This paper proposes an intelligent room that is free of operator's position based on gesture recognition technologies. Intention and position of an operator are recognized by detecting hand waving, and pan-tilt cameras are zoomed and focused on the operator. The hand region is extracted using color information, and direction or number of fingers and motion(More)
Background data during the gestation period were obtained from 128 Wistar Hannover GALAS rats and 26 Crl:CD(SD) pregnant rats in the control groups of our previous toxicity studies. The body weights of dams in the Wistar Hannover GALAS rats were significantly lower throughout the gestation period than those in the Crl:CD(SD) rats. In contrast, the(More)
We examined the sequential histopathological changes in the placentas from rats exposed to chlorpromazine. Chlorpromazine was intraperitoneally administered on GD 14 at 50 and 100 mg/kg and the placentas were sampled on GDs 14.5, 15, 17 and 21. The incidence of dams with complete fetal resorption was increased from GD 17 up to 20% at 50 mg/kg and 44.4% at(More)
This paper proposes a method of detecting waving hands from images as a method for man-machine interface. FFT is applied to time series of intensity images. The images are converted to low-resolution ones, and FFT is applied to each pixel of the low-resolution images. The proposed method is robust to lighting condition and individual difference of skin(More)
Wavy medakas are medakas that exhibit spinal curvature characterized by dorsoventrally curved vertebrae. We found a spontaneous wavy medaka in our experimental stock and subjected it to a histopathological examination. Macroscopically, the wavy medaka's spine formed an M shape, and its vertebrae displayed a dorsoventral curvature that started at the third(More)
