Curcumin is a major constituent of curcuma longa, a traditional medicine used to manage mental disorders effectively in China. The neuroprotective effects of curcumin have been demonstrated in our previous studies. In the present research, we confirmed this effect by showing that curcumin application promoted the viability of cultured rodent cortical(More)
BACKGROUND No single standard treatment exists for patients with small, node-negative, human epidermal growth factor receptor type 2 (HER2)-positive breast cancers, because most of these patients have been ineligible for the pivotal trials of adjuvant trastuzumab. METHODS We performed an uncontrolled, single-group, multicenter, investigator-initiated(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)
BACKGROUND Neuron loss, glial activation and vascular degeneration are common sequelae of ischemia-reperfusion (I/R) injury in ocular diseases. The present study was conducted to explore the ability of curcumin to inhibit retinal I/R injury, and to investigate underlying mechanisms of the drug effects. METHODOLOGY/PRINCIPAL FINDINGS Different dosages of(More)
The two sibling species Helicoverpa armigera and Helicoverpa assulta utilise the same two aldehydes as their sex pheromones, but in opposite ratios. In both species three odorant-binding proteins (OBPs) can be classified as pheromone-binding proteins (PBPs). To investigate the role of these three PBPs in chemical communication between sexes and their mode(More)
Depression is closely linked to the morphology and functional abnormalities of multiple brain regions; however, its topological structure throughout the whole brain remains unclear. We collected resting-state functional MRI data from 36 first-onset unmedicated depression patients and 27 healthy controls. The resting-state functional connectivity was(More)
Worms can spread throughout the Internet very quickly and are a great security threat. Constant quarantine strategy is a defensive measure against worms, but its reliability in current imperfect intrusion detection systems is poor. A pulse quarantine strategy is thus proposed in the current study. The pulse quarantine strategy adopts a hybrid intrusion(More)
Image inpainting provides a means to restore damaged region of an image, such that the image looks complete and natural after the inpainting process. This paper presents a new inpainting algorithm, which implements the filling of damaged region based on morphological erosion and structure feature replication. The method, which is based on a(More)
