The present invention is directed to methods for analyzing electrical signals generated by biological tissues, such as muscles (e.g., cardiac or skeletal muscle) and tissue within the nervous system (e.g., neurons within the central and peripheral nervous systems). The tissue may be a patients own, or it may have been transplanted into the patient from a donor organism or from a tissue or cell culture. The result of the analysis indicates the condition of the tissue, and results obtained over time can alert a patient or health care professional to changes in that condition.

No one would underestimate the importance of sunlight to the evolution of life on the earth and its role in human development. However, all humans - especially individuals who are lightly pigmented or whose occupation or lifestyle exposes them to excessive amounts of sunlight - are potentially susceptible to its deleterious effects. These effects can range from acute biological responses, such as sunburn and skin tanning, to conditions resulting from chronic exposure such as photoaged skin and potentially life-threatening conditions such as skin cancer. The objective of this review is to present a concise and up-to-date perspective on the effects of UVB, UVA, visible, and infrared radiation on cutaneous biochemistry and physiology. © 2012 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.

Synopsis There is growing scientific evidence that the health, well-being and the attractiveness of the skin are strongly influenced by nutrition. Consumers recognize this and have supported the creation of a global cosmeceuticals market estimated in 2010 at $27.2 billion. Early in 2011, the US Department of Health and Human Services and Department of Agriculture issued the Dietary Guidelines for Americans, 2010. Twelve vitamins and nine minerals were recognized as essential. The minerals include calcium, copper, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, selenium, zinc, potassium and sodium. Although the topical benefits of several minerals such as zinc, magnesium and iron are recognized and, in some cases, approved by the FDA, the topical benefits of the others to the skin are largely unexplored and unexploited. This review attempts to summarize what has been published in the literature on the interactions of the eight of the nine essential elements with the skin.

A method for pacing a chamber of a patients heart includes providing a pulse generator including at least one lead configured to deliver electrical impulses to at least one activation site located in the myocardium of the heart. The pulse generator is implanted in the patient through a sub-xiphoid approach or a mini-thoracotomy using a robotic mechanism. The at least one lead is connected to the activation sites using the robotic mechanism.
