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)
Video OCR is a technique that can greatly help to locate topics of interest in a large digital news video archive via the automatic extraction and reading of captions and annotations. News captions generally provide vital search information about the video b e-ing presented the names of people and places or descriptions of objects. In this paper, two(More)
FPF1070 is an aqueous protein-free solution, which consists of 85% free amino acids and 15% small peptides. Our previous study showed a potent neurotrophic factor-like activity in cultured embryonic cells of dorsal root ganglia. The present study investigated whether FPF1070 regenerated the cholinergic cells in the medial septal nucleus after axonal(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)
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)
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)
Although the degenerative changes with aging of the male urethral rhabdosphincter (URS) have been investigated, its individual morphological variations are still unclear. To provide an anatomical basis for clinical evaluation of the individual URS function in the aged, we investigated the structural differences in the URS of 25 elderly Japanese men using(More)

We report a patient with Isaacs' syndrome associated with myasthenia gravis and pleural recurrence of thymoma, who showed severe limb pain attributed to hyperexcitability of sensory nerves. Myokymia and severe pain were successfully treated with cytoreductive surgery and intraoperative hyperthermic intrathoracic perfusion chemotherapy, but neither(More)
