Reduction in number of motor units (nMU) and fast fibre ratio (FFR) is associated with disease or atrophy when this is rapid. There is a need to study the effect of nMU and FFR to analyse the association with ageing and disease. This study has developed a mathematical model to investigate the relationship between nMU and FFR on surface electromyogram (sEMG)(More)
Recently, fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) to support high-speed broadband services has been spreading widely and the number of FTTH contracts has passed 20 million in Japan. There are high expectations that optical access networks will become even faster and handle larger amounts of data so that they can be used for services that deliver high-resolution images,(More)
Reduction in the median frequency and the amplitude of surface electromyogram (sEMG) has been observed among older subjects compared with the younger cohort. These changes in sEMG have been associated with a reduction in the number of muscle fibers and a drop in the ratio of type II muscle fibers. However, the details of this association are not known.

Spermine is the end-product in the polyamine biosynthetic pathway, and its excess accumulation induces neuroexcitatory responses and neurotoxicity. The purpose of this study was to elucidate the involvement of transport systems at the brain barriers in the clearance of spermine. In vivo rat spermine elimination from brain parenchyma across the blood-brain(More)
