The force magnitudes calculated for the M. cataphractus model were then applied to the volume rescaled models. School of Biological Sciences, Monash University, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, https://doi.org/10.1371/journal.pone.0053873.g028. In Finite Element modelling, single nodes to which a load or restraint are applied can be subject to very high stresses which are an artefact of the modelling technique. Don't get me wrong, long face syndrome is hardly elephantitis. Left: the equations of motion associated with shaking, where is angular displacement, is angular velocity and is angular acceleration. The authors thank Matthew Colbert and Jesse Maisano (Digital Morphology, University of Texas) and Chris Brochu (University of Iowa) for access to CT data. Even though the present study focuses on mandibular biomechanics, crania were included within the model to provide accurate boundary conditions (i.e. In the upper jaw, the anterior snout has an almost tubular section and this is mirrored by the symphyseal part of the lower jaw in longirostrine crocodilians; the formation of an elongate symphysis seems to be a configuration allowing a minimal diameter of the mandible, and can be explained by hydrodynamic and/or energetic criteria. Suddenly it makes sense why my tongue has always felt too big for my mouth (the palate is too narrow), why I always bite into my inner cheeks when I chew (deflated cheeks are another symptom), and why I could never do as my yoga teachers asked and rest my tongue on the roof of my mouth during savasana (it is too high). Yes, truly. Data is plotted as natural logarithms of linear measurements (mm) and angles (degrees). The long faced disciples remind me of the joke told by Geraldine Grainger, Vicar of Dibley, at the end of one of her shows. Department of Anatomy and Developmental Biology, School of Biomedical Sciences, Monash University, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, Ruby Hamad, right, flashes her gummy smile. With varying degrees of severity, many of us who have it will probably never know. I'm still wrapping my head around the fact that such a condition exists and I have never heard of it, let alone that I actually have it. (A) shows the beam approximation of mandibles with long and short symphyseal lengths. ãé¡ããã¦ããã®ï¼ãã¨ãããããªæå³ã§ãããå®ã¯ããã®âlong faceâã¨ããè¡¨ç¾ã«ã¯ããå´ããªãé¡ãããæãã¤ãªé¡ãããæµ®ããªãé¡ãã¾ãã¯ãæ²ããããªé¡ããªã©ã¨ããæå³ãããã In shaking, the mandible acts as a cantilevered beam that is loaded laterally (X axis) at its anterior end and fixed posteriorly; its mechanics will be influenced by both the length of the beam and by the moment of inertia in the lateral direction (Iyy, about the vertical axis). Maximum angular acceleration () occurs each time the skull changes direction; in our case (radians/sec2), where a positive value indicates counter clockwise acceleration and a negative value indicates a clockwise acceleration. The problem definition used to determine the equations of motion that describe the feeding behaviour associated with shaking a prey item. Similarly, the twisting load case was calculated on the basis of a large prey item being held in the jaws, with the crocodilian imposing a torsion load on the bite point by rotating its postcranium about its own long axis at a rate of 2 full rotations per second (Figure 15). (C), Regression lines for alligatorids, non-tomistomine crocodylids, Gavialis, and Tomistoma. David Eggerschwiler. T. schlegelii is clearly separated from the other specimens along the PC1 axis, but not on the PC2. The best predictors of performance for biting and twisting loads in FE models were overall length and symphyseal length respectively; for shaking loads symphyseal length and a multivariate measurement of shape (PC1– which is strongly but not exclusively correlated with symphyseal length) were equally good predictors. Strain in the second set of simple beam models, plotted against morphological variables (from top) length, symphyseal length, angle, and width, for biting (left), shaking (middle) and twisting (right) loads. How could this be? Relative bite forces accord with in vivo studies of crocodilians, although absolute simulated forces are lower. The consequences of long face syndrome are not merely aesthetic. long face A facial expression denoting sadness, dissappointment, or dissatisfaction. Comment Report abuse. â¦ Linear morphometric variables were selected a priori on the basis of beam theory principles. Surface meshes were optimised to remove unwanted internal geometry (Figure 8) and to control the resolution of the final ‘tetrahedral’ solid mesh. All four teeth (the fourth premaxillary pair from the cranium, and the fifth dentary pair from the mandible) were designated as ‘holding’ prey. (CL-CW-VSL-VA) – Constant length and width, variable symphyseal length and angle. https://doi.org/10.1371/journal.pone.0053873.g019. The factor determining strain values in the beam models under twisting appears therefore to be angle. (see 1995 in music ). The maximum estimated bite force, 2145 N for a rear bite by the C. intermedius ‘natural’ sized model is considerably less than that reported for that taxon (6276 N for an animal by Erickson ). In biting (TeT) loads, strain is higher in longirostrine mandibles and is highest in Tomistoma. For biting and twisting simple linear measurements of the mandible provide better predictors of mechanics than a multivariate measure of shape (PC1); with overall length and symphyseal length outperforming PC1 for biting and twisting respectively. PC1 eigenscore is a slightly better predictor of strain than symphyseal length in shaking loads, although it should be noted that symphyseal length is a large component of the shape variation associated with PC1. This action was simulated by a link element between the relevant surfaces on the pterygoid and mandible, which allowed all movements except medial translation of the mandible. constant length and symphyseal length, variable angle and width (CL,CSL;VA, VW), constant length and width, variable symphyseal length and angle (CL, CW; VSL, VA), constant angle and width, variable symphyseal length and length (CA, CW; VSL, VL), constant symphyseal length and width, variable length and angle (CSL, CW; VL, VA). Why the Long Face? For the FEMs, body mass was calculated from skull volume using the equation log10 body mass = log10 (skull volume x 0.9336+1.9763) using data from McHenry . The Gharial (Gavialis gangeticus) is the longest snouted form and is described as a specialist fish eater , , whilst the saltwater (Crocodylus porosus) and Nile (C. niloticus) crocodiles have shorter, more robust snouts and are capable of taking terrestrial prey much larger than themselves . The four measurement variables explored with the beam models were all aligned in the XZ (coronal) plane - the beam models are in effect 2D models of the mandible. The TeT load case thus eliminated the effects of size and load, and provides the simplest examination of the effects of shape upon skull mechanics. ... Deformations are exaggerated to better illustrate the structural response to loads. The long upper jaw means the mouth remains open during sleep, frequently causing sleeplessness and sleep apnoea. Three sets of models were produced. Taxon abbreviations: Ot, Osteolaemus tetraspis; Cm, Crocodylus moreletii; Cng, Crocodylus novaeguineae; Ci, Crocodylus intermedius; Cj, Crocodylus johnstoni; Mc, Mecistops cataphractus; Ts, Tomistoma schlegelii. In the plots of strain against length and symphyseal length in twisting, T. schlegelii appears to be an outlier while the data points for the other specimens suggest a negative relationship between length and symphyseal length for strain in twisting, but again these lack explanatory power under Akaike scores. For biting, we evaluated mandibular length, the eigenscores of the first principal component, and the eigenscores of the first two principal components. Yes For shaking and twisting forces, we simulated an isometric force in the muscles (rather than isotonic fibre shortening during jaw adduction in biting) by assigning an increased elastic modulus to each truss element ; this had the effect of bracing the jaws as they hold a prey item, as occurs during actual shaking and twisting behaviours. Length was also an effective predictor of strain under twisting loads, and also covaries with symphyseal length. For the final isosurface that formed the basis for the FE model, we standardised the level of accuracy by using the quality setting that gave a contour error between 0.05 and 0.1% of mandible length. Oxygen inhaled through the mouth is dry and bypasses the natural filters and humidifiers of the nasal passages, causing oxygen deprivation, tiredness, and poor concentration. EMs within 2 of each other were considered nearly identical in information, while EMs with ΔAICc values of 4 and 8 are considered fair and EMs with a ΔAICc greater than 10 are poor . Correlation with symphyseal length was positive and linear for models where symphyseal length varied (CA-CW-VL-VSL), but strain did not vary between models when symphyseal length was constant (CL-CSL-VA-VW, CSL-CW-VA-VL). (CSL, CW; VL, VA) – Constant symphyseal length and width, variable length and angle. Bite force predictions from the hi-res FEMs are given in Table 11 and plotted in Figure 20. Is the Subject Area "Mandible" applicable to this article? By combining predictions based in beam theory with data from complex FE modelling, we are able to test a priori hypotheses of the mechanical consequences of changes in morphology. Taxon: O.t, Osteolaemus tetraspis; C.ng, Crocodylus novaeguineae; C.i, Crocodylus intermedius; C.j, Crocodylus johnstoni; M.c, Mecistops cataphractus; T.s, Tomistoma schlegelii; C.m, Crocodylus moreletii. For twisting (TeT) loads, strain is highest at the symphyseal-rami junction, again with the exception of the Tomistoma model where the highest strains are at the anterior end of the symphysis. Symphyseal length (SL) shows the greatest percentage change along the PC1 axis, with some change in width (W) but only minor changes in angle (A) and length (L) (Figure 18).

A smile makes your face wider, whereas a frown or sad face makes it appear narrower or longer. https://doi.org/10.1371/journal.pone.0053873.t009. Length does not change along PC2. Also consistent with armchair predictions and beam modelling, length was the most important determinant of mechanical strain under biting loads (Hypothesis B). Dimensions of the beam models are based upon the volume rescaled versions of the high resolution FEMs for the corresponding species. Compile a comparative dataset, based upon CT scans of several crocodilian species that between them show a spectrum of symphyseal length relative to mandibular length. When people can have bona fide medical conditions all their lives and not even know until middle age, then surely that is an indictment on the poor communication channels between academia, medicine and the public. Over the past few weeks, I have asked dozens of people if they know about long face syndrome, and the answer has not varied: "Never heard of it.". The slight non-linearity (slope of the regression line of logarithm transformed data is −0.93) in the data is not expected from the basic lever mechanics that are sometimes used to model bite force ,  and may stem from the measurement of bite force in the rotational axis of the jaw hinge; any component of the joint reaction force not aligned with that axis will be ignored by this measurement. https://doi.org/10.1371/journal.pone.0053873.g005, https://doi.org/10.1371/journal.pone.0053873.t001. Visualisation of shape change along PC axes was performed using Morphologika v2.5, . Antifa man who hit Seattle officer with a metal bat said he wanted to âslit every SPD throatâ âWe want law and orderâ: Minneapolis residents sue over shrinking police resources here. Her team looked at the response in domestic horses to whinnies (high pitched neighing) from both familiar and unfamiliar conspecifics. Hey, kiddo, why the long face? Why the Long Face is the seventh studio album by Scottish band Big Country, released in 1995. Bite force is for rear bites, in vivo bite force data from Erickson . However, the beam models used here were very simple so it is possible that a very small increase in their complexity (such as allowing beam section to vary along the length of the beam, especially in the vertical axis) may capture an important aspect of the actual 3-dimensional structure and improve the predictive power of the beam models compared with the complex FE models. We used the Finite Element Analysis package Strand7  for analysis of beam and complex models. Top: biting load case plotted with a maximum strain limit of 0.001 (left) and 0.003 (right); the latter limit shows the position of the peak strains, and the former gives best comparison between the different load cases. Under biting, the mandible experiences highest stress posteriorly on the rami, which decreases anteriorly along the mandible (Figure 22A). The results here are somewhat encouraging for palaeobiomechanists; since simple measures of mandibular shape (length and symphyseal length) provide some insight into the mechanics of the mandible, the same measurements may be applicable to all of the above fossil reptile groups, and to marine mammals such as odontocetes, archaeocetes, and basal mysticetes , providing an answer to the functional morphologist’s question – where to put the callipers? Taxon abbreviations: O.t, Osteolaemus tetraspis; C.ng, Crocodylus novaeguineae; C.i, Crocodylus intermedius; C.j, Crocodylus johnstoni; M.c, Mecistops cataphractus; T.s, Tomistoma schlegelii; C.m, Crocodylus moreletii. In shaking, strain correlates with symphyseal length and PC1, whilst in twisting strain correlates with symphyseal length, length, and PC1. Although the structural consequences of this morphology have been explored for the upper jaw, those for the lower jaw have received less attention , . The skulls were modelled with homogeneous material property sets, with the brick elements representing bone assigned an elastic (Young’s) modulus of 13,471 MPa. As we calculated jaw muscle forces from the osteology of the adductor chamber, the qualitative patterns of bite force predicted by the FEMs appear to be consistent with the empirical data, even if absolute force magnitude is less. Since the early 2000s complex Finite Element models have been increasingly used to investigate skull mechanics in various fossil and living species; whilst different studies have made use of deductive and experimental approaches , many have used a comparative biomechanical approach to reconstruct the palaeobiology of extinct species , , , , , , . (A) and (B) show results from models at ‘natural’ sizes, (C) and (D) show results from models rescaled to the volume of the M. cataphractus model. Right: Strain response of mandibles at maximal bite force (NoLLC), plotted against length for (from top) front, mid and back bites. Under simulated bite loads, strain in the beam models correlated positively and linearly with length when symphyseal length also varied (CA-CW-VL-VSL), and with length when symphyseal length did not vary (CSL-CW-VA-VL). I even took to trying to contain my smile, conscious of not letting my upper lip stray too far from the top of my teeth, only to wind up with a sort of pained grimace that makes look oddly mortified. In general, longirostrine taxa have proportionally longer mandibular symphyses than do mesorostrine or brevirostrine relatives (Figures 2 and 3). The large m. pterygoidius posterior wraps around the lower jaw to insert on the retroarticular process, where its lateral extent cannot be delimited. Some previous studies have combined beam theory with FE modelling , , but used very low resolution FE models. There is literally an excess of maxilla- the upper jaw. Deformations are exaggerated to better illustrate the structural response to loads. This motion is considered to be harmonic; since the skull oscillates about a neutral axis in a set period of time (); in our case this period is 0.25 seconds – i.e at a frequency () of 4 full cycles per second. Brevi- and mesorostrine morphologies were found to consistently outperform longirostrine types when subject to equivalent biting, shaking and twisting loads. These landmark locations were then exported to Morphologika v2.5 , where procrustes superimposition and principal component analysis were undertaken. Jaw adductor musculature was simulated using truss elements that carry only tensional loads between muscle origin and insertion points , , . Within a mandible, these measurements co-vary and so their effects cannot be explored independently of each other. If the details of cranial anatomy are critical to modelling its biomechanics, then the principles elucidated from one group should not be generalised to another. In contrast, if the pattern of variation in the hi-res FE dataset correlates better with another variable (whether a linear measurement or a metric of shape) then the beam models do not explain the biomechanics of the actual rostrum, and the mechanics of complex biological structures resists explanation using fundamental principles. Catching your child mouth-breathing at a young age can spare them a lifetime of difficulty. Qualitative comparison of Beam and FE models shows that beam models accurately predict ranked performance under biting, partially predict rank under shaking, and completely fail to predict rank under twisting (Table 17). In crocodilians that feed on large prey, the snout is shorter, broader, and usually taller in section than longirostrine forms; this shape is better for resisting high loads during feeding and is the defining characteristic of meso- and brevirostrine taxa . Data is plotted as natural logarithms of linear measurements (mm) and angles (degrees). Speaking to a group of servicemen in Kosovo, Gov. 297 mm in M. cataphractus. Rip BoJack Horseman Conversely, a large discrepancy between beam and hi-res FE models indicates that the complexity of the biological structure overwhelms the capacity for analysis using beam theory, and/or the aspects of shape that determine mechanical behaviour have not been captured in the beam model. The first set (beam models #1) explored the effects of four linear variables - overall length (‘Length’, L), symphyseal length (SL), width (W), and inter- rami angle (‘Angle’, A) - upon stresses in the beam model representing the mandible. There was no correlation with width. In the mandible, strain in biting and twisting was best predicted by overall length and symphyseal length respectively, while shaking was best predicted by both symphyseal length and multivariate measure of shape (PC1). Why is free speech something you can be murdered for in Western Europe? Policy â Why the long face? No great horse lover myself but put them in the right artistic context and they make a big contribution to a room. For each specimen, solid mesh resolution was set such that the number of tetrahedral elements in the cranium was approximately 1.5 million. At the ripe age of 41, I have just been diagnosed with what is officially known as vertical maxillary excess (VME) with Class II malocclusion, but what also goes by the amusing, if decidedly unflattering moniker, long face syndrome. In twisting strain magnitude for Tomistoma is much higher than other specimen and the pattern of strain contours is qualitatively different. Based on photos by CRM of specimen BMNH 126.96.36.199 (A), BMNH 19188.8.131.52 (B), BMNH 18184.108.40.206 (C) and USNM 504917 (D), after Cruichshank  (E), after O’Keefe  (F) based on fossil specimen BMNH R1157 illustrated by Owen  (G), after Motani  (H), after Andrews (I), after Mueller-Töwe (J). Contour plots of von Mises strain were also used to provide a visual comparison of results. Analysis was performed within the R statistical programming environment version 2.15.0  using the ‘shapes’  and ‘MuMIn’  packages. The third dimension is undoubtedly important in crocodilian skull biomechanics ,  and is here incorporated in the hi-res FE models (see below). If, however, the loads used in shaking and/or twisting are actually much higher than those used here, then shaking and/or twisting could possibly have the strongest influence on mandibular morphology, resulting in a morphology that is stronger under these loads than in biting. Yes Jill had such a long face yesterday after she learned that she failed her exam. This value was based upon the modulus of the mean bone density in the M. cataphractus skull, using the conversions of Hounsfield Unit to density to modulus given by McHenry and colleagues . Since the hypotheses being tested concern shape, it was necessary to control for size: this was done by rescaling each model so that the volume of cranium and mandible were the same as for the Mecistops cataphractus model , , which was intermediate between the smallest and largest specimens used in the analysis. Trump can use Kim as a diversion when things get a little rough at home. We therefore used the 95% values of strain in each model  which provide a similar pattern of results as the mean, median, 75%, and 90% values but differ from the 100% (i.e. Isosurfaces were exported as STL (Stereolithography) files – a surface mesh comprising triangles. I really liked this Sooz. Linear measurements were corrected for size using skull (cranium+mandible) volume. https://doi.org/10.1371/journal.pone.0053873.g024.

Phylogram (right) shows poor correlation of specimen PC2 scores with phylogeny. Whilst comparative approaches are of high value to palaeobiology, they tend to use post hoc analysis and are sometimes difficult to conduct in a way that explicitly tests hypotheses of form and function. Bottom right: shows the equations used to calculate the maximum force () exerted on the skull as a result of shaking a prey item of mass () – approximately 2.55 kg in the M. cataphractus example shown here. For shaking, beam and complex FE models agreed on the relative performance of five models but differed in their rankings of the M. cataphractus and C. novaeguineae models. Elastic modulus of the beams used to reinforce the loaded/restrained surfaces were assigned a modulus of 100,000 MPa and a diameter of 1.92 mm in the M. cataphractus model, scaled accordingly in the other models.
