The rapid spread of technological innovations like mobile data services (MDS) has made mobile computing a fact of everyday life for many people. Therefore, we need to understand the contribution of mobile computing to overall quality of life (QoL). Employing the satisfaction hierarchy model and bottom-up spillover theory, this study proposes a theoretical(More)
In this paper, we describe a user study evaluating the usability of an augmented reality (AR) multimodal interface (MMI). We have developed an AR MMI that combines free-hand gesture and speech input in a natural way using a multimodal fusion architecture. We describe the system architecture and present a study exploring the usability of the AR MMI compared(More)
In this paper, we propose ARPushPush, a novel augmented reality game for indoor environment, which uses vision-based tracking and user's hand gestures. The systems using trackers are too expensive and the calibration between a camera and a tracker, which is indispensable for vision-based interaction, is not easy. The proposed system only uses two cameras(More)
Endogenous neural stem/progenitor cells (eNSPCs) proliferate and differentiate into neurons and glial cells after spinal cord injury (SCI). We have previously shown that melatonin (MT) plus exercise (Ex) had a synergistic effect on functional recovery after SCI. Thus, we hypothesized that combined therapy including melatonin and exercise might exert a(More)
MUSCLE ATROPHY IS THE RESULT OF TWO OPPOSING CONDITIONS THAT CAN BE FOUND IN PATHOLOGICAL OR DISEASED MUSCLES: an imbalance in protein synthesis and degradation mechanisms. Thus, we investigated whether exogenous melatonin could regulate muscle components in stroke-induced muscle atrophy in rats. Comparing muscle phenotypes, we found that long-term(More)
Depression frequently accompanies in Parkinson's disease (PD). Previous research suggested that dopamine (DA) and serotonin systems are closely linked with depression in PD. However, comprehensive studies about the relationship between these two neurotransmitter systems are limited. Therefore, the purpose of this study is to evaluate the effect of(More)
