Influenza A (H(1)N(1)) Antiviral and Cytotoxic Agents from Ferula assa-foetida.
Two new sesquiterpene coumarins, designated 5'-acetoxy-8'-hydroxyumbelliprenin (1) and 10'R-acetoxy-11'-hydroxyumbelliprenin (2), and a new diterpene, 15-hydroxy-6-en-dehydroabietic acid (3), along… Expand

BackgroundType 2 diabetes mellitus (DM), characterized by peripheral insulin resistance, is the most common form of diabetes. Probiotics are live micro-organisms that, when administered in adequate… Expand
Imagine that! ERPs provide evidence for distinct hemispheric contributions to the processing of concrete and abstract concepts
We used visual half-field presentation methods and event-related potential (ERP) measures to examine how the left (LH) and right (RH) cerebral hemispheres process concrete and abstract meanings of polysemous nouns (e.g., "green book," referring to the concrete, physical object that is a book, versus "engaging book," refers to the abstract information that a book conveys).

To watch, to see, and to differ: An event-related potential study of concreteness effects as a function of word class and lexical ambiguity
Electrophysiological techniques were used to assess the generalizability of concreteness effects on word processing across word class (nouns and verbs) and different types of lexical ambiguity… Expand
Revisiting the incremental effects of context on word processing: Evidence from single-word event-related brain potentials.
The amplitude of the N400-an event-related potential (ERP) component linked to meaning processing and initial access to semantic memory-is inversely related to the incremental buildup of semantic… Expand
Language of the Aging Brain: Event-Related Potential Studies of Comprehension in Older Adults

Older adults rely on different neural pathways and cognitive processes during normal, everyday comprehension, including a shift away from the predictive use of sentential context, differential recruitment of neural resources, and reduced engagement of controlled processing. Expand
To mind the mind: An event-related potential study of word class and semantic ambiguity
The goal of this study was to jointly examine the effects of word class, word class ambiguity, and semantic ambiguity on the brain response to words in syntactically specified contexts. Four types of… Expand

- 23 October 2007
We use the event-related optical signal (EROS), a recently developed imaging method, to reveal rapid interactions between left superior/middle temporal cortices (S/MTC) and inferior frontal cortices during the processing of semantically or syntactically anomalous sentences. Expand
IL-20 May Contribute to the Pathogenesis of Human Intervertebral Disc Herniation
Study Design. The gene expression of interleukin (IL)-20 on human herniated intervertebral disc. Objective. To elucidate the role of novel cytokine IL-20 in the pathogenesis of human intervertebral… Expand
Wave-ering: An ERP study of syntactic and semantic context effects on ambiguity resolution for noun/verb homographs.
Two event-related potential experiments investigated the effects of syntactic and semantic context information on the processing of noun/verb (NV) homographs (e.g., park). Experiment 1 embedded… Expand
