Human memory systems contain self-monitoring mechanisms for evaluating their progress. People can change their learning strategy on the basis of confidence in their performance at that time. However, it has not been fully understood how the brain is engaged in reliable rating of confidence in past recognition memory performance. We measured the brain(More)
Cortical areas related to the information processing of binocular disparity-defined geometrical features of a surface, such as depth, orientation and shape are examined by functional magnetic resonance imaging while subjects discriminated these three types of geometrical feature in random dot stereograms. Results indicate that disparity-defined information(More)
We examined the temporal characteristics of facial-emotion processing. The stimuli were several morphed images containing seven facial emotions (neutral, anger, happiness, disgust, sadness, surprise, and fear) and ten-graded intensity levels to parametrically control these aspects of facial emotions. Brain activity was recorded with electroencephalography(More)
Two aspects of facial emotions are type and intensity level. This study is an attempt to find the relation of electrode location and latencies of EEG data with specific aspects of facial emotions. A neural network was applied to single trial EEG data for classifying the type and intensity level of facial emotions. Images of two types of facial emotions(More)
Common marmosets have been used extensively in biomedical research and the recent advent of techniques to generate transgenic marmosets has accelerated the use of this model. New methods that efficiently assess the degree of cognitive function in common marmosets are needed in order to establish their suitability as non-human primate models of higher brain(More)
We previously showed that circadian genes clock, bmal1, cry1, cry2, per1, and per2 are expressed and function as maternal mRNA regulating events in the oocytes and preimplantation embryos of mice. Recent evidence indicates however that either or both expression profiles of circadian genes in some tissues, and transcript sequences of circadian genes, differ(More)
The purpose of this paper is to explore the development of a semi-automatic obstacle avoidance control system that combines manual instructions from an operator with the automatic control of a machine. First, in order to obtain operational support, we employed a special joystick system which provided suggestive information to a crane operator via haptic(More)
Detailed information about the characteristics of learning behavior in marmosets is useful for future marmoset research. We trained 42 marmosets in visual discrimination and reversal learning. All marmosets could learn visual discrimination, and all but one could complete reversal learning, though some marmosets failed to touch the visual stimuli and were(More)
