In addition, the researchers used a laboratory technique called wire myography to examine the response of mouse arteries to THC, finding that JW-1 blocked THC's negative effects on the function of the inner lining.
Tenders are invited for supply of a therapeutic chair for conducting sessions of electroencephalographic examinations, registration of ep, conducting tms therapy, myography (compatible with the customers equipment for eeg, emg, vp and tms)
In this context, different methods such as the mechanomyography [13], sonomyography [14], optical myography [15, 16], and the force myography (FMG) [17] have been proposed in order to overcome the drawbacks presented by the myoelectric case.

Finally, dissected thoracic aorta tissues were collected carefully and isolated from the surrounding connective tissues and fat and were then cut into aorta rings with a length of around 2 mm for later analysis using myography. This procedure was performed under a dissection microscope with the dissected aorta immersed in Krebs' buffer.
After removing fat and connective tissue from both vascular beds, segments (2 mm in length) were transferred into wire myography chambers (DMT, Denmark) and equilibrated in 5 ml of gassed (95% [O.sub.2] and 5% C[O.sub.2]) Krebs-Henseleit (pH 7.4) at 37[degrees]C.
Phillips and Craelius, who first proposed force myography (FMG), used pressure sensors to produce topographic maps of the pressure exerted against the hard prosthetic socket [22].

Applications include muscle condition assessment by electrical impedance myography [1], understanding and interpretation of electromyogram recordings [2, 3], electrical impedance tomography [4], and evaluation of antenna transmission within tissues for body-area network applications [5].
