Orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing is a popular method for high-data-rate wireless transmission. OFDM may be combined with multiple antennas at both the access point and mobile terminal to increase diversity gain and/or enhance system capacity on a time-varying multipath fading channel, resulting in a multiple-input multiple-output OFDM system. In(More)
In this paper, we propose an accurate and efficient timing synchronization method for distributed multi-input multi-output (MIMO) orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) system in both AWGN and multi-path Rayleigh fading channels. A modified cyclic delay synchronization pattern (MCDSP) is proposed and it is verified to be especially suitable for(More)
Gamma-secretase cleavage, mediated by a complex of presenilin, presenilin enhancer (Pen-2), nicastrin, and Aph-1, is the final proteolytic step in generating amyloid beta protein found in brains of Alzheimer's disease patients and Notch intracellular domain critical for proper neuronal development. Here, we employ the zebrafish model to study the role of(More)
Long-term potentiation (LTP) of C-fiber-evoked field potentials in spinal dorsal horn may be relevant to hyperalgesia, an increased response to noxious stimulation. The mechanism underlying this form of synaptic plasticity is, however, still unclear. Considerable evidence has shown that calcium/calmodulin-dependent protein kinase II (CaMKII), protein kinase(More)
This paper explores educational uses of virtual learning environment (VLE) concerned with issues of learning, training and entertainment. We analyze the state-of-art research of VLE based on virtual reality and augmented reality. Some examples for the purpose of education and simulation are described. These applications show that VLE can be means of(More)
Long-term potentiation (LTP) of C-fiber-evoked field potentials in spinal dorsal horn may be relevant to pathological pain. Our previous work has shown that the late phase of the spinal LTP is protein synthesis-dependent. Considerable evidence has accumulated that dopamine D1/D5 receptors are important for late-phase LTP in hippocampus. In this study, the(More)
Genetic characterization of a total of 15 Giardia lamblia isolates, 8 from Anhui Province, China (all from purified cysts) and 7 from Seoul, Korea (2 from axenic cultures and 5 from purified cysts), was performed by polymerase chain reaction amplification and sequencing of a 295-bp region near the 5' end of the small subunit ribosomal DNA (eukaryotic 16S(More)
Previous works have shown that activation of extracellular signal-regulated kinase (ERK)/cAMP response element binding protein (CREB) pathway is essential for long-term potentiation (LTP) in hippocampus. In the present study, the role of the ERK/CREB pathway in LTP of C-fiber evoked field potentials in spinal dorsal horn, which is relevant to pathologic(More)
