We present a novel method based on joint tensor diagonalization for selecting or weighting electroencephalogram (EEG) data to estimate the covariance matrices to accurately find common spatial pattern (CSP). CSP and its variants need a pair of covariance matrices of two different tasks, which are obtained as the average over trials. This trial average can(More)
Rejecting or selecting data from multiple trials of electroencephalography (EEG) recordings is crucial. We propose a sparsity-aware method to data selection from a set of multiple EEG recordings during motor-imagery tasks, aiming at brain machine interfaces (BMIs). Instead of empirical averaging over sample covariance matrices for multiple trials including(More)
Dark-adapted rods have a suppressive effect on cone response (suppressive rod-cone interaction: SRCI). This phenomenon has been applied to analyze the pathological mechanism of congenital stationary night blindness (CSNB), but the results have been discrepant among the investigators. Alexander et al reported that 2 individuals with CSNB exhibited a normal(More)
Common Spatial Pattern (CSP) methods are widely used to extract the brain activity for brain machine interfacing (BMI) based on electroencephalogram (EEG). For each mental task, CSP methods estimate a covariance matrix of EEG signals and adopt the uniform average of the sample covariance matrices over trials. However, the uniform average is sensitive to(More)
The Θ(+) pentaquark baryon was searched for via the π(-)p→K(-)X reaction with a missing mass resolution of 1.4 MeV/c(2) (FWHM) at the Japan Proton Accelerator Research Complex (J-PARC). π(-) meson beams were incident on the liquid hydrogen target with a beam momentum of 1.92 GeV/c. No peak structure corresponding to the Θ(+) mass was observed. The upper(More)
PURPOSE To determine the psychophysical differences between two types of retinitis pigmentosa (RP) patients with different rod sensitivities. METHODS Thirty-five RP patients with a visual acuity of > or =0.7 or better were classified by cone-rod perimetry into type 1, those with undetectable rod sensitivity, and type 2, those with measurable rod(More)
Reactions of azodicarboxylates and nitrosobenzene derivatives with acyloxyketenes generated from dehydrochlorination of alpha-acyloxyarylacetyl chlorides were carried out to give triacylbenzamidine and N-arylimide derivatives, respectively, in good yields. The same compounds were obtained from the reaction with mesoionic 1,3-dioxolium-4-olates generated by(More)
Fast ring opening of mesoionic 1,3-dioxolium-4-olates, generated by Rh(2)(OAc)(4)-catalyzed decomposition of phenyldiazoacetic anhydride derivatives, to acyloxyphenylketenes was demonstrated by trapping the ketenes with several ketenophiles. Reactions of phenyldiazoacetic anhydride derivatives with several ketenophiles such as dihydrofuran, carbodiimides,(More)
