This work presents a new adaptive node-cluster algorithm for fast multipole method. In the algorithm, we use rectangular boxes instead of cubes, subdivide a box based on its shape, and tighten the child boxes at each subdivision step. More importantly, we determine the number of expansion terms in multipole to local translations according to the distance(More)
To estimate the extent of use of over-the-counter (OTC) drugs and health food, we administered a questionnaire to the parents of children in a nursery school and to elderly people in a daycare center in Fukuyama city. The aim of the questionnaire was to determine the percentage of children and elderly people who use OTC drugs and health food, the purpose of(More)
Ubiquitous computing is targeted at services and applications of computer and communication technologies in the real world. This research, as a part of UbicKids Project, is focused on designing a context-aware system that dynamically detects the possible dangerous situations in the routes where kids go to and return from schools, and provides prompt advices(More)
Seizure detection using intracranial electroencephalography (iEEG) contributes to improved treatment of patients with refractory epilepsy. For that purpose, a feature of iEEG to characterize the ictal state with high specificity and sensitivity is necessary. We evaluated the use of phase-amplitude coupling (PAC) of iEEG signals over a period of 24 h to(More)
Studies on brain-machine interface techniques have shown that electrocorticography (ECoG) is an effective modality for predicting limb trajectories and muscle activity in humans. Motor control studies have also identified distributions of "extrinsic-like" and "intrinsic-like" neurons in the premotor (PM) and primary motor (M1) cortices. Here, we(More)
This paper presents the first coupling application of the dual reciprocity BEM (DRBEM) and dynamic programming filter to inverse elastodynamic problem. The DRBEM is the only BEM method, which does not require domain discretization for general linear and nonlinear dynamic problems. Since the size of numerical discretization system has a great effect on the(More)
We present a 9-year-old girl with an endodermal cyst of the oculomotor nerve in the left interpeduncular cistern, who had a history of left ptosis. We suggest that a cyst localized at the exit of the oculomotor nerve from the midbrain associated with oculomotor palsy may suggest this rare entity.
