A simple and rapid method for analysis of fish blood cells is presented. Carp (Cyprinus carpio) blood was diluted 200 times with Hanks' solution containing 1 microg/ml of DiOC6(3) which is a fluorescent, lipophilic dye. After staining for 10 min, the blood cells were measured by a flow cytometer (FACS). Several blood cell populations were identified by(More)
AIM Antenatal stress, maturation and other foetal conditions affect the postnatal cardiovascular function. Atrial- (ANP) and brain-type natriuretic peptide (BNP) play important roles in regulating extracellular fluid volume and blood pressure, which may surrogate the foetal cardiovascular condition. The aim of this study was to investigate the dependence of(More)
OBJECTIVES The measurement of language development in hearing-impaired children is an important step in assessing the appropriateness of an intervention. We proposed a set of language tests (the Assessment Package for Language Development in Japanese Hearing-Impaired Children [ALADJIN]) to evaluate the development of practical communication skills. This(More)
Specific language impairment (SLI) has been said to be a heterogeneous disorder of language acquisition in children who do not have any other apparent cognitive, social, or neurological deficits that can account for their impairment. Van der Lely and Stollwerck (1996) have identified a subgroup of SLI subjects who have a primary grammatical impairment. They(More)
Some overlap has been suggested among the subtypes of autism spectrum disorder (ASD) in children. The Japanese version of the Children's Communication Checklist-2 (CCC-2) is a useful measure for identifying profiles in relation to communication impairments in children with ASD. The aim of this study was to investigate whether the CCC-2 could identify(More)
Open source software (OSS)-based product development takes advantage of feature updates and bug fixes from OSS communities. However, when we customize the OSS and do not return the changes back to the OSS communities, our customization and the updates sometimes conflict. That makes it difficult to apply forthcoming OSS updates since we need to grasp the(More)
The Japanese version of the Children's Communication Checklist-2 (CCC-2) was rated by caregivers in a large national population sample of 22,871 children aged 3-15 years. The General Communication Composite (GCC) of the CCC-2 exhibited a distribution with a single-factor structure. The GCC distribution between autism spectrum disorders (ASD) and language(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the dental arch relationships of Japanese children with complete unilateral cleft lip and palate (UCLP) and to examine the 5-year-olds' index for its validity. DESIGN Retrospective study and comparison with previous reports. SUBJECTS One hundred thirty-six children with complete UCLP who received primary cheiloplasty and(More)
In this paper, we propose a ubiquitous augmented reality system that expands projected augmentations in wide area by using visible light communication and wireless tag. The system consists of wireless tags and a high-speed projector (DMD Discovery 3000), operating in 8kHz, attached on mobility platform. The projector transmits structured light patterns that(More)
OBJECTIVE This study investigates the development of theory of mind (ToM) in Japanese children with hearing loss (HL) and its relationship with language abilities using the data of a large sample size. METHODS Participants were 369 children with HL, ranging from 4 to 12 years of age. The mean hearing level of the better ear was 100.7 dB. A "change in(More)
