The coupling of oxidative metabolism to the blood flow of the sensory motor hand area is uncertain. The authors tested the hypothesis that continued vibrotactile stimulation ultimately must lead to increased oxygen consumption consumption. Twenty-two healthy right-handed young volunteers underwent positron emission tomography (PET) with the [(15)O]water bolus injection method to measure water clearance (K1H2O an index of blood flow (CBF), and with the [(15)O]oxygen bolus inhalation method to measure CMR(O2). The CMR(O2) was measured 30 seconds and 20 minutes after onset of intermittent (1 second on, 1 second off) vibrotactile stimulation (110 Hz) and compared with baseline measurements without stimulation. The K1H2O and CMR(O2) changes (delta K1H2O and delta CMR(O2)) were determined using intersubject averaging, together with magnetic resonance imaging based stereotaxic registration technique. The K1H2O increase was 21 +/- 4% and 12 +/- 4% at 30 seconds and 20 minutes after onset of stimulation, respectively. No significant increase of CMR(O2) was found until 30 minutes after the onset of stimulation. The authors conclude that blood flow and oxidative metabolism undergo uncoupling during sustained phasic stimulation of the sensory hand area. Therefore, neuronal activity stimulated in this manner does not rely on significantly increased oxidative phosphorylation.  (+info)

The forearm plus little finger length and the ipsilateral femoral length of 68 male and 32 female volunteers aged 19 to 55 (mean, 35.8) years were measured using a measuring tape. The forearm plus litter finger length was measured from the tip of the olecranon to the tip of the little finger, whereas the femoral length was measured from the tip of the greater trochanter to the level of proximal pole of the patella over the outer aspect of thigh. Two observers made the measurements on 2 separate occasions. Intra- and inter-observer variations were calculated. A value of 0.75 or greater indicated excellent agreement. RESULTS. The ...

Worcestershire CCC batsman Alex Gidman has undergone surgery and had a plastic joint fitted into his left index finger.. Gidman suffered a fractured finger during fielding practice ahead of the penultimate game of last season against Durham at the ICG Emirates.. It was expected to heal naturally without any operation required after two specialists had examined the x-rays.. But a later x-ray revealed a slight deformity and damage to the cartilage in the joint which left Gidman unable to flex the joint.. This reduction in range of movement would have prevented the 34-year-old from performing and so an intervention was needed.. Gidman saw renowned hand and wrist specialist Mike Hayton in Manchester and it was decided that the plastic joint represented the best option in his bid to return to full fitness.. Worcestershire CCC first team physiotherapist Ben Davies said: Alex injured his left index finger up at Durham. It was just as he was warming up for the game the day before. He dug his finger ...
In human anatomy, the extensor indicis [proprius] is a narrow, elongated skeletal muscle in the deep layer of the dorsal forearm, placed medial to, and parallel with, the extensor pollicis longus. Its tendon goes to the index finger, which it extends. It arises from the distal third of the dorsal part of the body of ulna and from the interosseous membrane. It runs through the fourth tendon compartment together with the extensor digitorum, from where it projects into the dorsal aponeurosis of the index finger. Opposite the head of the second metacarpal bone, it joins the ulnar side of the tendon of the extensor digitorum which belongs to the index finger. Like the extensor digiti minimi (i.e. the extensor of the little finger), the tendon of the extensor indicis runs and inserts on the ulnar side of the tendon of the common extensor digitorum. The extensor indicis lacks the juncturae tendinum interlinking the tendons of the extensor digitorum on the dorsal side of the hand. The extensor indicis ...

[online]. 2011, vol.10, n.4, pp.75-77. ISSN 2309-8309.. Introduction The flexor digitorum superficialis (FDS) is a flexor of the digits of the hand and has been reported to have varying rates of agenesis. We conducted a study to determine the prevalence of agenesis of the FDS in an East African population by clinical examination. Materials and methods A prospective study was conducted using three clinical tests among patients and students in a large teaching hospital in East Africa to determine the presence of the FDS in the fifth digit. Results The overall rate of absence was 2.5% with unilateral absence at 1.5% and bilateral absence at 1.0%. The over-all difference between males and females was not statistically significant (p=0.654). Discussion Our findings are in contrast to many studies worldwide. There is a paucity of studies ...

The extensor indicis (or extensor indicis muscle, latin: musculus extensor indicis) is a flat, small muscle of the forearm that belongs to the posterior muscle group, lying in the second or deep layer.
Digit ratio (2D:4D) denotes the relative length of the second and fourth digits. There are contradicting reports on its relationship with ethnicity/race, whereas convincing studies show it is related to obesity. This cross-sectional study was undertaken to demystify ethnic difference in 2D:4D ratio and to analyze its relationship with obesity among adults in Ilorin Nigeria. The cross-sectional study included 701 individuals. Finger lengths were measured with electronic calipers and other anthropometric traits were measured with standard procedure. Student t test and one-way ANOVA were used to detect differences among groups and relationship was computed with Pearson correlation. The receiver operator characteristic curves were used to detect the diagnostic effect of 2D:4D for obesity. The obtained results showed sexual dimorphism in 2D:4D ratio and other anthropometrics at p , 0.01. Obesity was associated with significantly higher mean of 2D:4D in both genders (female 0.9814 ± 0.012:0.9700 ± ...
The finger positioning-actually the way the yarn loops around the fingers-controls the overall tension of the yarn. Think of it like the path the thread takes on a sewing machine-all those ups, downs and arounds between the thread spool and the needle to make a nice even stitch on the fabric. Fortunately the yarn path around the fingers is much more forgiving than the thread path on a sewing machine-get that wrong and…yikes, thread ball and swear words! If you find a finger/yarn position that youre comfortable with while youre learnings knit or crochet, go for it!. When I was learning to knit and crochet the finger positions never made any sense to me either, I just kept getting all tangled up! My solution was to hold the yarn out of the way between my index and middle fingers until I learned to get all the loops in the right place. Not very elegant but it worked for me because I had some tension control as the yarn ran between two fingers. Eventually I naturally settled into the proper ...
Tingling index finger tip - Drove 11 hours yesterday now my left index finger is tingling and numb? Pressure. You have a pressure numbness. It should resolve over a few days.
Numbness in right index finger - Hi, I have a random, tingling, and numbness to my right index finger at random times of the day. I havent hit my arm or jammed my finger or any sorts? More information. Many possibilities, more information is needed. If one taps on your median nerve in the wrist does your finger tingle. If one puts pressure on the proper digital nerve in the palm or finger can you reproduce the symptoms. If the problem was in a nerve root (C6) you would also get shooting pains to from the neck down to the finger. Time will tell. It will either or worse.
Radiographs of both knees and the pelvis were obtained for all participants. Every participant also underwent separate radiographs of the right and left hands. Researchers then assessed the 2D:4D length ratio from radiographs using three methods: a direct visual comparison of the two finger ends, the measured ratio from the base to the tip of the upper finger joints, and the measured ratio of the metacarpal bone lengths.. Hands radiographs were classified visually as either type 1, index finger longer than the ring finger; type 2, index finger equal to the ring finger; or type 3, index finger shorter than the ring finger. Not surprisingly, men were 2.5 times more likely than women to have the type 3 pattern.. Using blind comparisons of hand radiographs with both knee and hip radiographs from random case and control samples combined with statistical analysis and odds ratios, researchers assessed the relationship between 2D:4D length ratio and OA. Compared with the other finger types, the type 3 ...
lengths in adults with related sex differences in children and infants. This paper reports the results of a study using serial radiographs to test for both sex differences in the fingers of infants and children and for a relationship between sex differences in the children and infant finger and adult finger length ratios. This is the first study using long-term serial data to evaluate the validity of finger length ratios as markers. We found not only that sex differences in finger length ratios arise prior to puberty, but that sex differences in the fingers of children are highly correlated with adult finger length ratios. Our results strongly encourage the further use of finger length ratios as markers of perinatal testosterone action. ...
Grasping of stroke patients is often affected by improper coactivation of muscles controlling the fingers. The restoration of hand function therefore represents an important goal in rehabilitation. Quantitative data on coordination between fingers can be helpful for the assessment of therapy effectiveness. We have designed a novel isometric finger device to assess three-dimensional forces applied by the thumb, index, and middle finger. The device was used in connection with a simple virtual reality task where the patient had to open a safe by sequentially rotating a knob using the isometric finger input. The presented virtual reality application was evaluated in a group of healthy subjects and a chronic stroke patient to obtain preliminary performance results. We analyzed the coordination of fingertip forces between the thumb and opposing fingers. Pearson correlation coefficient was determined to assess the coordination of force in each direction. In healthy subjects, the analysis of the ...
Region of Interest (ROI) extraction is a crucial step in an automatic finger vein recognition system. The aim of ROI extraction is to decide which part of the image is suitable for finger vein feature extraction. This paper proposes a finger vein ROI extraction method which is robust to finger displacement and rotation. First, we determine the middle line of the finger, which will be used to correct the image skew. Then, a sliding window is used to detect the phalangeal joints and further to ascertain the height of ROI. Last, for the corrective image with certain height, we will obtain the ROI by using the internal tangents of finger edges as the left and right boundary. The experimental results show that the proposed method can extract ROI more accurately and effectively compared with other methods, and thus improve the performance of finger vein identification system. Besides, to acquire the high quality finger vein image during the capture process, we propose eight criteria for finger vein capture
Shoulder Immobilizer Brace : The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effect of shoulder stabilizer muscle activity using the contraction of the finger flexor muscle. We divided the study subjects into a grasp group and a non-grasp group. The shoulder muscle activities of both the grasp group and the non-grasp group were measured by electromyography. Both the grasp group that used the contraction of the finger flexor muscle and the non-grasp group that did not use the contraction of the finger flexor muscle showed a state where Shoulder Stabilizer muscle activation increased as the weight borne by them increased. The serratus anterior muscles and rhomboid muscles showed differences between the two groups. Exercises using finger flexor muscle activation is a more effective method for patients who need shoulder stabilizer muscle strengthening exercises because of shoulder stabilizer muscle weakness ...
The choice of activity to improve finger extension of post-CVA patients is based on untested assumptions and hypotheses. In this study, using electromyography of the extrinsic finger muscles and electrogoniometry of wrist and finger joints, the effects of five types of exercise on the finger extension of post-CVA patients were documented.. Results indicated that resisted and rapid exercises recruited high percentages of output of all three muscles. Slow, unresisted extension exercises preferentially recruited the extensor digitorum. No exercise caused significant immediate changes in range of motion (ROM), flexor/extensor balance, time required to open the hand, or level of activity of the extensor digitorum during opening of the hand. Resisted grasp did not limit the patients ability to extend the fingers. Variability in percent of motor output among the subjects of this study indicates the need to monitor each patient during therapy. ...
RxPG] A psychologist at the University of Alberta, Hurd said that it has been known for more than a century that the length of the index finger relative to the ring finger differs between men and women. More recently, researchers have found a direct correlation between finger lengths and the amount of testosterone that a fetus is exposed to in the womb. The shorter the index finger relative to the ring finger, the higher the amount of prenatal testosterone, and--as Hurd and Bailey have now shown--the more likely he will be physically aggressive throughout his life ...

N2 - We studied the dependence between voluntary motion of a finger and pressing forces produced by the tips of other fingers of the hand. Participants moved one of the fingers (task finger) of the right hand trying to follow a cyclic, ramp-like flexion-extension template at different frequencies. The other fingers (slave fingers) were restricted from moving; their flexion forces were recorded and analyzed. Index finger motion caused the smallest force production by the slave fingers. Larger forces were produced by the neighbors of the task finger; these forces showed strong modulation over the range of motion of the task finger. The enslaved forces were higher during the flexion ...

Surface electromyogram-based finger motion classification has shown its potential for prosthetic control. However, most current finger motion classification models are subject-specific, requiring calibration when applied to new subjects. Generalized subject-nonspecific models are essential for real-world applications. In this study, the authors developed a subject-nonspecific model based on motor unit (MU) voting. A high-density surface electromyogram was first decomposed into individual MUs. The features extracted from each MU were then fed into a random forest classifier to obtain the finger label (primary prediction). The final prediction was selected by voting for all primary predictions provided by the decomposed MUs. Experiments conducted on 14 subjects demonstrated that our method significantly outperformed traditional methods in the context of subject-nonspecific finger motion classification models. ...

A sexually dimorphic characteristic, the second to fourth digit ratio (2D:4D ratio), has been shown to reflect the prenatal concentration of sex steroid hormones and to correlate with many personality, physiological, and life history traits. The correlations are usually stronger for the right than the left hand. Most studies have shown that the 2D:4D ratio does not vary with age or postnatal concentration of sex steroid hormones. Recently, a strong association between left hand 2D:4D ratio and infection with a common human parasite Toxoplasma has been reported. We hypothesized that the confounding effect of Toxoplasma infection on left hand 2D:4D ratio could be responsible for the stronger association between different traits and right hand rather than left hand 2D:4D ratio. This confounding effect of toxoplasmosis could also be responsible for the difficulty in finding an association between 2D:4D ratio and age or postnatal steroid hormone concentration. To test this hypothesis, we analyzed the ...

This paper presents experiments measuring psychophysical thresholds for multi-finger single point interaction with small haptic effects. Subjects used the UW Multi-Finger Haptic Display to interact with small haptic icons in a virtual environment. A forcedchoice adaptive thresholding method is used to find a minimum detectable force magnitude. First, studies are performed to evaluate the consistency of our test apparatus across the four fingertips and to compare our application of the adaptive thresholding method to the prior work. Next, force detection thresholds for individual fingers are collected and compared to the force detection threshold using four fingers simultaneously. ,p, The results show comparable force detection levels between index, middle, pinkie and multi-finger interaction (33.5, 32.1, 33.5, 28.9 mN respectively) but less sensitivity with the ring finger (mean threshold of 43.6 mN). Repeated measures analysis of variance and t-tests with Bonferroni correction supports these ...

Finger veins are a promising biometric pattern for personalized identification in terms of their advantages over existing biometrics. Based on the spatial pyramid representation and the combination of more effective information such as gray, texture and shape, this paper proposes a simple but powerful feature, called Pyramid Histograms of Gray, Texture and Orientation Gradients (PHGTOG). For a finger vein image, PHGTOG can reflect the global spatial layout and local details of gray, texture and shape. To further improve the recognition performance and reduce the computational complexity, we select a personalized subset of features from PHGTOG for each subject by using the sparse weight vector, which is trained by using LASSO and called PFS-PHGTOG. We conduct extensive experiments to demonstrate the promise of the PHGTOG and PFS-PHGTOG, experimental results on our databases show that PHGTOG outperforms the other existing features. Moreover, PFS-PHGTOG can further boost the performance in comparison

Research suggests that the ratio of the lengths of the index finger and the ring finger in males may be predictive of a variety of disorders related to disturbed hormonal balance. When the index finger is shorter than the ring finger, this results in a small 2D:4D ratio, pointing to a high exposure to testosterone in the uterus.

The human finger is a flexible, long and thin extension of the hand commonly referred to as the digits. The fingers on the hands correspond to the toes of the feet. Humans have five fingers on each hand and a significant feature in humans is the opposable thumb. Apart from the flexibility of the human fingers which make it such a useful appendage of the hand, there is also a high concentration of receptors in the finger which means it is also an important sense organ.. ...

Women of reproductive age often experience a variety of unpleasant symptoms prior to the onset of menstruation. While genetics may influence the variability of these symptoms and their severity among women, the exact causes remain unknown. We hypothesized that symptom variability originates from differences in the embryonic environment and thus development caused by variation in exposure to sex hormones. We measured the second to fourth digit ratios (2D:4D) in 402 young women and investigated the potential relationships of this ratio premenstrual symptoms using a generalized linear model. We found that two models (one with two predictors such as both hands digit ratios and the other with the difference between the two digit ratios, Dr-l) were significantly different from the constant model as assessed by chi-square test. The right digit ratio and Dr-l were negatively related to the symptom scores, and the left digit ratio was related to the scores. When premenstrual symptoms were classified into 8

The goal of this study was to address the controversy over evidence of prenatal androgen exposure reflected in the digit ratios of women with PCOS. Recently our group showed that when 2D:4D were measured with Vernier calipers, women with PCOS did not demonstrate finger length patterns consistent with increased levels of in utero androgen exposure [12]. This was in contrast to a previous report that had also used Vernier calipers to measure 2D:4D in women with PCOS [9]. Since observed differences in 2D:4D are generally small, there is growing support that studies investigating potential effects of prenatal androgens use the most consistent and reliable technique available to measure finger lengths [13-15, 18-20]. In this study, we imaged the hands of women with four clinical phenotypes of PCOS, healthy female controls and men, and used computer-based calipers to measure their finger lengths since this method was recently validated to be the most reliable [14, 15]. Consistent with this being the ...

We review the Finapres technology, embodied in several TNO-prototypes and in the Ohmeda 2300 and 2300e Finapres NIBP. Finapres is an acronym for FINger Arterial PRESsure, the device delivers a continuous finger arterial pressure waveform. Many papers report on the accuracy of the device in comparison with intra-arterial or with noninvasive but intermittent blood pressure measurements. We compiled the results of 43 such papers and found systolic, diastolic and mean accuracies, in this order, ranging from -48 to 30 mmHg, from -20 to 18 mmHg, and from -13 to 25 mmHg. Weighted for the number of subjects included pooled accuracies were -0.8 (SD 11.9), -1.6 (8.3) and -1.6 (7.6) mmHg respectively. Subdividing the pooled group according to criteria such as reference blood pressure, place of application, and prototype or commercial device we found no significant differences in mean differences or SD. Measurement at the finger allows uninterrupted recordings of long duration. The transmission of the ...

We explored possible effects of negative covariation among finger forces in multifinger accurate force production tasks on the classical Fittss speed-accuracy trade-off. Healthy subjects performed cyclic force changes between pairs of targets as quickly and accurately as possible. Tasks with two force amplitudes and six ratios of force amplitude to target size were performed by each of the four fingers of the right hand and four finger combinations. There was a close to linear relation between movement time and the log-transformed ratio of target amplitude to target size across all finger combinations. There was a close to linear relation between standard deviation of force amplitude and movement time. There were no differences between the performance of either of the two radial fingers (index and middle) and the multifinger tasks. The ulnar fingers (little and ring) showed higher indices of variability and longer movement times as compared with both radial fingers and multifinger ...

Prior to becoming Stiff Little Fingers, Jake Burns, vocals and guitar, Henry Cluney, guitar, Gordon Blair, bass, and Brian Faloon, drums, were playing in a rock music cover band, Highway Star, in Belfast.[2] Upon the departure of Gordon Blair (who went on to play with another Belfast group, Rudi), Ali McMordie took over on bass.[2] Cluney had by this time discovered punk, and introduced the rest of the band to it. They decided that Highway Star wasnt a punk enough name, and after a brief flirtation with the name The Fast, decided to call themselves Stiff Little Fingers, after the Vibrators song of the same name.[2] It was while doing a gig at the Glenmachan Hotel that they first met Gordon Ogilvie, who had been invited along for the evening by Colin McClelland, a journalist who Burns had been corresponding with. Ogilvie suggested they play material based upon their experience of the Troubles. McClelland arranged to get the band some recording time at a local radio station, and in the studio ...
The problem with doing a finger joint with all square fingers is that the maximum strength of the joint is the strength of the fingers. But the fingers can only be half as strong as the pieces of wood they join, seeing that half is cut away for the other fingers. When buying finger joined material, the fingers are always trapezoidal, or triangular. Provided that the glue is strong enough, and the angle narrow enough, this can produce a joint that is nearly as strong as the wood it joins. Ideally, I would have a sawblade that makes a trapezoidal cut, but such a thing doesnt exist, so I experimented a little with trying other variations on the end to end finger joint. ...
Does anyone out there have contraction fascics of the muscle on the back of the hand between the thumb and index finger? If I start to make a circle from my right index finger and thumb, I get fine fascics (rippling) in the muscle between the two. I cant feel them, but I can see them. Im very worried because this muscle seems a bit smaller than the corresponding muscle on my left hand, and Im right handed. When I make a hard circle of thumb and index finger, the muscle lump on the back of my hand is larger and more pronounced on my left than my right. The fascics are only there during partial contraction, not full strength or at rest. Also, they dont appear in a similar situation on the left ...

DENVER -- Before Carlos Gonzalez belted his sixth home run of the season in the first inning on Thursday night, a foul ball dealt him what was later diagnosed as a left index finger contusion.. Gonzalez was replaced with pinch-hitter Brandon Barnes in the fourth inning of the Rockies eventual 7-4 victory over the Mets, but neither he nor the Rockies believe the injury to be serious. The finger was still swollen by games end, but it had already improved.. Gonzalez suffered a ligament strain of his right middle finger last July, and it severely curtailed his playing time and effectiveness. Thursdays injury, he said, was nothing like that.. The Rockies announced that his availability would be assessed day to day, but manager Walt Weiss doesnt think the outfielder will be out of the lineup for long.. Its just, when you get jammed, it hurts really bad, Gonzalez said. But its something that will go away, not like last year. Last year was a ligament. That was a tough one, when you have to play ...
Well, Ive got to hand it to President Obama. He has managed to figure out how to do what no one thought was possible: A national flipping of the middle finger at God. It was a matter of waiting until the US Supreme Court legalized homosexual marriage nationwide. He then lit up the White House in the colors of the homosexual flag. Yes, it was brilliant, Becker wrote in his August Becker Report. The lawmaker also wondered if Gods wrath was about to destroy the United States.. Im not a Bible expert, but it seems like I recall Old Testament stories about the Israelis being militarily defeated because of their rebellious nature toward God, Becker said. Furthermore, the Book of Revelation does not seem to indicate Americas existence in the end times. Many believe that America will be destroyed from within. Conversely, Im wondering if God might be ready to make an example out of the US as He did the Old Testament Israelis? Stay tuned…. noted that Becker has said same-sex ...

ICD-10-PCS code 0PWVX7Z for Revision of Autologous Tissue Substitute in Left Finger Phalanx, External Approach is a medical classification as listed by CMS under Upper Bones range.
This is the most common type of trisomy 18 and is associated with advanced maternal age blood pressure chart and pulse discount lisinopril 17.5mg overnight delivery, particularly of 35 years or greater blood pressure 10070 discount 17.5 mg lisinopril overnight delivery. Translocation trisomy 18 occurs when two separate copies of chromosome 18 are present, but a third copy of part of chromosome 18 is attached to another chromosome. In this instance, there are 46 total chromosomes present, but 3 copies of part of chromosome 18. Mosaic trisomy 18 occurs when some, but not all, of the cells in the body contain three copies of all or a large part of chromosome 18. Minor anomalies associated with trisomy 18 may include low-set malformed auricles (external ears), overlapping of the index and fifth fingers over the third and fourth fingers, absent distal crease on the fifth finger, hirsutism (excess hair) of the forehead and back, lateral deviation of the hands, a hypoplastic thumb, a single transverse ...
The Digital Pulse (the pulse in the fetlock joint) is faint and hard to find on a healthy horse that has been standing quietly. When a horse has been worked hard recently, the pulse will be strong and very obvious, and as you let your fingers rest on it, you can feel the pressure build then release smoothly as the blood perfuses the hoof.. If a horse has laminitis or an abscess, blood perfusion through the hoof is interrupted by the pressure caused by inflammation, and the digital pulse starts to bound, and is referred to as a bounding pulse because the blood starts to enter the hoof, the congestion in the hoof stops the surge of blood, it bounds back up the vessel and is shunted around the hoof to a vein. The pulse seems to bounce under your finger.. Being able to find your horses digital pulse is a valuable skill that unfortunately far too few people can do. For great pictures and help go to:.

Well I can t really tell if there is any loss of strength because if I try to do any high power move involving the finger, the pain becomes overwhelming. So I cannot put the finger in a situation where it would be tested to its maximum strength limits because the pain will cause me to let go before I max it out. I do find it moderately difficult to pull moves using my left hand versus my right hand but at the moment that s simply because I cannot use my pinky finger without causing pain so I am pulling moves on three fingers versus four on the other hand. Furthermore I can t really move the finger out of the way when doing moves so even if I put the hand on a hold and pull on the other three fingers, some tension will inevitably be put on the finger causing an increase in pain which will limit my maximum capabilities using that hand. At the moment I cannot place any weight on the finger without causing pain. The finger does not hurt under normal daily activities but if I try to climb on it, it ...
In this experiment, the pain was a harmless, perceived pain generated by a paradoxical phenomenon where placing different fingers in water of different temperatures leads the brain to think the body is in pain. To generate this pain the middle finger is placed in cool water (14ºC) while the fingers on either side are placed in warm water (43ºC). This phenomenon is known as the thermal grill illusion.. The sensory pathway (i.e. the signal competing with the pain) was the gentle self-touch of the other hand. This involved touching the fingertips of each hand against the other.. What did the research involve?. Self-touch is said to provide proprioceptive information (which means it informs our awareness of where body parts are positioned) as well as providing thermal and tactile signals that could be expected to affect pain signalling in the spinal cord.. The researchers investigated this using the thermal grill illusion (TGI), where participants immersed their index and ring fingers in warm ...
NEW YORK - Rockies all-star left fielder Carlos Gonzalez, struggling with a painful sprained middle finger on his right hand, was placed on the 15-day disabled list Wednesday.. This is very frustrating and its not something I wanted, Gonzalez said. But this is something we had to do for the good of the team - and hopefully to help me get better. I mean, I wanted to play, but I cant be in this situation.. Gonzalez has been hampered by the finger injury on his glove hand since a July 7 game at Arizona. He hoped to avoid the DL, even changing his grip on the bat, but he consistently reinjured the finger when he took hard swings. Rockies trainer Keith Dugger said Gonzalez has a sprain of the collateral ligament of his middle finger.. Once you injure it, it can take four to six weeks to heal completely, Dugger said. CarGo was aggravating the finger when he swung the bat. Hopefully this rest will help. Actually, I know it will help some. Well see how much.. Gonzalez said he knew he was ...
There are several methods available to numb the finger. Our study aims to compare two methods for numbing the patients finger to see which one of these methods is least painful for the patient. The first method is a single injection in the palm of the hand and the second method is two injections in the back of the hand or finger. The second method is the most commonly used method in our emergency department. Our hypothesis is that the single injection into the palm is less painful than the double injection in the back of the hand or finger.. Patients who present to the emergency department with finger injuries that require their finger to be numb for treatment or assessment of their injury will be given a study information sheet and consent will be obtained for participation in the study. Participants will then be randomly assigned to receive either the single injection in the palm or the double injection in the back of the hand or finger. A medical officer will perform the injection to numb ...
Anatomical variations of the flexor digitorum superficialis (FDS) muscle and tendon unit are frequently reported by anatomists and clinicians. Anatomical muscle variations of the FDS and its tendons may include variations of muscle belly, presence of accessory or duplicate tendons, abnormal tendon connections, and absence of muscle or tendon components. Such variations may or may not have clinical implications. This report presents a case not described previously: a unilateral accessory muscle of the flexor digitorum superficialis which was connected by a thick tendon to the flexor digitorum superficialis muscle; it was directed proximally to the insertion of the medial epicondyle of the humerus, next to the superficialis head of the pronator teres muscle ...
There are surgical and nonsurgical treatments for trigger finger, depending on the severity of the condition. When the symptoms are mild, the patient may be advised to simply rest the finger and take over the counter pain relievers like acetaminophen or NSAIDS to help reduce inflammation and minimize pain. The patient may also wear a splint to better facilitate the resting position of the finger.. In some cases the doctor may advise steroid injections administered directly into the tendon sheath to correct the problem. Sometimes this procedure only provides temporary relief and improvement, requiring a second injection. If the condition is not resolved after the second injection, the patient may be advised to undergo surgery. If the patient has had trigger finger for a long time or if they have a medical condition such as diabetes that is associated with it, injections are not likely to be as effective or a permanent solution.. Some patients undergo surgery to correct trigger finger. The surgery ...

Grasping an object between the pads of the thumb and the index finger is the prototype grip used for precision-handling studies. Precision grip must be controlled in order to achieve the optimal minimum force necessary to prevent the slip of an object. In perceptual tasks such as surface discrimination, the normal loading must be modulated to provoke a controlled slip. The precise control of finger pressure derives from the responses of strain-sensitive cutaneous mechanoreceptors at the tips of the digits, as well as from motor control systems that sense muscle length and power based on sensory input from both cutaneous and muscle mechanoreceptors [1,2]. The dynamic tactile signals from the cutaneous mechanoreceptors reliably encode various aspects of contact events around which most object manipulation tasks are organized [3,4]. In 1984, Westling & Johansson [5] published the results of an ingenious paradigm to study the control of grip force during the grasping and lifting of objects. They ...
