A experiments investigated children's understanding of the mind-body distinction. Children of ages 4 and 5 recognized not only the differential modifiability of changeable versus unchangeable human properties and bodily versus mental properties, but also the independence of activities of bodily organs from a person's intention (Experiment 1). When presented(More)
Three experiments were undertaken to investigate whether young children's segmentation units would change as they learned to read kana letters, which represent morae (subsyllabic rhythmic units). The first 2 experiments used a vocal-motor segmentation task to examine whether 4- to 6-year-olds preferred to segment spoken words containing the special(More)
The brain is a complex information processing system, which can be divided into sub-systems, such as the sensory organs, functional areas in the cortex, and motor control systems. In this sense, most of the mathematical models developed in the field of neuroscience have mainly targeted a specific sub-system. In order to understand the details of the brain(More)
The eyes are continuously fluctuating even during fixation. The fluctuations are called miniature eye movements and consist of microsaccades, drifts, and tremors. It has been revealed that these miniature eye movements aid our vision; they improve the visibility of high spatial frequency components, and prevent retinal adaptation during fixation. Although(More)
For multi-scale and multi-modal neural modeling, it is needed to handle multiple neural models described at different levels seamlessly. Database technology will become more important for these studies, specifically for downloading and handling the neural models seamlessly and effortlessly. To date, conventional neuroinformatics databases have solely been(More)
Microiontophoresis of neuroactive substances during single unit recording in awake behaving animals can significantly advance our understanding of neural circuit function. Here, we present a detailed description of a method for constructing carbon fiber multibarrel electrodes suitable for delivering drugs while simultaneously recording single unit activity(More)
Saccadic eye movements are made about twice a second to shift our gaze either consciously or unconsciously. Brainstem burst neurons trigger each saccade with a bursting activity closely related to saccadic velocity that must be transformed into persistent firing activity to maintain post-saccadic eye position. A conceptual neural mechanism achieving this(More)
