A population survey of seasonality in six representative cities in Japan was conducted using the Japanese version of the Seasonal Pattern Assessment Questionnaire (SPAQ). The questionnaires were given to 951 parents (male: female ratio 1:1 age range 34-59 years) of high-school students. Significant regional differences in seasonal variations of mood, length(More)
Effects of a new lighting stimulation system upon subjective sleep and waking feeling were psychophysiologically examined in 24 healthy students in order to develop a way of obtaining comfortable awakening. The subjects underwent three different experimental conditions: the light stimulation condition, non-light stimulation condition and the control(More)
PURPOSE To clarify the relationship between macrocephaly and neurodevelopmental disorders, as well as identify the prevalence of PTEN mutations in autism spectrum disorders with macrocephaly in Japan. SUBJECTS AND METHODS Diagnostic and other medical information of children with macrocephaly younger than 4years (n=93) were collected for analysis. PTEN(More)
Electromyographic artifacts are sometimes misinterpreted as epileptic discharges in scalp electroencephalograms (EEGs). In addition, the distribution of the epileptic discharges near the earlobe is often distorted by earlobe activation; therefore, these epileptic discharges may not be correctly diagnosed. Here, we report a case of palatal tremor in which(More)
BACKGROUND Attention deficit disorder/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a pathological condition that is not fully understood. In this study, we investigated electroencephalographic (EEG) power differences between children with ADHD and healthy control children. METHODS EEGs were recorded as part of routine medical care received by 80 children with ADHD(More)

The ability to fix the eyes on a target, visual fixation, is important for the maintenance of equilibrium. The visual suppression (VS) test is one method of measuring the function of visual fixation. The test records caloric nystagmus by electrooculography, and the maximum slow phase velocity of caloric nystagmus in darkness is compared with the slow phase(More)
