This paper describes linguistic features of generally unreadable person names, which are defined as “KIRAKIRA names,” and proposes a method to detect KIRAKIRA names based on the features. Through the discussions, the following eight features are founded as the linguistic features of KIRAKIRA names: 1) Too many Kanji characters, 2) Too many syllables, 3) Multiple usage of a common Kanji character, 4) Kanji variants are used, 5) The pronunciation of Kanji is generally unknown, 6) Too many stroke count for Kanji, 7) Mismatching of gender between a person and the name, and 8) The pronunciation of name equals an imported word. Based on the features, KIRAKIRA names are automatically detected by using Support Vector Machine. The experiments to detect KIRAKIRA names were conducted for 10,000 names. The results of the experiments showed 81.79% accuracy, 76.89% precision, and 91.84% recall.

Plastic surgeons create of external noses based on their kansei. The outcome of the rhinoplasty depends on the surgeons' technique and artistic sense. We consider that reconstructing an external nose by using a template would solve the inconsistency of the outcome. However, there are few studies about curves of outlines of external noses. Thus, the aims of our study were to analyze curves of outlines of external noses of 84 normal subjects and to classify the curves in order to create templates as a guide for total nasal reconstruction. Concretely, we took photographs of 84 subjects' external noses and abstracted the curves of their profile outlines of external noses from the photographs by image processing. Next, we analyzed characteristics of the curves by using those profiles of curvature and classified the curves into 5 types of curves. Lastly we made innovative 380 (= 5 types × 76 sizes) nose templates based on our study in order to express the individual subtle differences of the reconstructed new nose.

In order to increase the number of videos playback, we researched on the thumbnail images and the titles which were selected by the viewers. We built the samples and conducted the questionnaires in order to reveal the factors that make a great influence on the evaluation and be clear about the positive levels. We revealed the viewers decide the videos under the influence of the images rather than sentences and words. Also, Images factors are particularly effective for males. On the other hand, females are more affected by sentences and words than males. This research revealed the guidelines that YouTuber creates thumbnail images and titles and the elements to incorporate according to the target the males or the females. As a starting point of this research, we will be able to conduct more detailed research on thumbnail images and titles.

Robot-assisted therapy has gained attention as one of mental health measures. In this paper, we investigated the influences of soft tactility on psychological and physiological stress relief effects to verify whether soft robots or hard robots are effective as therapy robots. Resultantly, we confirmed that psychological stress relief effects obtained by interaction with soft robots are significantly higher than that with hard robots, particularly reducing tension and depression, improving vigor. And we also verified that physiological stress relief effects, especially increasing alpha waves, obtained by interaction with soft robots are significantly higher, too. In addition, we found that soft tactility may have effects of inhibiting reduction users' motivation for interaction. These results suggest that soft robots are more effective as therapy robots.

This paper is aimed at evaluating the effect of prolonged mental stress on human physiological state. The human secretory immune and endocrine substances were introduced as “biomarkers” of such a prolonged stress. This relatively new field of study investigating the relationship and/or interaction between human mental and somatic states has been developed according to the development of the molecular analysis techniques, such as Enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA), and showed that the several secretory hormones and immune substances could possibly be useful stress markers. However, what types of stressors and its duration could be evaluated by such biomarkers is not well understood. In this article, the effect of prolonged mental stress during long-term graduation examination of undergraduate students was investigated comparing with the effect of short-term mental stress by simple arithmetic task. As a result, one immune substance within saliva, immunoglobulin A, was showed as a possible stress marker for both long- and short-term stressors.

We investigated the acoustical characteristic of the sounds of crickets and its physiological and psychological effect on Japanese people. The sounds of crickets belonging to Family Grylloidae were grouped into 3 clusters by using the acoustical characteristics of the sounds. For this study, 3 Grylloidae species and 2 Tettigoniidae species were selected, and the sounds were recorded in a dark room. The psychological effect, i.e., pleasantness, was investigated by administering a questionnaire, which was based on the Semantic differential (SD) method. The comfort provided by the sounds was estimated on the basis of the findings on electroencephalograms in terms of an increase in the alpha wave. From the results of the questionnaire, people preferred the sound of crickets belonging to Family Grylloidae, rather than to those of crickets belonging to Family Tettigoniidae. It seemed that there was a deep relationship between the generation of alpha wave and the duration of the silent time within the sequential sounds. On the other hand, the rate of alpha wave increase in each species was not in good agreement with the results of the questionnaire, suggesting that further study is requires to understand the relationships between psychological and physiological effect on the human's Kansei. Finally, we proposed the effective presentation of the pleasant cricket sounds.

Interest in pet robots and virtual pets is currently increasing along with the pet boom. Pet robots and virtual pets have been found to be therapeutic. However, what characteristics of pet robots and virtual pets are therapeutically effective have yet to be clarified. In this study, we carried out experiments to compare the therapeutic effects between pet robots and virtual pets in terms of physical embodiment from psychological and physiological aspects. Psychological evaluation results showed that the reduction in the tension score and increase in the vigor score with pet robots were significantly higher than those with virtual pets. Physiological evaluation results showed that the increase in the percentage of alpha waves with pet robots was significantly higher than that with virtual pets. These results suggest that physical interaction is an element for reducing mental strain and improving vitality.

In this study, we investigated the relation between autism spectrum tendencies of normal observers and evaluation of facial emotional expressions, used for “Ban Dainagon Emaki”. Recognition of facial expressions was verified by Scheffé’s (Nakaya) paired comparison method using the evaluation attributes of the four emotions (fear, anger, sadness, and happiness) in conjunction with investigation of the Autism-Spectrum Quotient (AQ). Different cognitive patterns especially extracted from communication ability, were confirmed, comparing facial expression recognition tendencies for the two groups, higher levels of autistic - like traits and lower levels of autistic - like traits. Between the two groups, the high levels on the AQ were difficult to recognize the fear of negative emotions, but regarding the happiness of positive emotion, similar tendency was demonstrated. These results are consistent with the findings obtained from previous studies on the tendency of facial expression recognition between healthy individuals and those with traits of ASD.

This study investigated the basis of a right-side dominance in aesthetic arrangement. In experiment 1, in order to examine the effect of attended position in pictures on aesthetic arrangement, we manipulated the positions of the fixation points, which attract observer's attention, and centroids of triangle arrangement for three objects. Participants rated preference, balance, beauty and harmony by the use of seven points scale for each of the pictures. We found that participants evaluated highly aesthetic in viewing the pictures whose arrangement centroids were near to the fixated position. In experiment 2, in order to examine the effect of participant's dominant hand on aesthetic arrangement we presented the objects which the participants are willing to manually manipulate, or the object which they should avoid to manually touch for right-handed or left-handed participants. We found that right-handed participants evaluated highly aesthetic in viewing the pictures whose arrangement centroid was at right side, but left-handed participant did not.

Previous studies have shown that behavioral synchronization with others positively affects various psychological and behavioral variables. However, no consistent view has been given on the effects of synchronization, as different researchers tend to use different indicators. In light of this, the purpose of this study was to comprehensively examine the effects of synchronization by using multiple psychological and behavioral indicators that have been shown to be associated with synchronization, as dependent variables. We set up conditions in which the upper arm motion was synchronous and asynchronous between two participants who maintained a controlled gaze. The results showed that synchronization of behavior with others was not an effect and not a mediated effect by psycho-logical variables; however, it had a direct effect on behavioral indicators. Specifically, compared with the asynchronous condition, the synchronous condition resulted in closer interpersonal distance between participants and greater cooperation with others in the prisoner’s dilemma game.

In recent years, the communication technique known as coaching is getting a lot of attention, and beginning to be implemented in various fields. However, the psychological effect of coaching on healthy individuals remains unclear. In order to rectify this, we have conducted a coaching observation study, and implemented psychological testing to determine its effects in this area. Also, building on the precedent set by other studies, we have carried out analysis of the content of conversation during coaching. The results show a statistical relation between conversation content and the psychological effects of coaching.

Faces with larger eyes and double eyelids are perceived as more attractive than those devoid of these features. Moreover, eye bag makeup has become fashionable among nonprofessional lay young females to enhance the perceived size of their eyes. The majority of research on the influence of the upper eyelids on facial attractiveness has been conducted using artificially generated faces; however, research on facial attractiveness forming eye bag makeup remains unexplored. This study investigated the physical and mental attractiveness of real female faces with single/double eyelids and with/without eye bag makeup. The results indicated that faces with double eyelids were rated as more attractive than those with single eyelids. Faces with eye bag makeup were generally perceived as less attractive than those without them. While this was the case regardless of the type of eyelids for mental attractiveness, eye bag makeup only impacted the faces with double eyelids for physical attractiveness.

Classification of fragrances has not accepted widely, because the range of stimuli was very wide and words of evaluation were a little. This study picked up essential oils, and selected words from prior questionnaire. Purpose of this study was to classify fragrances by psychological method. This study consisted of 2 experiments, A and B. The same materials and procedures were used in both experiments. Subjects were asked to evaluate fragrances by SD(semantic differential) method. In experiment A, a total of 220 subjects were joined and 15 pair words were used. In experiment B, 75 subjects were joined and 18 pair words were used. Cluster analysis and Factor analysis were used for analyzing the data. As a result, in both experiments, 11 clusters and 3 factors were observed, and clusters of citrus fragrances were showed. The factor of “Pleasantness” was showed in the first factor. This factor was common both experiments.

A person who is struck by deep grief due to the loss of, or unwanted separation from, his/her family, spouse or the one he/she loves is believed to take a long and gradual recovery process from the state of severe mental suffering. This study conducted interviews on ten people who went through such experience to find out how their painful loss or separation took place, their psychological states, their actions in the process of recovery afterwards, the psychological change brought about by such actions, etc. The result found that the activities recognized by the sufferers as effective in facilitating the recovery process included “creative activities, such as painting, crafting, writing, etc.” along with “social activities, such as works and volunteering”, “communications with close friends and relatives”, etc. The creative activities referred here are voluntary ones and exclude “art therapy” implemented as a part of psychotherapy.

This study investigated the relationship between facial youthfulness and facial areas. The cognitive model reported previously shows that youthfulness is a complex impression composed of estimated age, lively impression, and clean impression. Eight participants rated these impressions of seven facial images using Scheffe’s paired comparison method. The images consisted of an average face of 19 women in their 50s and modified average faces by adding moderate or severe wrinkles on the forehead, under the eyes, or around the mouth of the average face. Additionally, eye-movements were monitored during the rating of the average face. These investigations revealed that youthfulness and estimated age related to forehead and under-eye areas, whereas lively impression and clean impression related to under-eye area. Further analysis suggested that youthfulness had a combined feature of other three impressions. These results support the cognitive model of youthfulness reported previously and demonstrate that important facial areas vary with impressions.

Color has long been considered important by both the manufacturing industry and academia because it affects people’s perceptions, emotions, and behaviors. However, the evaluation of purchasing behavior until now has mainly been only in an experimental environment, and there have been concerns that differed from the actual consumer behavior. Therefore, the causal effect of the strong impression of a manufacturer’s brand color on the purchase behavior in the Japanese automobile industry was verified. Covariate was homogenized by propensity score matching based on the online survey, and the causal effect on purchase intention was extracted. As a result, the impression of the brand color had a positive effect on the purchase intention. This effect was estimated to be 5.739 in odds ratio. Commercial brands, logos, emblems, car body colors, dealers, showrooms, and even professional baseball teams were found to be factors that foster brand color.

This study is to induce by the factor analysis the factors of wakuwaku, the positive emotions at work,and to get them structured by the covariance structure analysis. The authors identified five factors composed by twenty-five items as factors of wakuwaku, and then discovered that it is the circulating structure by using the covariance structure analysis. They quantitively validated those factors and its structure by the confirmative factor analysis and the PANAS analysis to prove the efficacy of the structure.

We have confirmed the fact that the sound quality of copied digital signal is, in some cases, better than the sound quality of the original CD”, then we have considered the concerned factors and characteristics to improve the sound quality. Since no sound quality measurement tool exist, discovered two objective key perceptual assessment phrases of losing “floating atmosphere in the air-like resonance” and losing “chest penetrating impression” (Appendix 1) are used for the evaluation of the sound quality. The improvement of sound quality is up to +3 in the 7-grade comparison scale.
