Cross-modal integration and plastic changes revealed by lip movement, random-dot motion and sign languages in the hearing and deaf.
Sign language activates the auditory cortex of deaf subjects, which is evidence of cross-modal plasticity. Lip-reading (visual phonetics), which involves audio-visual integration, activates theExpand

Age-dependent plasticity in the superior temporal sulcus in deaf humans: a functional MRI study
BackgroundSign-language comprehension activates the auditory cortex in deaf subjects. It is not known whether this functional plasticity in the temporal cortex is age dependent. We conductedExpand

The neural cascade of olfactory processing: A combined fMRI–EEG study
Olfaction is dependent on respiration for the delivery of odorants to the nasal cavity. Taking advantage of the time-locked nature of inspiration and olfactory processing, electroencephalogram dipoleExpand

Development of biomimetic prosthetic hand controlled by electromyogram
TLDR
The purpose of this study was to develop a new type of myoelectrically-controlled biomimetic prosthetic hand (biomimetic Kobe Hand) which had almost the same dynamics as those of the neuromuscular control system of finger muscles, in particular, including mechanical properties of the muscle and stretch reflex.
