Endothelial progenitor cells (EPCs) are mobilized from bone marrow to peripheral blood and contribute to angiogenesis in tissues. In the process, EPCs are exposed to the shear stress generated by blood flow and tissue fluid flow. Our previous study showed that shear stress promotes differentiation of EPCs into mature endothelial cells. In this study, we(More)
Space is represented by integrating egocentric and allocentric reference frames; however, little is known about the role of these independent reference frames in number representation. Using patients with unilateral pathologic pain in one limb, we investigated whether number representation is closely linked to space representation by evaluating visual(More)

Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is a developmental disorder associated with social difficulties, and it is thus worth examining whether individuals with ASD maintain typical or atypical degrees of social distance.

This study's aim was to build a web service that automatically collects and tests hypotheses for possible allergy risks. We crowdsourced for unknown allergy risks, and obtained odds ratios. By using the collected hypotheses, we built a web service that estimates allergy risks from a questionnaire (consisting of 10 questions that we gathered from the(More)
BACKGROUND Few quantitative studies have been conducted on the relationship between society and its languages. Individuals with autistic spectrum disorder (ASD) are known to experience social hardships, and a wide range of clinical information about their quality of life has been provided through numerous narrative analyses. However, the narratives of ASD(More)
In order to help people suffering from autism spectrum disorder (ASD), assistance systems have been developed with a focus on enabling ASD people to adapt to activities of daily living (e.g., augmentative and alternative communication systems [1]). However, if we reverse our viewpoint, we can develop a new concept for the assistance system: letting normal(More)
