Improving the resolution of artificial sensory organs requires an interface that receives external information from electronic circuits and stimulates appropriate neurons individually in response to that information. The method of electric stimulation in available artificial sensory organs is fairly nonselective; therefore, we developed a method of chemical(More)
It is known that the diffusive permeability of solutes within a thin layer of molecularly imprinted polymer (MIP) may be affected by specific binding of the MIP with its template molecule. This phenomenon, termed the gate effect, shows promise for the development of novel biomimetic sensors. However, the mechanism underlying this effect is still unclear;(More)
The purpose of the present study was to examined the hypothesis that the effects of observational learning of altruistic behavior are related to personal viewpoint, self-efficacy, outcome expectation, and other factors. One hundred and fifty-five fourth-grade school children were assigned randomly to four conditions; distress viewpoint, outcome expectation,(More)
This study was to examine the changes of altruistic responses through observational learning (OL) in elementary school children (4th graders) with the conditions of the different viewpoints and observers' traits. The OL was the symbolic modeling of altruistic behavior by presentation of pictures with narration. All the stories had the same situation, but(More)
The present experiments investigated the changes of altruistic responses through observational learning (OL) in elementary school children (ages 10 and 11) with relation to the characteristics of the modeled events and the observers' traits. The former included certain categories of observed materials and the methods of presentation. The latter included(More)
