Eye contact is an effective means of controlling human communication, such as in starting communication. It seems that we can make eye contact if we simply look at each other. However, this alone does not establish eye contact. Both parties also need to be aware of being watched by the other. We proposed an eye-contact method between humans and robots(More)
Eye contact is an effective means of controlling communication for humans, such as starting communication. It seems that we can make eye contact if we look at each other. However, this alone cannot complete eye contact. In addition, we need to be aware of being looked by each other. We propose a method of active eye contact for human-robot communication(More)
SUMMARY Eye contact is an effective means of controlling human communication, such as in starting communication. It seems that we can make eye contact if we simply look at each other. However, this alone does not establish eye contact. Both parties also need to be aware of being watched by the other. We propose a method of bidirectional eye contact(More)

A total of 202 cultures of yeasts were isolated and characterized from king crab and Dungeness crab meat. A yeastlike organism, resembling Aureobasidium pullulans, and 15 different species distributed among the genera Rhodotorula, Cryptococcus, Torulopsis, Candida, and Trichosporon were represented. Nine of the species grew at 5 C or lower. Although two of(More)
A novel compound termed YT-18 (2,3-dihydro-2,4,6,7-tetramethyl-2-[(4-phenyl-1-piperazinyl) methyl]-5-benzofuranamine) selectively inhibited 5-lipoxygenases of porcine leukocytes (IC50 value, 7.5 microM), human leukocytes (1.5 microM), and rat basophilic leukemia cells (14 microM), which are responsible for bioactive leukotriene synthesis. In contrast, the(More)
