We have applied functional near-infrared spectroscopy (fNIRS) to the human forehead to distinguish different levels of mental workload on the basis of hemodynamic changes occurring in the prefrontal cortex. We report data on 3 subjects from a protocol involving 3 mental workload levels based on to working memory tasks. To quantify the potential of fNIRS for(More)
We previously showed that the content of advanced glycation end products (AGEs) in the diet correlates with serum AGE levels, oxidant stress (OS), organ dysfunction, and lifespan. We now show that the addition of a chemically defined AGE (methyl-glyoxal-BSA) to low-AGE mouse chow increased serum levels of AGEs and OS, demonstrating that dietary AGEs are(More)
In the past decades, we have witnessed the developments of various kinds of modern or postmodern control theories, such as LQG or LQR optimal control, H ∞ control, and µ analysis and synthesis, from their emergence to maturity and applications in some practical systems. Despite of the success of the modern or postmodern control theory, we have to admit that(More)
Recognizing actions from a monocular video is a very hot topic in computer vision recently. In this paper, we propose a new representation of actions on the intrinsic shape manifold learned by various graph embedding algorithms. The co-occurrence matrices descriptor captures more temporal information than the histogram descriptor which only considers the(More)
The objective of this study was to evaluate the effect of bone marrow mesenchymal stem cells (BMSCs) on the apoptosis of granulosa cells (GCs) in rats. BMSCs and GCs were isolated from rats. GCs were separated into one of the following three groups: an untreated control group (control), a cisplatin (5 mg/L) treatment group (cisplatin), and group co-cultured(More)
