Researchers at Tokyo Institute of Technology identify links between the palatability of various tastes and circulation in different parts of the face. Tastes deemed 'pleasant' increase blood flow in the eyelid according to a recent study by Hideaki Kashima, Yuka Hamada and Naoyuki Hayashi from the Prefectural University of Hiroshima, Kyushu University and Tokyo Institute of Technology. The research identifies links between the subjective perception of palatability with circulatory...

Brett Smith for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Volcanic eruptions have been known to cause global cooling, although the extent of this cooling has been a topic of scientific controversy. Now a team of atmosphere chemists from the Tokyo Institute of Technology and the University of Copenhagen has devised a method for determining which historical cooling periods are the results of volcanic eruptions. When a large volcano erupts, it can propel gases high into the stratosphere where...

Japanese researchers are developing a robot that can adapt its behavior to new situations and make educated guesses about new challenges. The researchers are working on a robot that operates based on an algorithm they have termed a self-organizing incremental neural network (SOINN). The Tokyo Institute of Technology's Osamu Hasegawa researchers found a way to program robots with pattern-based artificial intelligence that allows them to learn from experience. The team released a video of the...
