There has been considerable controversy regarding whether children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and typically developing children (TD) show different eye movement patterns when processing faces. We investigated ASD and age- and IQ-matched TD children's scanning of faces using a novel multi-method approach. We found that ASD children spent less time(More)
Phthalates are extensively used as plasticizers in a variety of daily-life products, resulting in widespread distribution in aquatic environments. However, limited information is available on the endocrine disrupting effects of phthalates in aquatic organisms. The aim of the present study was to examine whether exposure to mono-(2-ethylhexyl) phthalate(More)
Individuals with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) are known to process faces atypically. However, there has been considerable controversy regarding whether ASD individuals also scan faces differently from typical adults. Here we compared ASD individuals' face-scanning patterns with those of typically developing (TD) controls and intellectually disabled (ID)(More)
How to extract envelopes accurately is the most important problem in analyzing heart sound signals, especially for abnormal heart sound signals. An effective envelope extraction is a key to the detection of S<inf>1</inf> and S<inf>1</inf> periods and noise separation, moreover, for estimating the type of heart disease. This paper compares six efficient(More)
The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of early peritoneal lavage with ulinastatin on the outcome of a rat model of severe acute pancreatitis (SAP). A total of 80 male Wistar rats were randomly divided into the following groups: Sham-operated (C), SAP model (M), saline lavage (SL), intravenous ulinastatin (IU), early ulinastatin lavage (EUL)(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the expression spectrum of microRNA (miRNA) in the lung homogenate of rats with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease(COPD) or healthy rats, to look for differentially expressed miRNA, and to explore their potential role in pathogenesis of COPD. METHODS Twenty male Sprague-Dawley (SD) rats were randomly divided into normal control(More)
Semiconductor manufacturers provide low-cost, low-power and short-range solutions for the application of Wireless Sensor Network (WSN), such as ZigBee, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi etc. The quality of radio frequency signal, which carries information in wireless communication channel, is the key to WSN. But it is easily influenced by the external environment. Received(More)
ETHNOPHARMACOLOGICAL RELEVANCE Realgar has been used as a traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) for thousands of years. Recently, a number of realgar or realgar-containing medicines poisoning cases have been reported. However, the toxicological mechanism of realgar has not been clearly clarified. In present study, the subchronic hepatotoxicity of realgar on(More)
Abstract—This paper builds a multi-demand bargaining model based on fuzzy rules, and introduces its agreement concept, which satisfies four intuitive properties of consistency, collective rationality, disagreement and minimum concession. In the model, the fuzzy rules are used to calculate how much bargainers should change their preference during a(More)
