Research Grants & Projects

Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology: Grants-in-Aid for Scientific Research(基盤研究(B))
Project Year: 2008 - 2012    Investigator(s): Hideko TAKESHITA
We verified that fetal mouth opening and fetal heart rate increase when fetuses hear their mothers voice from the second to the third trimester of pregnancy. Our results and recent findings in another project suggest that using sophisticated fetal...

Project Year: 2004 - 2006    Investigator(s): Hideko TAKESHITA
Several longitudinal studies were conducted to investigate how mother-infant communication is generated and how it develops throughout the fetal period and infancy. 1. Using four-dimensional ultrasonography, we found that fetuses opened their mout...

Project Year: 2001 - 2002    Investigator(s): Hideko TAKESHITA
Previous studies suggest that developmental interconnection among postural control, motor activity, and sensory and perceptual activities evolved to generate higher functions of cognition, which include language. Comparative approach to qualitativ...

Project Year: 1997 - 1998    Investigator(s): Hideko TAKESHITA
In human infants, combinatory manipulation seems important as a precursor of tool use. Previous studies have suggested developmental similarities in object manipulation in humans and chimpanzees during the 1st year of life but delayed combination ...
