Toshimitsu Musha right after he retired from Tokyo Institute of Technology, aiming at developing new EEG analysis technologies for non-invasively estimating signal processing in the brain. The first target was prevention of the sudden death coming from the mental overwork of workaholic people. Eventually he has reached a new technique of reading a dynamic change of our mind. This technique expresses the emotional state as an emotion vector in the 4-D rectangular coordinate system spanned by four orthogonal sates: stress, joy, depression, and relaxation.
