The mechanism of corneal wound healing has not been clarified yet. However, evidence has accumulated that various kinds of growth factor such as epidermal growth factor (EGF), fibroblast growth factor (FGF), transforming growth factor (TGF), keratinocyte growth factor (KGF), hepatocyte growth factor (HGF), platelet-derived growth factor (PDGF) and(More)
We report three cases of arteriovenous malformation (AVM) of the medial temporal lobe and the surgical approaches used. The AVM was fed by the anterior choroidal artery (AChA) in two cases (Cases 1 and 2) and by the posterior cerebral artery in one (Case 3). The trans-Sylvian approach was first used for cerebrospinal fluid aspiration to retract the brain in(More)
This 74-year-old female suddenly complained of severe headache, nausea, vomiting and dizziness on June 19, 1981. She was brought to nearby hospital. During the following six days, the state of consciousness gradually worsened and left-sided hemiparesis and convulsion attack arose and she was admitted to our clinic on June 25, 1981. Cerebral angiograms(More)
We propose a tactile sensor based on computer vision that measures a dense traction field, or a distribution of 3D force vectors over a 2D surface, which humans also effectively sense through a dense array of mechanoreceptors in the skin. The proposed "GelForce" tactile sensor has an elegant and organic design and can compute large and structurally rich(More)
It is believed that the use of haptic sensors to measure the magnitude, direction, and distribution of a force will enable a robotic hand to perform dexterous operations. Therefore, we develop a new type of finger-shaped haptic sensor using GelForce technology. GelForce is a vision-based sensor that can be used to measure the distribution of force vectors,(More)
— Humans can perceive not only the magnitude but also the direction of force applied on the fingertip. When we grasp an object, the weight of it is felt through force that is parallel to the skin of the fingertip, which is how the object can be grasped without slipping. Focusing on this point, we have developed a tactile sensor that can measure a(More)
There have been reports that superior cervical ganglionectomy (SCG) is effective as a treatment for cerebral vasospasm following subarachnoid haemorrhage (SAH). On the other hand, denervation supersensitivity is supposed to play an important role in vasospasm. The two accounts contradict each other. To investigate this problem, various examinations were(More)
