OBJECTIVES To assess the dynamics of the vertical semicircular canal (VSCC)-ocular reflex in normal subjects and then to compare their gain in VSCC-ocular reflex with that of patients with benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV). MATERIAL AND METHODS Subjects were sinusoidally rotated around the earth-vertical axis with their head tilted 60 degrees(More)
The measurement of eye movements in three dimensions is an important tool to investigate the human vestibular and oculomotor system. The primary methods for three dimensional eye movement measurement are the scleral search coil system (SSCS) and video-oculography (VOG). In the present study, we compare the accuracy of VOG with that of SSCS using an(More)
OBJECTIVE Two types of direction-changing positional nystagmus, the geotropic and apogeotropic variants, are observed in patients with the horizontal semicircular canal (HSCC) type of benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (H-BPPV). In this study, we assessed the dynamics of the vestibulo-ocular reflex (VOR) of the HSCC in patients with H-BPPV. MATERIAL AND(More)
We have investigated the characteristics of THz emissions from p/n junctions with metallic lines under non-bias conditions. The waveforms, spectra, and polarizations depend on the length and shape of the lines. This indicates that the transient photocurrents from p/n junctions flow into the metallic lines that emit THz waves and act as an antenna. We have(More)
SUMMARY We have proposed and successfully demonstrated a two step method for localizing defects on an LSI chip. The first step is the same as a conventional laser-SQUID (L-SQUID) imaging where a SQUID and a laser beam are fixed during LSI chip scanning. The second step is a new L-SQUID imaging where a laser beam is stayed at the point, located in the first(More)
