The whole quantity 12 of scientific development via know-how is dedicated to the paintings of work-mates in Japan. also, complete authority and accountability either for the election of subject matters and for the reviewing approach were delegated to visitor Editors from Japan. What are the ambitions of this unique factor and why has Japan been elected to offer itself during this manner? overseas journals reminiscent of clinical growth via know-how often include papers from authors world wide. Such concerns supply a slightly finished survey on diverse medical initiatives yet don't replicate the normal and quantity of clinical expertise in a undeniable nation. i believe that matters just like the current one supply much better details at the real nation of study and improvement in a rustic than an abnormal series of medical experiences. it's not meant that every one destiny problems with clinical growth via know-how will situation merely nationwide concerns. the current factor is an exception. in spite of the fact that, if the readers relish such an method, then different nationwide matters could be released. There are numerous purposes in desire of Japan getting ready the 1st nationwide matters. all of us appreciate the historical past, culture and tradition of this nation, yet we're additionally inspired through the excessive regular of study, strengthen­ ment and technical realisation completed in approximately all excessive know-how fields. there isn't any doubt, that Japan is likely one of the major countries within the box of scientific technology.

Otherwise, irreversible electrochemical changes are produced at the electrode-tissue interface, which vary the electro-physiological excitability of the neuromuscular system. A coupling capacitor or isolation transformer is introduced in the circuit for this purpose. 9 J. 3 *- a AM */ 50 ~ 100 ~ ~ V 150 Jlsec b 2 CD g &. 20Hz 0 30Hz 10Hz Time Fig. 3.

The shortage or elimination of wired electric circuits may be effective in reducing the current induction by electric charges. More intensive investigations would be necessary on membrane design for glucose sensors. The sensor detects the substance in the tissue which has a narrow range of its concentration. And the tissue fluid contains some substances which interfere the sensors' outputs. Therefore, a membrane which shows semipermeability against various substances should be sought for the specifiity in measurement.
