In this study, we proposed an objective estimation of decline of arousal level by analyzing microsaccade rate and pupil fluctuation while subjects were continuously gazing a fixation target. Previous studies show that the slow eye movements (SEMs) could be a candidate for an indicator of decline of arousal. However, it is not sufficient to evaluate(More)
This research aims to grasp and describe what Requirements Engineering(RE) covers, what RE tries to solve and what should RE be in the future. For these purposes, the authors did the literature survey and interviews with the authorities of RE and practitioners. The literature survey targeted over 700 papers and reports published from 2001 to 2005 in major(More)
It is well known that a decline of arousal level causes of poor performance of movements or judgments. Our previous study indicates that microsaccade (MS) rates and pupil fluctuations change before slow eye movements (SEMs) (Honda et al. 2013). However, SEM detection of this study was obscure and insufficient. In this study, we propose a new SEM detection(More)
We investigated the effects of purified eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) on vascular endothelial function and free fatty acid composition in Japanese hyperlipidemic subjects. In subjects with hyperlipidemia (total cholesterol ≥220 mg/dL and/or triglycerides ≥150 mg/dL), lipid profile and forearm blood flow (FBF) during reactive hyperemia were determined before(More)
The purpose of this study is to construct a mathematical model which predicts saliency regions in high-speed egocentric-motion movies, filmed by an embedded camera in a driving vehicle, by reproducing the characteristics of the area MT and MST neurons' receptive fields with consideration of visual adaptation properties. The area MT neurons integrate from(More)
This paper describes EEG analysis of frontal lobe area in arousal maintenance state against sleepiness. Arousal maintenance state is considered different physiological state from the normal sleep onset. To analyze the EEG of frontal area might be important because we believe that the arousal maintenance state against sleepiness causes neuron activities from(More)
Recently, we have developed a new method to analyze brain activity from electroencepharogram (EEG) based on a concept of instantaneous equivalent bandwidths (IEBWs). The essence of the method using the IEBW is to track bandwidths changes of EEG signals. Arousal maintenance state against sleepiness can be considered to be in a different physiological state(More)
This paper proposes a new method for analyzing brain activity from Electroencephalogram (EEG) based on a concept of instantaneous equivalent bandwidths (IEBWs). The essence of the method using the IEBW is to track bandwidths changes of EEG signals. The instantaneous equivalent bandwidths are defined using positive time-frequency distributions. However, it(More)
This paper introduces a method for time-frequency analysis of the phonocardiogram. The proposed method is a modified version of the copula-based technique, which constructs positive time-frequency distributions, so as to be suitable for the analysis of periodically stationary random processes. The copula-based time-frequency distributions have some(More)
