This study examined how perinatal phencyclidine (PCP) treatment would affect dopamine D2 receptor and dopamine transporter (DAT) binding at different stages after treatment cessation. Female rat pups received injections of PCP (10 mg/kg, s.c.) or saline on postnatal day (PN)7, 9 and 11. D2 receptor and transporter binding was examined at four time-points(More)
With the rapid development of broadband networks and multimedia technologies, P2P video-on-demand service is increasingly gaining popularity over the past few years. However, little work has been done on an important design issue for P2P video-on-demand systems, i.e., determining the maximal service capacity of a system. In this paper, we first propose an(More)
DALI is a popular interface of lighting network system with an excellent dimming facility, but it is too complicated when it is applied in family house. Touch-Dim installation of DALI ballast is then developed. The installation and operation are much simplified but the network function is no more valid. This paper proposed an alternative network structure,(More)
We propose a novel technique that allows oligonucleotides with specific end-modification within a plug in a plug-based microfluidic device to undergo a locally enhanced concentration at the rear of the plug as the plug moves downstream. DNA was enriched and detected in situ upon exploiting a combined effect underlain by an entropic force induced through(More)
Two methods were used to calculate the meteorologically adjusted ground level ozone trends in southern Taiwan. The first method utilized is a robust linear regression method. The second approach uses a multilayer perceptron (MLP) artificial neural network (ANN) method. The observations obtained from 16 monitoring stations were analyzed and divided into six(More)
CASE A 73-year-old man with Dukes' C adenocarcinoma of the rectum, pT3N2bM0, stage IIIB, presented with voiding difficulties including poor stream and terminal dribbling for one month. The patient was under careful surveillance and had no postoperative recurrence. Physical examination revealed a palpable irregular nodular lesion (0.5 × 0.5 cm(2)) at the(More)
Hypopharyngeal hemangiomas are uncommon neoplasms that can cause dysphagia, recurrent bleeding, and airway obstruction. These lesions are a therapeutic challenge, and surgical resection is the mainstay of therapy. The goal of therapy is directed at control of the tumor and relief of symptoms rather than total eradication of the lesion. Laser therapy is a(More)
