Emotional state before sleep affects the subsequent sleep onset. The purpose of this study was to investigate how positive/negative emotion before sleep effected hypnagogic state. The movies eliciting positive or negative emotion were presented before sleep. Hypnagogic imagery was recorded as a probe of emotional experience and EEG microstate analysis was used for finding the emotion related EEG activities. The score of emotion ratings for hypnagogic imagery indicated that positive emotion was reported in not only positive condition but also in negative condition. This implied that hypnagogic state might be accompanied by positive emotion. Comparing the appearance of maps obtained from microstate analysis between conditions, the map of right temporal activity was significantly greater in positive condition while the map of the left frontal activity was greater negative condition. These results suggested that the emotion not just in presleep but also in hypnagogic state was involved in sleep onset process.

We examined how changes in participants' heart rate affect their estimation of time when listening to music. We manipulated participants' heart rate using a cycling task on an exercise bike and by varying the tempo of music. The heart rates of 48 participants were measured before and after the pedaling task on the exercise bike. One week later, they listened to the music and estimated the temporal duration (60 seconds) under the non-manipulated condition (without exercise) and heart rate manipulated condition (with exercise). The results showed that the duration of the music (60 seconds) was underestimated after light exercise and overestimated after strenuous exercise. These results suggest that the acceleration of the internal time mechanism due to an increase in the heart rate affects the perceived duration of time with relation to music.

For the purpose of providing information for the apparel field, the effects of changing the pleat number and skirt length on the visual image of 30 types of pleated skirts by age group were analyzed. The major results are as follows. Changes in the pleat number and skirt length were strongly related to the visual image of pleated skirts; the more pleats there are, the more complicated, dressy and feminine they look, while the fewer pleats there are, the more calm and plain they are regarded. In addition, it was revealed that the shorter the skirts are, the more casual, childlike and simple they look, while the longer they are, the more formal, heavy, mature and luxurious they appeared. Image changes were much more significant for the skirt length than they were for the number of pleats, while for age groups, the number of pleats accounted for much larger differences in visual image than the skirt length. In particular, compared to other age groups, there was a significant difference in image scores for subjects aged 10 to 19 for skirts that were uncommon, and for subjects in their 50s for skirts that gave them a sophisticated and charming image. As a result of principal component analysis, it is considered that the 1st principal component analysis (PC1) largely contributes to an element expressing sensitive fashion image based on expression, while PC2 contributes to the age factor based on activity. However, it was revealed that the items which strongly influence the major components are different by age, as are the items which determine the image of pleated skirts.

In recent years, as information equipment has become multi-functional, an easy-to-use interface has been demanded. Particularly, an interface design that can be operated intuitively is urgently required. Therefore, we have re-examined this problem from the point of view of familiarity and organization along the flow of execution of user behavior for the design method, characteristics, and the meaning of an intuitive interface by use of a literature search, a questionnaire survey, and experiments. Based on our results, after reviewing patterns that combine the recognition and operation by a user, we classified interfaces into four types. As a result, we have clarified the characteristics and requirements of an intuitive interface and design guidelines which form the methodological framework of an intuitive interface design. The current study focused on information terminals using a touch panel, but the design guidelines proposed should be applicable to the interface design of various devices.

On-line battle games reached a new stage. It is the movement of making a computer game sublimate for "sport". It is called electronic sport, e -Sports. The leading parts of e -Sports are not a game manufacturer but players. Manufacturers don't have the initiative, but it is the age when a users' community chooses a game. e-Sport develops in America, Europe, South Korea, Taiwan. Even Japan may be so. It may influence not only a market but also culture, education, international relations.

This paper presents a methodology for analyzing individual differences on Kansei evaluation for a set of product samples. This analysis divides subjects into several groups by each subject's Kansei evaluation data, according to what kinds of Kansei are related on what kinds of design elements. The basic idea is to classify the results of cluster analysis on individual subject's ratings. A similarity matrix of subjects is computed by comparing dendrogram of each subject. The member subjects of a group have similar response patterns, and the subjects belong to different groups have different response patterns over all Kansei and design elements. ArboART, neural network based hierarchical clustering is used for individual clustering. The methodology is applied to analyzing evaluation data of milk carton design.

Many goods and services at late night have appeared in the market. Therefore, the objective of this study was to clarify the characteristics of daily activity at late night of young people who were active at late night.<BR>The method of this study was to survey the daily activity of female student from 10p.m. to 5a.m. the next day on weekdays and holidays. The main results were as follows.<BR>(1) The difference among samples had stronger influence on the obtained data than the difference within samples.<BR>(2) The time of activities at late night was longer in students than in whole Japanese. On the rate of samples who were astir at late night, holidays was twice rate of weekdays.<BR>(3) The correlation of between bedtime and each item of daily activities for a whole day was high in the items of the free time, low in the items of the bound time and half in the indispensable time. The correlation between weekdays and holidays was also found.<BR>(4) Activities at late night were classified to five factors. The characteristics of each factor depended on the types of communication's media, for example, telephone and communication.<BR>(5) The activities, which were mostly active in late night, were telephone, computer and rest. Contrary, the items of low rate of activity at late night were work and transportation.<BR>(6) The correlations among activities were found. The character of samples related to transportation were clarified. Their character was self-assertive and aggressive.

Humans have various impressions for visual stimulus such as order/disorder and aesthetic preference, but the brain characteristics that each impression reflects are not readily apparent. We hypothesized that perception of order/disorder reflects the stimulus processing fluency. We conducted one preliminary experiment and two main experiments. The preliminary experiment simultaneously presented two stimuli to participants, who judged which stimulus was the more disordered. We scored perception of order/disorder using participants' responses. The main experiments used a same-different judgment task to assess the hypothesis. We presented two stimuli simultaneously, scored with perception of order/disorder. Participants reported whether the stimuli were the same or not. Participants easily judged whether the two stimuli were the same or not when the same-difference task included the stimulus perceived as orderly. Results suggest that the impression of order/disorder reflects the processing fluency for each stimulus.

This study reports the results of a subject investigation that was conducted on the cause and effect of the phenomenon known as “kawaii.” To experience that something is “kawaii” is a psychological phenomenon; however, it has not been clarified what type of causes lead to this type of effect. Due to the existence of several opinions regarding what comprises “kawaii,” it is difficult to entirely clarify the topic. Three group interviews were conducted with a total of 30 subjects. The laddering method devised by D. Hinkle was used as the question form, and 15 stimuli were used for the investigation. The causes were classified into “shape,” “behavior or expression,” and “personality ”; the effects were classified into 20 social needs and 16 emotional categories. Regarding the effects of “kawaii,” “happiness” was considerably selected followed by “affiliation” and “nurturance.” Moreover, the relationship between the causes and the effects was further understood.

The purpose of this study was to explore the relationship between humans and objects they treasure using the analogy of interpersonal relationships. Four hundred and eighteen undergraduates were asked to name objects they were especially fond of. They then rated the likeness or similarity of these things to themselves and others, and they specified the reason they liked the objects. The results showed that certain objects carried with them strong metaphors for the subjects' interpersonal relationships. The study also analyzed the relationship between these metaphors and the reasons given by the subjects for liking the objects named. Although this was an exploratory study, the analysis of the relationship between humans and the objects might be useful for the development of new products that people will treasure.

In this thesis, the relationship between sound and colour has been analysed with two different methods. First, colours are applied to sounds using the psychological technique that is based on a study on synaesthesia. In the second approach, the ideal tones are linked to hues that are referring to adjectives. However, both methods have their disadvantages. This study investigates the relationship between timbres and colours with quantitative data from tonal structures.In the first step, the relationship between timbres and colours is aggregated by conducting an experiment with subjects. The results are compared with the quantitative structure of the tone colours. From the result, four basic laws that define the causal relationship between timbre and cool or warm colours have been defined: overtone, fundamental frequency, length of sound and decay of sound.

The civil construction in a particular community should be given a name that appropriately reflects the climate and culture of the area (expressed as "fudo"in Japanese) where they are constructed, which will add social and culturalvalue to it. From the view of Fudo Engineering, the namer may well be required to have all the knowledge of the fudo of the area, however, it is not easy to acquire the adequate knowledge. Here, we will propose to use our newly developed computerized consultation system, which uses an electronic encyclopedia, to get the fudo information effectively. When the user inputs a name of the place, this system searches all the descriptions about it from the encyclopedia. The descriptive text includes the nature environment, origin, history and so on. Then, it automatically extracts the nouns and the adjectives from the text, and makes a word list semantically related to the each extracted word. The word list helps the user choose a word or coin a new word conceptually related to the community as a name for the construction

The purpose of this study is to find effective design elements to make maps easy to use for people with poor directional ability. We conducted comparative experiments using 12 types of existing maps. 58 subjects tried to find their ways using several maps in large spaces such as shopping malls and stations with rather complex structures. After observing their behaviors, we conducted interviews to clarify supportive design elements of maps to find ways. As a result, we found some effective design elements such as vivid color tones, the right angle of bird's-eye-view, the right degree of deformation of illustrations, readable design from upside down position when maps are rotated, for example. We also found two important requirements of map design; (1) landmarks on maps should be easily collated with real landmarks, (2) relations between different stories of the building should be clearly described.

This paper proposes an automatic robot manzai (comic dialogue) generation system. In the proposed system, input sentences such as a tale, story, etc. are converted into a manzai script composed of boke (stupid joke) and tsukkomi (comeback). Then, two humanoid robots play the manzai taking roles of a funny man and a straight man, respectively. Their motions are determined from the motion database based on a verb in the utterance. The contributions of the paper are the following three points; a proposal of the novel system for an automatic robot manzai generation which can accept a normal story, convert it to the manzai script and play the manzai: verification of the usefulness of motions in the manzai to make it funnier by experiments: indication of the effectiveness of the proposed system by experiments.

This paper describes linguistic features of generally unreadable person names, which are defined as "<I>KIRAKIRA</I> names," and proposes a method to detect <I>KIRAKIRA</I> names based on the features. Through the discussions, the following eight features are founded as the linguistic features of <I>KIRAKIRA</I> 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, <I>KIRAKIRA</I> names are automatically detected by using Support Vector Machine. The experiments to detect <I>KIRAKIRA</I> names were conducted for 10,000 names. The results of the experiments showed 81.79% accuracy, 76.89% precision, and 91.84% recall.

This is a preparatory report of the study on the cognitive characteristics of color names in the congenitally blind. We conducted following two surveys on fifteen congenital blind persons to measure resemblance among color terms in the congenitally blind: (1) Ten participants were asked to recall color names similar to displayed color names which was also(originally)recalled by the participants. (2) Participants judged the similarities of all pairs of color names corresponding to 16 color names; siro, kuro, aka, ki, midori, ao, tya, murasaki, orange, pink, hai, kon, hada, mizu, sora, kimidori. For each of these names selected from recalled color vocabulary survey. The results show that the characteristics of congenital blind persons' color representations were absence of hue ordering seen in sighted people. Instead of hue ordering, multiple hue groups containing perceptually close color terms were identified; dark, light, warm, cool. This grouping could be explained through categorization process in Kay & McDaniel's modified basic term theory.

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 paper, we propose an attribute added face image generation system using Deep Convolutional Generative Adversarial Networks (DCGANs). Convolutional Neural Networks (CNNs) can extract important features of an image and attain high precision in image classification tasks. In the proposed system, image features are extracted using CNNs, and attribute features added to image features, and attributes added images are generated by DCGANs. Specifically, we use the attributes of “smile” and “male”, and work on a task of generating smile images from non-smile images, and a task of generating male images from women images. Since the training of the proposed system requires image pairs including with and without attributes, we use two extraction methods using attribute label and cosine similarity. Attribute features are defined as the averaged difference between image features with and without attributes. We performed two kinds of evaluation experiments, and excellent characteristics were obtained.

Augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) has been used for amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) patients with severe communication difficulties. We planned a brief educational course for students in multiple healthcare disciplines. In 2018 we held 2 sessions more than 5 months apart. We set out to test a preliminary hypothesis that there would be a difference between novice students and an experienced group of students who had already attended the session once, especially in terms of their ease in managing the AAC. We compared data from the second training session between 6 students (experienced group) who had attended the same session twice in March and August, and 6 new students (novice group) who had never experienced AAC before August. We measured the number of letters obtained by each AAC method and the participants’ perceived burden before/after using AAC evaluated by a visual analog scale (VAS). We also asked the participants to write comments after using AAC. We compared the number of letters and the subjective burden between the two groups. Free-text comments were processed by text-mining software (KH Coder®). The burden of the Flick type of communication board was lower for the experienced group (p=0.034). Comparison of Difficulty/Ease of the two groups with KH Coder® suggested less difficulty in the experienced group (p=0.002). Text-mining of the free comments suggested some difference on Difficulty/Ease between the 2 groups with and without the experience of the educational course.

Yuki-Tsumugi has very long history and was registered with intangible cultural heritage promoted by UNESCO in 2010. The purpose of this study is to investigate texture characteristic to describe Kansei values of Yuki-tsumugi. We carried out two experiments; one was sensory inspection to evaluate tactile sensation by the method of paired comparisons, the other was to measure mechanical properties by KES-F (Kawabata Evaluation System for Fabric). As results, it was clarified that a Honba Yuki-tsumugi was superior in bending and shear recovery. Its surface had small coefficient of friction and it was bulky. Furthermore, a high correlation between “flexibility” and shear rigidity (G) was shown.
