PURPOSE Many forestry workers who use chain-saws suffer from low back pain. Previous studies have reported that low back pain is related to the working postures while felling a tree with a using chain-saws. However, no previous study has investigated trunk muscle activities during work. The purpose of this study was to clarify the relationship between… (More)
— In this paper, a panoramic camera with speaker oriented face extraction function is proposed. For the face extraction, the Genetic Algorithm(GA) is implemented in a Field Prgramble Gate Array(FPGA) chip. Panoramic video signal generator circuit is also implemented in the FPGA for teleconferencing. Experimental results are included.
Ischemia-induced hyperactivity is recognized several hours after both common carotid arteries' occlusion for 5 min in Mongolian gerbils, and it continues for at least 7 days. The aim of this study is to investigate the possible mechanisms of this abnormal behavior. Methamphetamine (MAP) (1 and 3 mg /kg) was administered for 7 days and imipramine (IMP) (5… (More)
