  • Patent number: 11389076
    Abstract: A biomagnetic measurement system includes a magnetism measurement apparatus configured to measure a magnetism of a target; and an electrical stimulation apparatus configured to apply a stimulation current to the target. The magnetism measurement apparatus includes a confirming unit configured to confirm a magnitude of an artifact caused by the stimulation current. The electrical stimulation apparatus is configured to output a compensation current for reducing the artifact after the stimulation current is output, based on information from the confirming unit.

  • Patent number: 11375934
    Abstract: A biomagnetic measurement apparatus includes a table on which a subject is placed; a biomagnetic detector configured to detect a biomagnetic field of the subject; a supporter configured to support a detection target region from which the biomagnetic field of the subject is detected; a radiation detector provided below the supporter; and a position changer configured to change relative positions of the biomagnetic detector and the detection target region. The supporter has a surface shape that corresponds to a surface of the biomagnetic detector.

  • Publication number: 20220202372
    Abstract: A biological-data processing apparatus includes a processor; and a memory storing instructions that cause the processor to execute performing an addition-averaging process on biological data; performing a biological data process based on the biological data to obtain a process result, by using addition-average data, obtained as a result of the addition-averaging process, and a parameter that is predetermined; storing, in a storage, an addition count used to obtain the addition-average data, the addition-average data, and the parameter in association with each other; and changing a second parameter to a first parameter, in response to determining that the process result is valid when the biological data process is performed by using a first addition count that is specified and the first parameter corresponding to the first addition count, the second parameter corresponding to a second addition count that is different from the first addition count.

  • Publication number: 20220202371
    Abstract: A biological-data processing apparatus includes a processor; and a memory that includes instructions, which when executed, cause the processor to execute performing an addition-averaging process every time an addition count of biological data reaches a predetermined count, the biological data being measured in response to a trigger signal associated with a stimulus applied to one or more parts; storing, in a storage, addition-average data resulting from the addition-averaging process performed for each of the stimulated one or more parts, in association with the addition count in the addition-average data; and performing a biological data process based on the biological data, by using the addition-average data corresponding to each of the stimulated one or more parts, the addition-average data being acquired by referring to the storage based on the addition count that is specified.

  • Publication number: 20210290143
    Abstract: A bioelectric current estimation method includes acquiring position information of a nerve in a measurement target region of a subject for which magnetic data is measured with a magnetic sensor, the position information of the nerve being acquired based on a nerve image included in a morphological image of the measurement target region; acquiring a positional relationship between a position of the nerve and a position of the magnetic sensor, based on the acquired position information of the nerve and position information of the magnetic sensor when the magnetic sensor is positioned to face the measurement target region; and estimating a neural activity current, which is generated in association with neural activity of the subject, based on the acquired positional relationship and the magnetic data of the measurement target region measured by the magnetic sensor.

  • Publication number: 20210113837
    Abstract: A nerve stimulating apparatus includes a plurality of stimulating units configured to respectively apply stimuli to a plurality of nerve regions branching from a particular nerve region of a living body, and a stimulation timing controller configured to set generating timings of respectively generating the stimuli at the plurality of stimulating units. The stimulation timing controller sets the generating timings of generating the stimuli at the plurality of stimulating units based on response results of the particular nerve region, the response results being obtained in response to the stimuli that are respectively generated at the plurality of stimulating units and that are respectively applied to the plurality of nerve regions, and the response results being measured by a biometric information measuring apparatus that measures biometric information.
