Functional organization of human cerebral hemispheres is asymmetrically specialized, most typically along a verbal/nonverbal axis. In this event-related functional MRI study, we report another example of the asymmetrical specialization. Set-shifting paradigms derived from the Wisconsin card sorting test were used, where subjects update one behavior to(More)
Functional brain organization of macaque monkeys and humans was directly compared by functional magnetic resonance imaging. Subjects of both species performed a modified Wisconsin Card Sorting Test that required behavioral flexibility in the form of cognitive set shifting. Equivalent visual stimuli and task sequence were used for the two species. We found(More)
Rapid presentation event-related functional magnetic resonance imaging was applied to macaque monkeys performing a symmetrically rewarded go/no-go task, to investigate neural correlate of response inhibition. Sensorimotor activation related to the task performance was observed predominantly in the hemisphere contralateral to the response forelimb.(More)
Familial amyloidosis of the Finnish type (FAF) is an autosomal dominant form of systematic amyloidosis characterized by lattice corneal dystrophy, cranial neuropathy, and cutis laxa. Although FAF has been frequently found in the Finnish population, FAF is a considerably rare disorder in other regions. In this study, we examined the clinical characteristics(More)
KEI-Time Traveler is a system using commercially available phones equipped with GPS. It enables students to do fieldwork with a visit to a past environment from the corresponding location in the present world. Students experienced such fieldwork to visit the site of a landslide disaster in 1938. We evaluated the system and found that KEI-Time Traveler(More)
