Recent psychophysiological studies revealed that the human endocrine and immune secretion changes its level sensitively according to participants' subjective mental stress and relaxation. In this study, one of the major secretory immune substance, secretory Immunoglobulin A (slgA), is assessed to investigate the human secretory response induced by stressful(More)
This study aims to evaluate student physiological response towards the e-learning materials. The experiments were conducted by introducing two contracting e-learning materials, i.e., the one is characterized as interactive material and the other is non-interactive one. During the experiment physiological sensor, i.e., galvanic skin response (GSR) sensor was(More)
Stress is a risk factor for the onset of mental disorders. Although stress response varies across individuals, the mechanism of individual differences remains unclear. Here, we investigated the neural basis of individual differences in response to mental stress using magnetoencephalography (MEG). Twenty healthy male volunteers completed the Temperament and(More)
Our experience tells us the power of music on human body and mind. Moreover a series of psycho-physiological studies has revealed the positive effects of music on human autonomous nervous system such as alleviating the symptom of the hypertension. However little has been known about the effects of music on human endocrine system, which plays the dominant(More)
Recent studies investigating the impacts on human internal physiological states of the psychological intervention have revealed close relationship and sensitive interaction between human body and mind. For example, various human secretory immune and endocrine substances, such as immunoglobulin A and cortisol, are temporary enhanced by acute stressful tasks(More)
Recent behavioral medicine studies have revealed that the human secretory substances change according to his/her mental states. Especially, those substances transiently get increase (or decrease) against the short-term experimental stressors. However, the relation with rather longer stressor, or daily stressor, has not yet well understood or reported(More)
Providing attractive and interesting e-learning course materials as well as delivering normal lectures in class are important issues in an e-learning society. Knowing about this issue, first, it is essential to investigate student interest about topics and types of elearning courses delivered by measuring the students‘ responses. Thus, this study engages in(More)
