In this study, we examine the neural substrates underlying Tone 3 sandhi and tone sequencing in Mandarin Chinese using fMRI. Tone 3 sandhi is traditionally described as the substitution of Tone 3 with Tone 2 when followed by another Tone 3 (i.e., 33→23). According to current speech production models, target substitution is expected to engage the posterior(More)
BACKGROUND Stress and glycemic control have a significant and positive relationship. However, elderly diabetic patients who are relocated involuntarily to an institution often exhibit poor control of blood sugar. Few studies have addressed the relationship between relocation stress and diabetes control. PURPOSE This study explores the relationship between(More)
Humor is crucial in human social interactions. To study the underlying neural processes, three comedy clips were shown twice to 20 volunteers during functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI). Inter-subject similarities in humor ratings, obtained immediately after fMRI, explained inter-subject correlation of hemodynamic activity in right frontal pole and(More)
The quality of an environmental monitoring application can often be measured by the number of samples collected per unit time. This is to guarantee the reconstruction of the monitored signal. For applications that use wireless sensors for untethered monitoring at rural areas, the challenge is to satisfy the sensing quality while maintaining a long-running(More)
