In this study, the effects of mood state on taste sensitivity was evaluated in humans who exposed to condition of mental or physical fatigue and tension. Taste responses to quinine sulfate (bitter), citric acid (sour) and sucrose (sweet) were tested. The intensity of the taste sensations were recorded by a computerized time-intensity (TI) on-line system. Subjects performed mental tasks by personal computer or physical tasks by ergometer. Before and after these sessions, the sensation of taste were recorded by the TI system, and in addition, psychological mood state were evaluated with POMS (Profile of Mood State). TI evaluation showed that after the mental tasks, the duration and total amount of taste were reduced in all taste. Furthermore, the maximum intensity was reduced only in bitterness. There were no changes in bitterness and sweetness sensations following physical tasks. However, relative to before the physical task, only the sensation of sourness was reduced by physical task. We also studied the mechanism of the changes of taste sensation by analysis of saliva components.

To determine the character sizes suitable for comfortable reading, we compared the legibility of sentences and the reading speed. We used reading materials with several font sizes (from 4 to 30 point of Microsoft Mincho). In Experiment 1 participants evaluated the legibility for Japanese sentences with the questionnaire. The legibility increased with the font size between 4 and 12 point. In Experiment 2, we extended the font size up to 30 point, and found the legibility decreased with that between 20 and 30 point. In Experiment 3 participants read aloud Japanese sentences as fast as they could (with no errors). Reading speed increased with the font size between 4 and 6 point, but did not increased with that between 6 and 15 point. Together with our previous findings, we conclude that character sizes suitable for comfortable reading are approximately between 10 and 20 point (visual angle 0.46~0.92°).

The effect of granular size on the preference of samples was examined by preparing patties from three kinds of ground meat, i.e., beef, pork and chicken, which had been passed through one of five plates with orifice diameters of 2.4 - 9.6mm. The difference in preference according to the granular size of the pork and beef samples were large, while that of chicken was small. The consistency by the panelists in their granular size preference for the pork samples was higher than that for the beef samples, but the preference for the chicken was inconsistent. The patties of the most-preferred granular size were those prepared from ground meat that had been passed through a plate with an orifice diameter of 3.4 or 4.8 mm. This result indicated that the preference was related the physical properties of the patties.

The synaesthetic relation between olfaction and color has been investigated. In order to confirm it, we conducted a fragrance sniff test with 37 fragranced shampoos among 80 Japanese women and analyzed the results by using chromaticity to assign a color such as red, green, yellow and blue in addition to the color palette that Senoo and Motonaga (2008) had developed. The analysis indicated that the highly accepted fragrances tend to have a higher chromaticity value of red and a lower chromaticity value of blue. In addition, it suggested differences in consumer expectations toward fragrance cross-product categories as well as the association between color and attributes.

We analyzed the relationships between impression ratings and phonetic properties of monologues using the Corpus of Spontaneous Japanese (CSJ). The impression ratings were of subjective attributes such as speaking rate and speech style. Each attribute was rated on a seven-point scale. The phonetic properties were objective attributes such as speaking rate and pause ratio, as measured directly from the CSJ speech data. Using six phonetic properties and five impression ratings as variables, structural equation modeling was conducted to explain not only the relations between the impression and phonetic properties but also the relations among the impressions. The model showed that the impressions “Skillfulness” and “Liking” could be predicted from the impressions “Speech rate”, “Activity”, and “Formality”, which in turn could be related with the objective phonetic properties. Moreover, it was shown that the higher the “Skillfulness” evaluation, the higher the “Liking” evaluation.

This study was designed to examine the aesthetic impression of vertical strokes in the block style of calligraphy. A pair of vertical strokes in characters have been analyzed for their lower parts on both sides. Regarding the relationship between the vertical strokes, a vertical stroke on the right side is more accentuated (i. e., longer) than that on the left side. The reasons for this accentuation have been studied from an aesthetic perspective. To understand the aesthetic impression objectively, an evaluation measure has been adopted ; it is composed of three elements : proportional beauty, activity, and potency. These elements were constituted in our earlier study. A survey was conducted at a public calligraphy exhibition, and participants were chosen randomly from those present. Of the persons selected for the survey, 66.7% had some experience in calligraphy, while 33.3% did not. As a result, higher appreciation levels were noted for characters with accentuated vertical strokes on the right sides.

On Sensory Analysis, descriptive scales are frequently used with the Japanese qualitative words (most of them are adverbs). This study was to verify the ordinal efficacy of previous studies (hedonic scale construction by Yoshikawa, 1973 ; Akagi et. al, 1985) by means of the scoring method. Because of qualitative words used differently in either the positive or negative direction, selected tasks were examined first: I) which words do you use in the positive meaning and II) in the negative meaning, about 48 words previously reported, then III) scoring task(0 to 100 from a positive integer) about 21 words. Subjects (not expert panel), were 1,180 people from 15 to 53 years old (below 22 years old occupying about 96%), in 1993-1996. Although the different survey methods, there were differences: 1) “mottomo”, “hijouni”, and “kiwamete” are not to distinguish in negative expression, 2) the difference between “kanari”, and these three words, 3) the differences to “soutou”, “totemo”, “jituni”, “tokuni”, and “taisou”, 4) “hikakuteki”, “wariaini”, and “nakanaka” are independent, 5) “yaya”, “ikuraka”, “chotto”, “jakkan”, and “sukosi” are not statistically different in 95%CI. Then this study proposed a 9-point hedonic (ordinal) scale: “hijouni”, “totemo”, “yaya”, “wazukani”, “dochirademonai (sukidemokiraidemonai)”, “wazukani”, “yaya”, “totemo”, “hijouni”. In case of interval scale, it is desirable to use with numerical values.

Japanese chestnuts are known to have pellicle difficult to peel off. To make the task easier at home and in commercial processing, some methods of pretreatment have been tried out. To evaluate each method, the sensory analysis technique has been applied. Three candidate pretreatments chosen were (1) soaking in boiling water, (2) steaming, and (3) frying. The panel composed of 11 female students removed the pellicle of pretreated chestnuts, and graded the easiness. In addition, the time needed has been measured to remove the shell and peel off the pellicle of each pretreated chestnut and untreated one. The frying method was found to be the best. It reduced the time needed by 60% compared to that for untreated samples. The steaming method was also significantly effective. Soaking in boiling water makes no effect for this purpose.

We conducted a series of survey to find the source of difference in preferences among the U.S.A., Germany and Japan through the relationship between food preferences, dietary habits and evaluation on beer taste. We tried to find a measure to seize food preferences and dietary habits by questionnaires and we unveiled, by beverage preference survey, the degree of importance of factors in consumers' minds concerning both functions of beer in daily life and factors which compose deliciousness of beer. The relationship between drinking occasion and taste of beer was analyzed by the evaluation of taste of beer from the result of a test drinking using the same samples across the three countries. We recognized that there were clear differences among the three countries in food preferences, dietary habits, images toward beer, evaluation on preference and flavor strength of beer after the test drinking. It was made clear that the origin of regional difference in the taste of beer was related to the differences in food preferences, dietary habits and functions that consumers desired.

This study investigated the effect of character size on the legibility of sentences, using reading materials with several font sizes (from 4 to 10.5 point of Microsoft Mincho). Participants evaluated the legibility of the materials (Japanese sentences) with a questionnaire containing 13 items, and the legibility was estimated by applying the Item Response Theory to the questionnaire data. The legibility increased approximately in linear with the font size : Reading materials with font sizes of 4 and 6 were evaluated as less legible, those with font size of 10.5 were evaluated as more legible, and those with a font size of 8 were evaluated as “neutral”. Visual acuity of participants influenced the legibility evaluation, though the effect was small.

To understand the multimodal effects of soft drink color and flavor on the predicted palatability and taste, we prepared six differently colored water in individual plastic bottles: yellow, orange, red, purple, blue, and green, by dissolving artificial colorants with mineral water. We also used four types of essence: lemon, apple, strawberry, and mint. Each essence was placed on a smelling-strip on the underside of the bottle cap. In the visual experiment, subjects observed one of the colored waters without any olfactory cues. In the olfactory experiment, they observed non-colored water and smelled the underside of the cap. In the visual-olfactory experiment, they observed one of the colored waters while smelling an essence. Subjects evaluated the predicted palatability, sweetness, sourness, and bitterness in each experiment. As a result, palatability was higher for the yellow color with lemon flavor, and red color with strawberry flavor. In addition, the contribution ratios of flavor to color were 1.24 for palatability, 4.61 for sweetness, 1.91 for sourness, and 1.98 for bitterness.

In order to elucidate the deodorizing efficacy of a titanium oxide-type deodorant, perceived changes in refrigerator odors were assessed by subjects using 13 contrasting pairs of adjectives on an 11-point scale (from −5 to +5). This assessment by inquiry was conducted three times: once immediately before placing the deodorant in the refrigerator, again after keeping it in the refrigerator for one week, and lastly at one week after removing it from the refrigerator. The obtained sensory evaluation spectrum corresponding to the changes of scores between the first inquiry and the second inquiry (second minus first) showed an upward tendency with a positive value in terms of the 13 descriptors. This implies that the odors were lessened by the use of the deodorant. The respective spectrum (third minus first) at the removal was just the reverse. This implies that the odors were intensified by removing the deodorant. Here, the sensory evaluation spectrum was represented by a bar graph, in which the mean of the foregoing impression difference was plotted against the descriptors. When the statistical significance of each of the 13 descriptors was assessed by Student's t-test, 11 or more of the descriptors were regarded as significant among 13 descriptors at a probability value of p<0.05.

Sake yeasts are classified as foaming yeasts, which are hydrophobic, and non-foaming yeasts, which are hydrophilic. In this study the influence and function of using Sake yeasts for bread are clarified.  Breads fermented by bread yeasts, foaming yeasts, and non-foaming yeasts were examined by texture properties, microstructure, and sensory evaluation.  1) Breads fermented by bread yeasts made with butter had the largest volume among bread fermented by bread yeasts, while bread fermented by non-foaming yeasts had the smallest volume. However, specific volume of bread made without butter were each 4.5 value.  2) The color of bread fermented by foaming yeasts was similar to bread fermented by bread yeasts. As for color of the bread fermented by non-foaming yeasts, that of bread fermented by bread yeasts was able to be identified.  3) The hardness of three kinds of bread in which butter was added was not significantly different. The hardest bread without butter was bread fermented by foaming yeasts, and the softest was bread fermented by non-foaming yeasts. The cohesive property of breads tended to be lowest for breads fermented by foaming yeasts.  4) Differences in the microstructure of breads were the shape and size of gas cell. The gas cells of bread fermented by non-foaming yeasts were round and small. The gas cells in breads without butter were larger and had a flatter oval shape than those with butter. The inside of the gluten netstructure of breads without butter was observed as rough and contained a lot of gaps.  5) The results of sensory evaluation showed that the three types of bread could not be differentiated.

In the research of evaluation term, the relation between term and physical attribute has been discussed. It is necessary to research a nonchalant word where the customer spontaneously utters in daily life. The purpose of this research is to clarify whether Onomatopoeia and the exclamation are appropriate for the evaluation term. The sensory evaluation experiment of the milk lotion, which is already on the market, is done. The evaluation terms were 13 terms of Onomatopoeia and 12 terms of exclamation. The results of principle component analysis in Onomatopoeia and SURYOUKA III in exclamation became clear the followings. Onomatopoeia is a term that is able to evaluate physical attribute and to express affection. This is suitable for the evaluation of affections after an assessor has been aware of physical attributes. The exclamation is suitable for the expression of affections on the first impression.

We investigated the effect of music on emotions that were induced by two essential oils (peppermint and lavender). Participants (n=16) sniffed the stimuli of peppermint and lavender, and evaluated the emotional values while two pieces of music, one delightful and one gloomy, were presented. We found that the emotional values for the fragrances of these olfactory stimuli were influenced by the emotions induced by the music: delightful music enhanced the delightful mood induced by one of the essential oils (lavender), and gloomy music reduced the delightful mood induced by both oils.

This study examined the usefulness of the "affect curve drawing method" as a sensory evaluation method for assessing changes in affect (excitation) in response to a stimulus over time. An evaluation sheet with the X-axis representing elapsed time and the Y-axis representing affect level on a scale of 0–100 points was used to plot affect changes every hour. Differences in the changes in the affect curves between high- and low-sensitivity participants in response to a stimulus, such as a wedding DVD, were investigated. The changes in the curves were larger for high-sensitivity participants than for the low-sensitivity group. These results suggest that the high-sensitivity group were excited while watching the DVD, while the low-sensitivity group watched it without large sensory alterations. These reaction tendencies corresponded with the results of an electrocardiogram analysis of the autonomic nervous system in which the heart rate variability of the high-sensitivity group was larger than that of the low-sensitivity group. These findings indicate that the affect curve drawing method is effective for time series evaluations of affect.

We found a significant correlation between people's preference for Japanese miso and their susceptibility to mental and/or physical stress. We selected two kinds of Japanese miso, red miso and white miso. A sensory evaluation based on ANOVA revealed that miso preference significantly correlates to a mental feeling of depression (p=0.026). The feeling of depression among the examinees with a preference for red miso was lower level than that among those who had a preference for white miso. Furthermore, we attempted to classify the degree of depression into 3 levels in order to make a crosstable. Another evaluation (chi-square) on the table showed almost the same results (p=0.041). The results seem to be due to the characteristics of the ingredients of red miso.

It has been well known that a room with a bright color is perceived larger than that with a dark color. In this report, we examined whether the pattern of wallpaper itself could affect the perceived size of a room. We measured the apparent size of the room having stripes on the walls; a miniature room (Exp.1) or a real room (Exp.2). The orientation of the stripes was horizontal or vertical. We found that the room with horizontal stripes looked wider (Exp.2) or wider and deeper (Exp.1) than that with vertical stripes, but that the room with horizontal stripes looked shorter in the height than that with vertical stripes (Exp.1).
