The automatic extraction and recognition of news captions and annotations can be of great help locating topics of interest in digital news video libraries. To achieve this goal, we present a technique, called Video OCR (Optical Character Reader), which detects, extracts , and reads text areas in digital video data. In this paper, we address problems,(More)
In this paper, we describe the Toshiba event detection system for TRECVID surveillance event detection task [1] that detects three TRECVID required events (E05:PersonRuns, E19:ElevatorNoEntry, and E20:OpposingFlow). Our system (" Toshiba_1 p-cohog_1 ") consists of four components: (1) robust change detection based on the combination of pixel intensity(More)
Fyn-mediated tyrosine phosphorylation of N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptor subunits has been implicated in various brain functions, including ethanol tolerance, learning, and seizure susceptibility. In this study, we explored the role of Fyn in haloperidol-induced catalepsy, an animal model of the extrapyramidal side effects of antipsychotics.(More)
The aim of this study is to obtain a quantitative anatomical description of the hyoid bone and mandible using three-dimensional computed tomography. Hyoid bones were obtained from a total of 101 cadavers varying in age from 67 to 102 years. The percentage of symmetrical U-type and asymmetrical-type hyoid bones was low compared with symmetrical V type (14.9,(More)
Objective Little is known about the relationship between body composition indicators, including body mass index (BMI), fat mass index (FMI) and lean BMI (LBMI), and adverse outcomes after percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) in Asian populations. The aim of this study was to clarify this relationship. Methods The SHINANO registry is a prospective,(More)
We present the case of a 40-year-old man with previously treated thymic carcinoma, complaining of gradually worsening back pain. Computed tomography scans of the chest showed multiple pleural disseminated nodules with a pleural effusion in the right thorax. The patient was treated with carboplatin on day 1 plus nab-paclitaxel on day 1 and 8 in cycles(More)
A 74-year-old man was referred to our hospital because of persistent cough. A chest radiograph revealed an elevation of the right diaphragm. Computed tomography (CT) images revealed a small nodule localized on the right mediastinum. Five months later, the nodule had grown and was diagnosed as malignant pleural mesothelioma (MPM) by a CT-guided needle(More)
This paper presents a method to automatically align a pose of 3D shape data to fit another shape data taken from different viewpoints. One of the difficult issues is to handle shape data which have surface information in different sides due to the difference in viewpoints, and to deal with objects in different scale. We detect local feature points on the(More)
Fyn-tyrosine-kinase-deficient mice exhibit increased fearfulness. To elucidate the neural mechanisms of their emotional defects, we compared fyn(-/-) and fyn(+/-) mice by behavioral analysis of conditioned fear and by functional neuroanatomical analysis of the distribution of highly responsive neurons associated with conditioned fear. The mice were exposed(More)
