Bone remodeling, the function affected in osteoporosis, the most common of bone diseases, comprises two phases: bone formation by matrix-producing osteoblasts and bone resorption by osteoclasts. The demonstration that the anorexigenic hormone leptin inhibits bone formation through a hypothalamic relay suggests that other molecules that affect energy(More)
Neuropeptide B/W receptor 1 (NPBWR1) is a G-protein coupled receptor, which was initially reported as an orphan receptor, and whose ligands were identified by this and other groups in 2002 and 2003. To examine the physiological roles of NPBWR1, we examined phenotype of Npbwr1⁻/⁻ mice. When presented with an intruder mouse, Npbwr1⁻/⁻ mice showed impulsive(More)
We have recently isolated three opioid peptides, i.e., Met- and Leu-enkephalins and Met-enkephalin-Arg6-Phe7, from the avian brain. Furthermore, electrophysiological studies have shown that the dominant effect of these enkephalins on preoptic and hypothalamic neurons is an inhibition of neuronal activities in the male Japanese quail. The hypothalamus and(More)

We propose a new top-down eLearning tool for hardware logic design course using the cellular method, where students can keep focusing on their primary interests to achieve complex logic circuits design successfully. At a modern logic design classroom, hardware description languages such as VerilogHDL are mostly used to describe circuits for FPGAs (Field(More)
A time-frequency epsilon-filter (TF epsilon-filter) is an advanced epsilon-filter applied to complex spectra along the time axis. It can reduce most kinds of noise while preserving a signal that varies frequently such as a speech signal. The filter design is simple and it can effectively reduce noise. It is applicable not only to small amplitude stationary(More)
