A 24-year-old Japanese graduate student died of suffocation when he taped up his nose and mouth as part of an apparent experiment to monitor the effects of breathing on body movement, police said today.

They said Tetsuo Sugawara, a graduate student in information science at Yamagata University north of Tokyo, was writing a thesis on the respiratory dynamics of the human body.
