Data from: Statistical analysis for subjective and objective evaluations of dental drill sounds

Tomomi Yamada, Sonoko Kuwano, Shigeyuki Ebisu & Mikako Hayashi
The sound produced by a dental air turbine handpiece (dental drill) can markedly influence the sound environment in a dental clinic. Indeed, many patients report that the sound of a dental drill elicits an unpleasant feeling. Although several manufacturers have attempted to reduce the sound pressure levels produced by dental drills during idling based on ISO 14457, the sound emitted by such drills under active drilling conditions may negatively influence the dental clinic sound environment....

Data from: Genome-wide sequence data suggest the possibility of pollinator sharing by host shift in dioecious figs (Moraceae, Ficus)

Nakatada Wachi, Junko Kusumi, Hsy-Yu Tzeng & Zhi-Hui Su
The obligate mutualism of figs and fig-pollinating wasps has been one of the classic models used for testing theories of co-evolution and cospeciation due to the high species-specificity of these relationships. To investigate the species-specificity between figs and fig pollinators and to further understand the speciation process in obligate mutualisms, we examined the genetic differentiation and phylogenetic relationships of four closely related fig-pollinating wasp species (Blastophaga nipponica, Blastophaga taiwanensis, Blastophaga tannoensis and Blastophaga yeni) in...

Data from: Automatic facial mimicry in response to dynamic emotional stimuli in five-month-old infants

Tomoko Isomura & Tamami Nakano
Human adults automatically mimic others' emotional expressions, which is believed to contribute to sharing emotions with others. Although this behaviour appears fundamental to social reciprocity, little is known about its developmental process. Therefore, we examined whether infants show automatic facial mimicry in response to others' emotional expressions. Facial electromyographic activity over the corrugator supercilii (brow) and zygomaticus major (cheek) of four- to five-month-old infants was measured while they viewed dynamic clips presenting audiovisual, visual and...

Data from: Rewiring of embryonic glucose metabolism via suppression of pfk-1/aldolase during mouse chorioallantoic branching

Hidenobu Miyazawa, Yoshifumi Yamaguchi, Yuki Sugiura, Kurara Honda, Koki Kondo, F. Matsuda, Takehiro Yamamoto & Makoto Suematsu
Adapting the energy metabolism state to changing bioenergetic demands is essential for mammalian development accompanying massive cell proliferation and cell differentiation. However, it remains unclear how developing embryos meet the changing bioenergetic demands during the chorioallantoic branching (CB) stage when the maternal-fetal exchange of gases and nutrients is promoted. In this study, using metabolome analysis with mass-labeled glucose, we found that developing embryos redirected glucose carbon flow into the pentose phosphate pathway (PPP) via suppression...
