Mechanobiology of Bone Development and Computational Simulations
Chen, Gongfa, Schuetz, Michael, & Pearcy, Mark (2010) Mechanobiology of Bone Development and Computational Simulations. In Bronner, Felix, Farach-Carson, Mary C., & Roach, H.I (Trudy) (Eds.) Bone and Development. Springer, London, pp. 279-295.
Bone is important because it provides the skeleton structural integrity and enables movement and locomotion. Its development and morphology follow its function. It adapts to changes of mechanical loading and has the ability to repair itself after damage or fracture. The processes of bone development, bone adaptation, and bone regeneration in fracture healing are regulated, in part, by mechanical stimuli that result when the bone is loaded.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
