Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Scanning electron microscope analyses of dental microwear showed that (1) microscopic striations are not caused by tooth-tooth contact, and (2) the model of striation formation used by Ryan (1979a, J. dent. Res.58, 525-530; 1979b, Am. J. phys. Anthrop.50, 155-168) to make directional interpretations of jaw movement is incorrect.
