To date, the nature of the phonological deficit in developmental dyslexia is still debated. We concur with possible impairments in the representations of the universal phonological constraints that universally govern how phonemes co-occur as a source of this deficit. We were interested in whether-and how-dyslexic children have sensitivity to(More)
BACKGROUND Kawasaki Disease (KD) is the most common cause of acquired heart disease in children in developed nations. The KD etiologic agent is unknown but likely to be a ubiquitous microbe that usually causes asymptomatic childhood infection, resulting in KD only in genetically susceptible individuals. KD synthetic antibodies made from prevalent IgA gene(More)
Distributing large data to many nodes, known as a broadcast or a multicast, is an important operation in parallel and distributed computing. Most previous broadcast algorithms explicitly or implicitly try to deliver data to all nodes in the same rate. This assumption is reasonable for homogeneous environments where all nodes have similar receiving(More)
We describe InTrigger, a large-scale distributed computing environment. Our goal is to install over 1000 cores spread out across 20 to 30 sites, and we have already installed 514 cores spread out across 6 sites. We explain how we use technologies such as PXE boot and IPMI in order to manage such a multi-site distributed computing environment while making(More)
BACKGROUND The day-to-day causes of stress are called daily hassles. Daily hassles are correlated with ill health. Biofeedback (BF) is one of the tools used for acquiring stress-coping skills. However, the anatomical correlates of the effects of BF with long training periods remain unclear. In this study, we aimed to investigate this. METHODS PARTICIPANTS(More)
Hopping is effective mobility for exploration robot on small body. To explore small bodies, a mobile robot is required to move to target points. In case of exploration of microgravity environment by a hopping locomotion, hopping trajectories cannot be controlled after a robot hops. To move to target points, hopping direction and velocity should be(More)
Recently, sentence comprehension in languages other than European languages has been investigated from a cross-linguistic perspective. In this paper, we examine whether and how animacy-related semantic information is used for real-time sentence comprehension in a SOV word order language (i.e., Japanese). Twenty-three Japanese native speakers participated in(More)
Performance of mobility is highly dependent on the gravitational environment. Some researchers have proposed novel locomotion methods for extremely small terrestrial bodies like asteroids. Hopping is a possible method under micro-gravity. It is not proved, however, that the proposed method of locomotion is optimum for a given level of gravity. The purpose(More)
