(Greek: measure)

1. The inability to fix the range of a movement in muscular activity.

Rapid and brusque movements are made with more force than necessary.

2. The inability, in the performance of a movement, to judge direction and distance, seen particularly when the patient attempts to touch his nose or the examiner’s finger with his finger, or his knee with his heel.

The movement, while generally in the right direction, either veers to the side of the target or overshoots (hypermetria).

The inability to visualize correctly the size and shape of things.
A lack of symmetry or something that has two sides or halves which are the same or very close in size, shape, and position.
The branch of economics concerned with the application of mathematical economics to economic data by the use of statistical methods.
Measurement and transmission of vital information; biotelemetry.
An instrument for measuring visual acuteness of the perception of form.
Measurement of visual perceptions.
1. An electrical device for measuring angles of joints and their ranges of motions.
2. An instrument used to measure positions of flexion (the bending of an arm, leg, or other joint) and the extension of a hinge joint.
1. An assessment of the integrity of the sense of taste by using graded electrical stimuli that is applied to the lingual mucosa or tongue.
2. A measurement which tests the degree of the sense of taste by applying a direct electrical current to various points on the tongue.

An anode or electrode to which a major flow of electrons takes place and that is applied to different points on the protruded tongue and the electric current necessary to produce an acid taste is measured and recorded.

1. An apparatus used to gauge or to measure the pressure of gases or liquids which uses an electric signal as the indicator.
2. An electronic instrument that is used to gauge the pressure of liquids or gases or which is used for measuring the pressure of gases or liquids by electronic methods.
1. A sensitive device for measuring extremely low voltages by means of the forces of attraction and repulsion between charged bodies on plates or wires.
2. An instrument for detecting or determining the magnitude of a potential difference or charge by the electrostatic forces between charged bodies.
3. A fundamental instrument in which potential is measured by the attraction between two oppositely charged disks.
4. An instrument for measuring the quantity or intensity of electricity; also, sometimes, and less properly, applied to an instrument that indicates the presence of electricity; also called an electroscope.
5. An instrument used to determine fluctuations in electrostatic potential difference between charged electrodes due to radiation.
1. An electrical record of a locomotive regarding its speed and the number and duration of its stops.
2. In medicine, an instrument which can record changes in the electrical potentials of uterine muscles.
electrophotometer, photoelectric colorimeter
