Endogenous opioid peptides play an essential role in the intrinsic modulation and control of inflammatory pain, and could be therapeutically useful. These opioid peptides are synthesized as parts of larger precursor molecules. One such precursor molecule is pro-opiomelanocortin (POMC). In this study, we developed a gene-gun method for the transfer of POMC(More)
A number of modeling perspectives are relevant to the design of intelligent, adaptive, and collaborative support for humans who work in complex sociotechnical, systems. We first describe the separate strands of normative models of activity and communication and self-organizing models of organizational adaptation to technology, and then braid them together(More)

The TEAM (Team Engineering Analysis and Modeling) research project advocates a competence-centered approach to modeling the Interactlon among members of engineering design teams. This paper describes the first phase of research: empirical analysis of team member Interactions. Comments and responses from an electronic design review system were analyzed to(More)
Activation of cutaneous C-fibers by capsaicin or sciatic nerve transection increases the number of astrocytic gap junctions as well as the levels of connexin 43 in the dorsal horn on the stimulated side. Changes in connexin 37 mRNA expression following nerve injury have not been previously documented. We examined the role of gap junction protein connexin 37(More)
STUDY DESIGN Cross-sectional, correlational design. OBJECTIVES To examine the effects of individual demographics, activities of daily living, social support, and self-concept on depressive symptoms in people with spinal cord injury (SCI). SETTING A convenience sample of 135 adults with SCI was recruited from medical and rehabilitation centres in Taiwan.(More)
We have investigated thermal conductivity of graphene laminate films deposited on polyethylene terephthalate substrates. Two types of graphene laminate were studied, as deposited and compressed, in order to determine the physical parameters affecting the heat conduction the most. The measurements were performed using the optothermal Raman technique and a(More)

The goals of Project CITY (Civil Infostructure Technology) are to provide a technology demonstration of information infrastructure for civil infrastructure management and to demonstrate the Team Engineering Analysis and Modeling (TEAM) methodology in the analysis, design, and evaluation of that information infrastructure. The community of practice of(More)
