Analyses of current-source-density (CSD) and multiple unit activity (MUA) in area 17 of the cat were performed to determine the sources of the cortical transcorneal electrically evoked response. Cortical field potential, CSD and MUA profiles were obtained with multi-electrodes. CSD findings include: current sinks (inward cell membrane current) within 20 ms(More)
To analyze the Electrically evoked response (EER) in relation to the central visual pathway, the authors studied the properties of wave patterns and peak latencies of EER in 35 anesthetized adult cats. The cat EER showed two early positive waves on outward current (cornea cathode) stimulus and three or four early positive waves on inward current (cornea(More)
To analyze the electrically evoked response (EER) in relation to the central visual pathway, the response characteristics of the lateral geniculate neurons (LGNs) of the EER in 35 anesthetized adult cats were studied. Responses of the LGNs showed interindividual variation of more than one log unit in terms of the stimulus threshold for electrical stimuli.(More)
We investigated how the neuronal activity of the cells in area 17 of cats evoked by transcorneal electrical stimuli is associated with the transcorneal electrically evoked response (EER). Neuronal firings were associated with the negative components of the EER, N1 (9 ms latency) and N2 (20 ms latency). Excitation of a longer latency was suppressed and(More)
We present a single-handed and eyes-free Japanese <i>kana</i> text input system on touch screens of mobile devices. We first conducted preliminary experiments to investigate the accuracy with which subjects could single-handedly point to and flick without using their eyes. We found from the results that users can point at a screen that was divided into 2 x(More)
We show a back-of-device (BoD) interaction based on the range of motion of the index finger to improve the usability of a touchscreen mobile device held in one hand. To design this interaction, we conducted two experiments to investigate the range of motion of the index finger on the back of mobile devices. On the basis of those results, we designed a(More)
We analyzed current source density and multiple unit activity of area 17 of cats in response to transcorneal electrical stimuli to clarify the localization of the transmembrane current flows contributing to the generation of the electrically evoked response. The results of the current source density analysis were as follows. 1. Current sinks within 20 ms(More)
