Depressive symptoms affect 40% to 50% of Parkinson's disease (PD) patients, and adversely impact their quality of life. The decrease of serotonin (5-HT) in the synaptic cleft is commonly considered as the cause of depression. The reuptake of 5-HT released into the synaptic cleft is mediated by the 5-HT transporter (5-HTT). Many studies have focused on the(More)
Colorand texture are two important features in content-based image retrieval. It has been shown that using the combination of both could provide better performance. In this paper, a K-means based histogram (KBH) using the combination of color and texture features for image retrieval is proposed. Multiresolution feature vectors representing color and texture(More)
PURPOSE To investigate sonic hedgehog (SHH) expression and its effects on retinal Müller cells in diabetic rats and in vitro culture systems under high-glucose stress. METHODS Diabetic rats were induced by intraperitoneal injection of streptozotocin. Primary rat retinal Müller cells were grown in medium containing 5.5 or 35 mM glucose with SHH and/or(More)
BACKGROUND Studies have shown that mini-αA can protect retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) cells from apoptosis. However, no in vivo study concerning the anti-apoptotic function of mini-αA has been conducted yet. METHODS MTT assay, HE staining and TUNEL assay were used to assess levels of cells, and an animal model was established to examine the protective(More)
Fibroblast growth factors (FGFs) play important roles in many aspects of embryonic development. During eye development, the lens and corneal epithelium are derived from the same surface ectodermal tissue. FGF receptor (FGFR)-signaling is essential for lens cell differentiation and survival, but its role in corneal development has not been fully(More)
Nowadays, 3D vision is a common tool that is now available in the consumer electronics and many current and future applications require high speed estimation of the object depths of acquired image scenes. High speed acquisition and image processing are challenging tasks that are the heart of this session. According to the process and acquisition(More)
