A 29-year-old female developed diplopia, nasal voice and gait disturbance after an upper respiratory infection. On admission, she presented with bilateral external ophthalmoplegia, slight bilateral facial nerve palsy, dysarthria, dysphagia, cervical and brachial muscle weakness, ataxia and areflexia. She had serum anti-GT1a, anti-GQ1b and(More)
A 35-year-old Japanese man was admitted to our hospital with recurrent meningoencephalitis of unknown etiology. He presented with fever, convulsions and loss of consciousness, which started at age 33. We diagnosed him with neuro-Sweet disease (NSD) based on human leukocyte antigen (HLA) B-54/Cwl positivity and neutrophilic infiltration into the dermis in a(More)
A 35-year-old woman developed recurrent aseptic meningitis three times over a period of 16 months. Each episode followed swelling of her cervical lymph nodes. During the third episode, microscopic findings of biopsied specimens from a cervical lymph node indicated subacute necrotizing lymphadenitis (SNL). While she responded poorly to NSAIDs, steroids(More)
UNLABELLED The architectonic subdivisions of the brain are believed to be functional modules, each processing parts of global functions. Previously, we showed that neurons in different regions operate in different firing regimes in monkeys. It is possible that firing regimes reflect differences in underlying information processing, and consequently the(More)
To investigate the ecological impacts of a widely-used antibiotic agent oxytetracycline (OTC), we prepared an aquatic microcosm consisting of two green algae (Chlorella sp. and Scenedesmus sp.), a blue-green alga (Tolypothrix sp.), a protozoan (Cyclidium sp.), two rotifers (Philodina sp. and Lecane sp.), an aquatic oligochaete (Aeolosoma hemprichi), and(More)
In order to create air conditioning service scenarios adaptive to elderly people, we have conducted detailed situational analyses focusing on bodily feeling information. The practical experimental environment has introduced our constructed indoor interaction system to understand situations based on bodily feeling and to control air conditioners properly.(More)
We constructed a multimodal acoustic environment corpus for interaction design. The intelligent environment consists of a living room interacting with different users and adapting it to their preferences. We developed a speech interaction system to control electrical appliances in the living room, and to record and accumulate real-life interaction data to(More)
