This paper describes two humanoid robots developed in the Humanoid Robotics Institute, Waseda University. Hadaly-2 is intended to realize information interaction with humans by integrating environmental recognition with vision, conversation capability (voice recognition, voice synthesis), and gesture behaviors. It also possesses physical interaction(More)
A 64-year-old man took levofloxacin 100 mg three times a day from the day before trans-rectal prostate needle biopsy. He suddenly fell into septic shock about 12 hours after the biopsy. We performed polymyxin B-immobilized fiber-direct hemoperfusion treatment at our intensive care unit. The circle dynamics was stable after five days of observation, and he(More)
By the application of a new concept of activity, which is an extension of excitability in physiology, it was possible to establish the activity cycle in relation to the interstimulus interval as an extension of excitability cycle. It was proved also that the response area and audiogram in the auditory system, as well as the spectral response curve in the(More)
The present study investigated whether young children are better at representing others’ false beliefs in communicative situations than in standard false belief tasks. Younger (3.7–4.6 year-olds, n = 18), middle-aged (4.7–5.6 year-olds, n = 20), and older children (5.7–6.6 year-olds, n = 20) completed both standard false belief and communicative tasks(More)
Laws of excitability, activity and interactivity were established in their basic forms concerning not only the slope and time factors of an effective stimulus to a physiological system, but also concerning relative differences in the stimulus, moving stimulus, reciprocal inhibition, etc., and further the basis was established for the unification of these(More)
