Bite marks played a significant role in the conviction of serial killer Ted Bundy. The tissue featured in the first image was removed from one of his victims of the Florida State University sorority house. It was not removed with a retaining ring, and, as a result, there is obvious tissue distortion. Although the marks on the breast are human bite marks, they are of little or no evidentiary value for comparison or profile purposes.

A bite mark on the buttocks of this victim as show on the second photograph was valuable in the development of a forensic dental profile. Probable cause for obtaining a search warrant to examine Ted Bundy’s teeth was the direct result of bite mark analysis and the discovery of chipped upper teeth and crooked lower teeth.

A photograph of Ted Bundy at a court hearing was compared with the bite patterns. There was a similarity between the bite pattern and the smiling photograph of Mr. Bundy. After the court order was obtained, photographs were taken of Ted Bundy’s teeth that clearly showed chips and broken areas of the upper teeth and crowded lower teeth. Furthermore, there was a strong correlation between the position of his two lover central incisors, lateral incisors, and cuspids and the bite pattern.

If one looks closely at the second image, the injury to the buttock is obviously a double bite, as double lower arch bite marks are clearly visable. The three scrape marks or drag patterns left by the upper teeth were consistant in size and spacing to the three chipped areas on the two central incisors of Ted Bundy. Ted Bundy was convicted of first-degree murder of the two Chi Omega sorority sisters and received the death sentence.

The fifth image is a side-by-side comparison of the same bite mark on a victim, taken 5 days apart. The bite mark on the left represents the appearance of the wound within 24 hours of infliction. The bite mark photograph on the right was taken 5 days after that on the left. This image demonstrates that the upper left anterior central tooth is protruded.

A sensational breakthrough: the first bionic hand that can feel
The first bionic hand that allows an amputee to feel what they are touching will be transplanted later this year in a pioneering operation that could introduce a new generation of artificial limbs with sensory perception.
The patient is an unnamed man in his 20s living in Rome who lost the lower part of his arm following an accident, said Silvestro Micera of the Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne in Switzerland.
The wiring of his new bionic hand will be connected to the patient’s nervous system with the hope that the man will be able to control the movements of the hand as well as receiving touch signals from the hand’s skin sensors.
Dr Micera said that the hand will be attached directly to the patient’s nervous system via electrodes clipped onto two of the arm’s main nerves, the median and the ulnar nerves.
This should allow the man to control the hand by his thoughts, as well as receiving sensory signals to his brain from the hand’s sensors. It will effectively provide a fast, bidirectional flow of information between the man’s nervous system and the prosthetic hand.
“This is real progress, real hope for amputees. It will be the first prosthetic that will provide real-time sensory feedback for grasping,” Dr Micera said.
“It is clear that the more sensory feeling an amputee has, the more likely you will get full acceptance of that limb,” he told the American Association for the Advancement of Science meeting in Boston.
“We could be on the cusp of providing new and more effective clinical solutions to amputees in the next year,” he said.

DO YOU PEOPLE EVEN REALIZE HOW AWESOME THIS IS???
TO DO THIS MEANS WE CAN FINALLY STITCH AXONS (LONG PART OF NEURON OR NERVE CELL THAT TRANSPORTS SIGNALS FROM JUNCTIONS BACK TO THE BRAIN) BACK TOGETHER
DO YOU EVEN UNDERSTAND HOW IMPOSSIBLE THAT WAS? TO ALIGN THE DAMAGED AXONS BACK TOGETHER WAS IMPOSSIBLE 
WITH THIS BREAK THROUGH YOU COULD EVENTUALLY WORK UP TO GIVING THE ABILITY TO WALK AND MOVE AGAIN TO THOSE WHO CUT THEIR SPINAL CORD IN AN ACCIDENT THIS IS BEAUTIFUL
THIS. IS. AMAZING.
