The alterations in the secretion of sex steroids, especially estrogen, in females throughout reproductive life and its decline with age alters the functions of the neuroendocrine-immune network and renders them susceptible to age-related diseases and cancers. This study investigates the mechanisms of estrogen-induced alterations in cell-mediated immune and(More)
Modulation of neural-immune interactions by estrogen in the spleens of ovariectomized (OVX) middle-aged female rats was examined. Con A-induced lymphoproliferation, splenic tyrosine hydroxylase (TH) and nerve growth factor (NGF) expression, levels of p-ERK 1/2, p-CREB, and p-Akt, and activity of superoxide dismutase decreased in OVX rats while estrogen(More)
Robust detection of hand gestures has remained a challenge due to background clutter encountered in real-world environments. In this work, a two-stage deep learning based approach is presented to detect hands robustly in unconstrained scenarios. We evaluate two recently proposed object detection techniques to initially locate hands in the input images. To(More)
