Early-stage romantic love can induce euphoria, is a cross-cultural phenomenon, and is possibly a developed form of a mammalian drive to pursue preferred mates. It has an important influence on social behaviors that have reproductive and genetic consequences. To determine which reward and motivation systems may be involved, we used functional magnetic(More)
Mammals and birds have evolved three primary, discrete, interrelated emotion-motivation systems in the brain for mating, reproduction, and parenting: lust, attraction, and male-female attachment. Each emotion-motivation system is associated with a specific constellation of neural correlates and a distinct behavioral repertoire. Lust evolved to initiate the(More)
BACKGROUND Entropy is a nonlinear index that can reflect the degree of chaos within a system. It is often used to analyze epileptic electroencephalograms (EEG) to detect whether there is an epileptic attack. Much research into the state inspection of epileptic seizures has been conducted based on sample entropy (SampEn). However, the study of epileptic(More)
Magnetic resonance diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) allows the directional dependence of water diffusion to be studied. Analysis of the resulting image data allows for the determination of fractional anisotropy (FA), apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC), as well as allowing three-dimensional visualization of the fiber tract (tractography). We visualized the(More)
The potential for malignancy detection using dynamic infrared imaging (DIRI) has been investigated in an animal model of human malignancy. Malignancy was apparent in images formed at the vasomotor and cardiogenic frequencies of tumour bearing mice. The observation of malignancy was removed by the administration of an agent that blocks vasodilation caused by(More)
Scientists have described many physical and behavioral traits in avian and mammalian species that evolved to attract mates. But the brain mechanisms by which conspecifics become attracted to these traits is unknown. This paper maintains that two aspects of mate choice evolved in tandem: 1) traits that evolved in the "display producer" to attract mates and,(More)
Recognizing the emotion of the text plays a key role in the human-computer interaction. This paper established a textual emotion recognition model incorporating personality in it. The paper defined a series of basic emotion reasoning rules and revised it to user's emotion reasoning rules on the basis of personality model. The basic emotion reasoning rules(More)
The osteogenic capacity of mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) and the importance of beta-adrenergic signals in bone formation and resorption have been well investigated. However, little is known about the development of beta-adrenergic receptor (beta-AR) systems and the role of beta-adrenergic signals in osteogenic differentiation of MSCs, which is critically(More)
The adipogenic capacity of mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) and the involvement of beta-adrenergic signals in lipolysis and thermogenesis have been well established. However, little is known about the development of beta-adrenergic receptor (beta-AR) systems and the role of beta-adrenergic signals in adipogenic differentiation of MSCs. In this study, we(More)
Resting state functional brain networks have been widely studied in brain disease research. However, it is currently unclear whether abnormal resting state functional brain network metrics can be used with machine learning for the classification of brain diseases. Resting state functional brain networks were constructed for 28 healthy controls and 38 major(More)
