From movement to models: a tribute to professor Alan G. Hannam


Hylander, W L; McMillan, A S; Lam, E W; Wanatabe, M; Langenbach, G E; Stavness, I; Peck, C C; Palla, S (2008). From movement to models: a tribute to professor Alan G. Hannam. Journal of Orofacial Pain, 22(4):307-316.

Abstract

This tribute article to Professor Alan G. Hannam is based on 7 presentations for him at the July 1, 2008 symposium honoring 3 "giants" in orofacial neuroscience: Professors B. J. Sessle, J. P. Lund, and A. G. Hannam. This tribute to Hannam's outstanding career draws examples from his 40-year academic career and spans topics from human evolution to complex modeling of the craniomandibular system. The first presentation by W. Hylander provides a plausible answer to the functional and evolutionary significance of canine reduction in hominins. The second presentation, by A. McMillan, describes research activities in the field of healthy aging, including findings that intensity-modulated radiotherapy improves the health condition and quality of life of people with nasopharyngeal carcinoma in comparison to conventional radiotherapy. The developments in dental imaging are summarized in the third paper by E. Lam, and an overview of the bite force magnitude and direction while clenching is described in the fourth paper by M. Watanabe. The last 3 contributions by G. Langenbach, I. Staveness, and C. Peck deal with the topic of bone remodeling as well as masticatory system modeling, which was Hannam's main research interest in recent years. These contributions show the considerable advancements that have been made in the last decade under Hannam's drive, in particular the development of an interactive model comprising, in addition to the masticatory system, also the upper airways. The final section of the article includes a final commentary from Professor Hannam.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
