Electroencephalogram (EEG) is easily contaminated by unwanted physiological artifacts, among which electrooculogram (EOG) artifacts due to eye blinking are known to be most dominant. The eye blink artifacts are reported to affect theta and alpha rhythms of frontal EEG signals, and hard to be accurately detected in an unsupervised way due to large individual(More)
Synthesizing handwritten-style characters is an interesting issue in today’s handwriting analysis field. The purpose of this study is to artificially generate training data, foster a deep understanding of human handwriting, and promote the use of the handwritten-style computer fonts, in which the individuality or variety of the synthesized characters is(More)
In this paper, we refer a phenomenon of relatively high error rates against random forgeries in online signature verification. Though human can easily distinguish random forgeries from genuine signatures, the most published research results during last decades have reported high error rates against them, compared to the error rates against skilled(More)
Human eye blinking is cognitively suppressed to minimize loss of visual information for important real-world events. Despite the relationship between eye blinking and cognitive state, the effect of eye blinks on cognition in real-world environments has received limited research attention. In this study, we focused on the temporal pattern of inter-eye blink(More)
Eye blinks are one of the most influential artifact sources in electroencephalogram (EEG) recorded from frontal channels, and thereby detecting and rejecting eye blink artifacts is regarded as an essential procedure for improving the quality of EEG data. In this paper, a novel method to detect eye blink artifacts from a single-channel frontal EEG signal was(More)
This paper introduces a method to remove the unwanted interdependency between vertical and horizontal eye-movement components in electrooculograms (EOGs). EOGs have been widely used to estimate eye movements without a camera in a variety of human-computer interaction (HCI) applications using pairs of electrodes generally attached either above and below the(More)
Oriental ink writing consists of simple strokes intended to convey an artist's deep feelings that makes it to be regarded as a painting. Scratchiness in Japanese Kasure is one of the techniques which can express writer's emotion remarkably in calligraphy. A novel method to express Kasure focused on the change of the energy is proposed in this paper. An(More)
Ictal epileptiform discharges (EDs) are characteristic signal patterns of scalp electroencephalogram (EEG) or intracranial EEG (iEEG) recorded from patients with epilepsy, which assist with the diagnosis and characterization of various types of epilepsy. The EEG signal, however, is often recorded from patients with epilepsy for a long period of time, and(More)
