Coiter, Volcher


(Coyter, Koyter). Born 1534 in Groningen, Netherlands; died June 2, 1576, in Brienne, France. Dutch anatomist and physician.

In 1555, Coiter began to study in Italy and France; from 1562 he was in Bologna, where, after receiving his doctoral degree, he taught anatomy and surgery. In 1566 he was arrested by the Inquisition as a Protestant. After his release he left for Germany and worked as a physician in Amberg (from 1566) and Nuremberg (from 1569). He was a surgeon in the war against France. Coiter was one of the first anatomists and embryologists. He was the first to give a scientific description of the development of the chick embryo (1572), and he conducted comparative studies of the anatomies of many vertebrates (amphibians, birds, and mammals), sketching their skeletons.

The results indicated that premier expression occurred in the first 300 ms after stimulus onset while responding to unpleasant stimuli in the corrugator supercilii muscle and was strongly correlated to the event-related potential (ERP) reflecting the initial affective processing (Zhu & Suzuki, 2017, in press).
Following Zhu and Suzuki (2016), we identified the muscle activity of the corrugator supercilii muscle and zygomaticus major muscle.

Overall, fEMG responses for the corrugator supercilii muscle were available for 51 participants (14 males, 37females), of which 24 were in the control condition and 27 were in the suppression condition.
Especially, the activities from the corrugator supercilii muscle 150 ms after the stimulus onset draws our attention since these responses are similar to the control condition and suppression condition, and fit our hypothesis well.
Our eye related features were constructed to monitor the activity of the orbicularis oculi and the corrugator supercilii muscles, and our results are connected with previous work that report game events affecting the activity of the orbicularis oculi [22] and the corrugator [21] muscles.
Similarly, when observing an angry face, one tends to activate the corrugator supercilii muscles, which furrow the brow [19].
It involves the involuntary activity of the orbicularis oculi, procerus, and corrugator supercilii muscles. Its symptoms include lower facial spasms and oromandibular spasms.
