To explore new noninvasive treatment options for depression, this study investigated the effects of electroacupuncture (EA) at the auricular concha region (ACR) of depression rat models. Depression in rats was induced by unpredictable chronic mild stress (UCMS) combined with isolation for 21 days. Eighty male Wistar rats were randomly assigned into four(More)
The involvement of emotions in dialogue design has attracted much interest in current research on human-computer interfaces during the past years. In this article we pick up the idea of using Hidden Markov Models (HMMs) to recognize emotions from speech signals and we describe the enhancements and optimizations of a speech-based emotion recognizer jointly(More)

TANK-binding kinase 1 (TBK1) plays an essential role in Toll-like receptor (TLR)- and retinoic acid-inducible gene I (RIG-I)-mediated induction of type I interferon (IFN; IFN-α/β) and host antiviral responses. How TBK1 activity is negatively regulated remains largely unknown. We report that TNF receptor-associated factor (TRAF)-interacting protein (TRIP)(More)
BACKGROUND Depressive disorders are the most common form of mental disorders in community and health care settings. Unfortunately, the treatment of Major Depressive Disorder (MDD) is far from satisfactory. Vagus nerve stimulation (VNS) is a relatively new and promising physical treatment for depressive disorders. One particularly appealing element of VNS is(More)
Background: High quality clinical research not only requires advanced professional knowledge, but also needs sound study design and correct statistical analyses. The number of clinical research articles published in Chinese medical journals has increased immensely in the past decade, but study design quality and statistical analyses have remained(More)
Food companies and governments in many countries are putting increasing emphasis on establishment of food traceability systems. Food traceability has become an effective way in food safety management. Aimed at food safety problems of cereal and oil products existing in the production, processing, warehousing, distribution and other links in the supply(More)
Various cyclohexyl end-capped oligomeric semiconductors based on oligothiophene, oligothiophene-fluorene, and perylene diimide have been synthesized using Stille and Suzuki coupling. These materials exhibit increased solubility over their unsubstituted and hexyl-substituted counterparts and have been successfully employed as the active component in organic(More)
The development of new organic semiconductors with improved electrical performance and enhanced environmental stability is the focus of considerable research activity. This communication presents the design, synthesis, and device stability data for novel bis-5'-alkylthiophen-2'yl-2,6-anthracene organic semiconductors. When incorporated into thin-film(More)
Although graphene is a typical two dimensional materials, it has converted to multi-dimensional materials with many unique properties. As an example, the one dimensional graphene fiber is fabricated by utilizing ionic liquid as coagulation and functional diamines as cross-linkers to connect graphene oxide layers. The fibers show excellent mechanical(More)
