Kobe University , also known in the Kansai region as Shindai , is a leading national university located in Kobe, Hyōgo, Japan. It was established in 1949, but the academic origins of Kobe University trace back to the establishment of Kobe Higher Commercial School in 1902, which was renamed as Kobe University of Commerce, and Kobe University of Economics.Kobe University comprises 14 graduate schools and 11 undergraduate faculties. The university holds a total of about 16,000 students enrolled in undergraduate and graduate programs. The institution welcomes overseas students, which accounted for a total of 1,108 students, as of 2011. It also has 3,300 staff members, including professors, associate professors and administrative officials.Located beside the foothills of Mount Rokkō, the university provides a view of the city and port of Kobe, providing an environment for the pursuit of academic studies, especially social science areas. Kobe University is one of the oldest and largest national universities in Japan. It is consistently one of the highest ranking national universities in Japan that is not one of Japan's National Seven Universities.Kobe Higher Commercial School was one of the oldest institution with business and economics majors in Japan. Especially, the Graduate School of Economics benefits fully from a century of the history and the tradition. Kobe is also the first collegiate business school in Japan. Therefore, Kobe is called the birthplace of Japanese higher education in economics and business administration, and it has always been the center of Japanese business studies.Furthermore, the Graduate School of Law was also established with the legal studies section of the former Kobe University of Economics. It has become a leading institution of high academic institution in the field of legal and political studies, and has been successful in becoming a reputable academic center.The Research Institute for Economics and Business Administration, founded in 1919, has a history as a high-level research institution for international economics and international management. The Institute has been highly regarded internationally for its outstanding achievements in theoretical, historical, empirical, and quantitative research.In the meantime, Kobe Hospital was established in 1869; it was a training center for medical practitioners, which was one of the oldest institutions in the modern medical education in Japan.In 1990, they made new changes as one of the major universities specializing in graduate research and education.Under the Japanese Ministry of Education and Science, it has started a new Center of Excellence projects, the "Research and Education Center of New Japanese Economic Paradigms", "Development and Education Center for Advanced Business Systems", and "Research Center for Dynamic Legal Processes of Advanced Market Societies".

Provided are a line-of-sight measurement device and method, which perform automatic calibration of line-of-sight measurement for distance-gazing users. The device is provided with: an optical axis-calculating means for calculating the optical axes of both the left and right eyeballs when viewing two distant points; a discrepancy calculating means for calculating, with the visual axes of the left and right eyeballs during distance-gazing being parallel as a constraint, the discrepancies between the optical axes and the visual axes for both the left and right eyeballs; and a fixation point-calculating means for calculating the users fixation point on the basis of the discrepancy between the optical axes and the visual axes. For the constraint, the outer product value of the respective vectors of the left and right eye visual axes is 0 or the inner product of the respective unit vectors of the left and right eye visual axes is 1.

According to one embodiment, a medical imaging analyzer includes an imaging unit, a calculator, and an analyzer. The imaging unit divides an area including an object of a subject to be captured into a plurality of partial areas such that the partial areas overlap each other to form an overlapping area, and administers a contrast agent to each of the partial areas to capture a plurality of time-series images. The calculator calculates, based on the transition of the pixel value in one of the time-series images having the overlapping area, the transition of the pixel value in the other time-series image having the overlapping area. The analyzer analyzes the time-series images based on the transition of the pixel value in the one and the other of the time-series images to obtain the hemodynamics of the subject.
