Accurate prediction of nanoparticle (1~100 nm) deposition in the rat nasal cavity is important for assessing the toxicological impact of inhaled nanoparticles as well as for potential therapeutic applications. A quasi-steady assumption has been widely adopted in the past investigations on this topic, yet the validity of such simplification under various(More)
Adequate perception of nasal airflow (i.e., nasal patency) is an important consideration for patients with nasal sinus diseases. The perception of a lack of nasal patency becomes the primary symptom that drives these patients to seek medical treatment. However, clinical assessment of nasal patency remains a challenge because we lack objective measurements(More)
In many sensory organs, specialized receptors are strategically arranged to enhance detection sensitivity and acuity. It is unclear whether the olfactory system utilizes a similar organizational scheme to facilitate odor detection. Curiously, olfactory sensory neurons (OSNs) in the mouse nose are differentially stimulated depending on the cell location. We(More)
BACKGROUND Nasal airflow is essential for the functioning of the human nose. Given individual variation in nasal anatomy, there is yet no consensus what constitutes normal nasal airflow patterns. We attempt to obtain such information that is essential to differentiate disease-related conditions. METHODS Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) simulated nasal(More)
Odor information is first represented as a spatial activation pattern across the olfactory epithelium, when odor is drawn into the nose through breathing. This epithelial pattern likely results from both the intrinsic olfactory sensory neuron (OSN) sensitivity and the sorptive patterns imposed by the interaction of nasal aerodynamics with physiochemical(More)
How to select effective emotional features are important for improving the performance of automatic speech emotion recognition. Although various feature dimension reduction algorithms were put forward that could help gain the accuracy rate of emotion distinction, but most of them exist various defects, such as high negative impact of the recognition rate,(More)
BACKGROUND Besides sensorineural factors, conductive impediments likely contribute to olfactory losses in chronic rhinosinusitis (CRS) patients, yet no conclusive evidence exists. We aimed to examine possible conductive factors using computational fluid dynamics (CFD) models. METHODS A total of 29 CRS patients were assessed via odorant detection(More)
The required length of the utterance is one of the key factors affecting the performance of automatic emotion recognition. To gain the accuracy rate of emotion distinction, adaptation algorithms that can be manipulated on short utterances are highly essential. Regarding this, this paper compares two classical model adaptation methods, maximum a posteriori(More)
The human nose serves vital physiological functions, including warming, filtration, humidification, and olfaction. These functions are based on transport phenomena that depend on nasal airflow patterns and turbulence. Accurate prediction of these airflow properties requires careful selection of computational fluid dynamics models and rigorous validation.(More)
Tone recognition is the core function in Chinese speech perception. The tone perception ability of people with sensorineural hearing loss (SNHL) is often weaker than normal people. Automatically tone enhancement would be useful in helping them understand Chinese speech better. In this paper, we focus on the tone enhancing model for Chinese disyllable words.(More)
