The development of sleep spindles was studied quantitatively in 32 healthy subjects between the ages of 4 and 24 years. The peak frequency distribution of the spindles showed a bimodal pattern with 11.0 to 12.75 Hz in the frontal area and 12.5 to 14.5 Hz in the centroparietal area. The two types of spindle activity showed different courses of maturation.(More)
In this study, we examined the relationship between the frontal midline (Fm) theta rhythm that appears when a healthy subject is engaged in mental tasks and the theta rhythm which appears in the frontal region of healthy subjects during light drowsiness. The samples for this study were obtained from 465 EEGs of healthy Japan Air Self Defense Force(More)
The frequency and power of EEG sleep spindles during sleep stage 2 were analysed in 56 subjects between the age of 3 to 25 years in order to define the maturational pattern of two types of spindles. Although 24 of the 56 subjects were medicated with a single anticonvulsant, there was no remarkable difference in spindle maturation patterns between the(More)
We studied clinical aspects of the "third rhythm," which was first described by Niedermeyer as alpha-like activity of the temporal lobe. By scalp EEG, temporal alpha-like activity was recorded in 15 (0.30%) of 4929 patients over 20 years of age. The temporal alpha-like activity was observed in 5 patients who had clinical and brain imaging findings(More)
Equal amounts of matter and antimatter are predicted to have been produced in the Big Bang, but our observable Universe is clearly matter-dominated. One of the prerequisites for understanding this elimination of antimatter is the nonconservation of charge-parity (CP) symmetry. So far, two types of CP violation have been observed in the neutral K meson(More)
The acoustic reflection technique noninvasively measures airway cross-sectional area vs. distance functions and uses a wave tube with a constant cross-sectional area to separate incidental and reflected waves introduced into the mouth or nostril. The accuracy of estimated cross-sectional areas gets worse in the deeper distances due to the nature of marching(More)
We report an observation of the decay B{0}-->D{*-}tau{+}nu{tau} in a data sample containing 535x10{6} BB pairs collected with the Belle detector at the KEKB asymmetric-energy e{+}e{-} collider. We find a signal with a significance of 5.2sigma and measure the branching fraction B(B{0}-->D{*-}tau{+}nu{tau})=(2.02{-0.37}{+0.40}(stat)+/-0.37(syst))%. This is(More)
The theta rhythm that appears in the frontal midline was studied morphologically and clinically in EEGs performed on 788 patients and 161 normal subjects in their late teens or older. This theta rhythm was classified into 2 types. The Type 1 theta rhythm appeared in short bursts maximally in the Fz lead and spread mainly to the anterior region. It had a(More)
