The ultimate location of testicular dislocation is related to the mechanism of injury, the direction and intensity of the impact, the presence of anatomic abnormalities, and a brisk contraction of the cremaster muscle
at the moment of trauma, associated with a secondary cremaster muscle
spasm contraction [6, 9, 13,14].
As recently reported, we used the cremaster muscle
models of trauma- and TNF[alpha]-induced inflammation .
during, and after electrical stimulation of the cremaster muscle
Animals were returned to their cages for 3.5 h and the right cremaster muscle
was then prepared for intravital microscopy.
The artist has often explained his master scheme, for example on German television recently: The cremaster muscle
controls the position of the testicles, which varies with temperature.
Professor Sidor's letter does not point out just any error; the cremaster muscle
is quite simply the master metaphor, the dominant trope, the guiding figure of Barney's mature work.
Therefore, we prepared cremaster muscle
of mice in order to observe the changes in vascular integrity in acute inflammatory conditions.
Genitofemoral nerve injury occurs during isolation of the spermatic cord and dissection of cremaster muscle
The mouse cremaster muscle
preparation was used to study neutrophil behaviour in microcirculation and tissue as described previously [24-26].
I have seen two of the Cremaster films (Cremaster 4 and Cremaster 5), and each of them ends with images that strongly suggest an androgyny that would seem to be at odds with Hodge's all-important "mythic descent of Man's Testicles." Barney's concerns are less an assertion of masculinity than a questioning of those dubious cultural constructs "masculine" and "feminine." The appearance of the cremaster muscle
occurs at about the seventh week of fetal development; for almost a quarter of its life in the womb, the fetus is undifferentiated; and, as Hodge rightly points out, this issue of sexual differentiation is crucial to Barney.
Barney makes no secret that the series' raw subject matter is the ascending and descending of the testicles, a process controlled by the cremaster muscle
. As prosaic as it seems, this tension between up and down, between pregenital versus genital physicality, is the initial biological register of sexual difference.
