Near infrared (NIR) spectroscopy, a non-invasive optical method for monitoring hemodynamics, was applied to record evoked auditory response of the human brain. Our newly developed system detected the amount of oxygenated and deoxygenated hemoglobin in the area of the local brain located beneath the probes. In the study, we used magnetoencephalography (MEG)(More)
The intensity of Galactic cosmic rays is nearly isotropic because of the influence of magnetic fields in the Milky Way. Here, we present two-dimensional high-precision anisotropy measurement for energies from a few to several hundred teraelectronvolts (TeV), using the large data sample of the Tibet Air Shower Arrays. Besides revealing finer details of the(More)
Since 1996, a hybrid experiment consisting of the emulsion chamber and burst detector array and the Tibet-II air-shower array has been operated at Yangbajing (4300 m above sea level, 606 g/cm 2) in Tibet. This experiment can detect air-shower cores, called as burst events, accompanied by air showers in excess of about 100 TeV. We observed about 4300 burst(More)
We will report the observations of TeV gamma ray flares from Markarian 501 using Telescope Array Prototype. The observation were carried out continuously from the end of March to the end of July in 1997. The energy spectrum, and the time variation of the gamma ray intensities are shown. The intensity has been changed by the order of magnitude in this period(More)
In this paper, we deal with no-arbitrage pricing problems of a chooser flexible cap (floor) written on an underlying LIBOR. The chooser flexible cap (floor) allows a right for a buyer to exercise a limited and predetermined number of the interim period caplets (floorlets) in a multiple-period cap (floor) agreement. Assuming a common diffusion short rate(More)
The neuroprotective functions of glia cells in the presence of excessive amounts of extracellular glutamate (Glu) were examined using glia-rich and glia-poor cultured cerebellar granule cells that contained the same number of neurons. In order to focus on the metabolic enzyme glutamine synthetase (GS) and the uptake system in glia cells, selective(More)
The locomotor activities induced by methamphetamine (MAP: 1 mg/kg) following the microinjection of either GABA or three synthesized GABA-peptides (PLG, PSLG, PDSLG) into the rat caudate putamen or the amygdala were measured by using behavioral analysis. The ip administration of MAP induced hyperactivities in a time-dependent manner, and the maximum activity(More)
The inhibitory effects of calcium antagonists on high-potassium or glutamate (Glu) enhanced intracellular calcium ion ([Ca2+]i) levels were studied in cultured cerebellar granule cells. Dosages between 0.5 and 10 microM of flunarizine, nicardipine, SM6586 and SM12565 reduced the rise in [Ca2+]i induced by 50 mM KCl in a dose-dependent manner, although(More)
