  • Publication number: 20190254548
    Abstract: The present invention provides a bio-electrode composition comprising a polymer compound having a repeating unit A that contains silver salt of fluorosulfonic acid, silver salt of fluorosulfonimide, or silver salt of fluorosulfonamide. This can form a living body contact layer for a bio-electrode with excellent electric conductivity, biocompatibility and light weight, which can be manufactured at low cost and does not cause large lowering of the electric conductivity even when it is wetted with water or dried. The present invention also provides a bio-electrode in which the living body contact layer is formed from the bio-electrode composition and a method for manufacturing the bio-electrode.

  • Patent number: 10357181
    Abstract: Provided is a method of analyzing brain activities for realizing a biomarker for neurological/mental disorder, based on brain function imaging. From measured data of resting-state functional connectivity MRI of a healthy group and a patient group, correlation matrix (80) of degree of brain activities among prescribed brain regions is derived for each subject. Feature extraction is executed by regularized canonical correlation analysis (82) on the correlation matrix (80) and attributes of the subject including a disease/healthy label of the subject. Based on the result of regularized canonical correlation analysis, by discriminant analysis (86) through sparse logistic regression, a discriminator (88) is generated.

  • Patent number: 10358309
    Abstract: A sheet conveying device, which is included in an image forming apparatus and a post processing device, includes multiple position detectors and a position corrector. The multiple position detectors are aligned along a sheet conveying direction and configured to detect a side end of a sheet. The position corrector is configured to convey the sheet and correct a position of the sheet based on a positional deviation amount of the sheet, obtained by a detection result of the multiple position detectors. The positional deviation amount of the sheet is obtained by an extreme downstream position detector in the sheet conveying direction, of the multiple position detectors. A position of a subsequent sheet is corrected based on a sum of the positional deviation amount of the sheet and a positional deviation amount of the subsequent sheet.

  • Publication number: 20190203412
    Abstract: A wire rope formed from a resin core and six strands, the resin core having an inner core with a circular cross section and an outer layer built up on the periphery thereof. The outer layer has a melting temperature lower than that of the inner core. The six strands are twisted together helically on the periphery of the resin core in an intertwining die in such a state that gaps are assured between the strands. The resulting wire rope is heated in a heating unit at a temperature higher than the melting temperature of the outer layer but lower than the melting temperature of the inner core. The wire rope is formed by subsequently compressing the six strands from the periphery thereof in a compressing die. The molten outer layer is hardened by natural cooling, after which the wire rope is taken up.

  • Publication number: 20190170712
    Abstract: The detection of minute amounts of components that have been undetectable due to an influence of a mobile phase or reagents or the like added to the mobile phase is realized in LC-MS. At the outset, blank measurement is executed, and an m/z value MBG of a background signal derived from a mobile phase or the like is extracted on a mass spectrum obtained by the blank measurement (S2-S4). An analysis method is then created that executes scanning measurement in a plurality of divided m/z ranges in which the m/z value MBG of the background signal has been excluded from a predetermined m/z range. An LC/MS analysis of the target sample is executed according to the analysis method (S5-S6). When a total ion chromatogram (TIC) is created from data obtained by the LC/MS analysis, influence of the background signal hardly appears in the TIC, and the base line is lowered.

  • Publication number: 20190171737
    Abstract: A method and/or system for managing a database that stores space-time context objects is provided. The system receives a query range in a multi-dimensional space. The system maps the query range into a set of fragments of a space-filling curve that fills the multi-dimensional space in all dimensions of the multi-dimensional space. The system uses each mapped fragment in the set of mapped fragments as a key to query the database for space-time context objects that are mapped to the space-filling curve. The system queries the database by identifying one or more context objects that intersect the mapped fragment at the space-filling curve.
