We show that the mouse macrophage-restricted F4/80 protein is not required for the development and distribution of tissue macrophages but is involved in the generation of antigen-specific efferent regulatory T (T reg) cells that suppress antigen-specific immunity. In the in vivo anterior chamber (a.c.)-associated immune deviation (ACAID) model of peripheral(More)
— In this paper, to support antigravity muscles during stance phase more strongly, we propose a new wearable antigravity muscles support system, which supports antigravity muscles around the knee and hip joint. In this system, a posture-based control algorithm for the device without using biological signals is implemented to the wearable antigravity muscles(More)
Injection of the fluorescent tracers, Evans blue (EB) and Primulin (Pr), or EB and 4',6-diamino-2-phenylindol dihydrochloride (DAPI), respectively, into the dorsal nucleus of the lateral geniculate body and the superior colliculus on the ipsilateral side have demonstrated the existence of retinal ganglion cells having uncrossed bifurcating axons in the(More)
—This paper considers bifurcation phenomena in a simplified hysteresis neural network. The network consists of three cells and has three control parameters. We have discovered that the simple system exhibits various attractors: stable equilibria, periodic orbits, and chaos. Since the system is piecewise linear, the return map and Lyapunov exponents are(More)
We report a rare case of large cell neuroendocrine carcinoma (LCNEC) of the lung with cancer-associated retinopathy (CAR). To our knowledge, only two cases of LCNEC with CAR have been reported, one in 1995 and another in 2013. CAR, typically associated with small cell lung cancer (SCLC), is one of the paraneoplastic syndromes with deterioration of visual(More)
