UNLABELLED Abnormalities of frontal white matter (WM) have been found in some children with ADHD. The purpose of this study was to explore the changes in WM in child patients with ADHD by DTI, which detects changes in WM microstructure based on properties of diffusion. We also expect to investigate the relationship between the changes in WM and executive(More)
Imaging studies of schizophrenia (SCZ) have repeatedly demonstrated volume differences in superior temporal gyrus (STG) and its subregions. Among them, some studies employed the Region of Interest (ROI) method. We carried out a systematic review of the published literature on STG volumetry MRI studies to examine the potential of ROI method for identifying(More)
Previous studies have suggested that catechol-O-methyltransferase (COMT), proline dehydrogenase (PRODH), and brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) genes are possible susceptibility genes for schizophrenia. We hypothesized that these genes are also associated with schizotypal traits, which are heritable and related to schizophrenia. We genotyped five(More)
A bunch of microRNAs (miRNAs) have been demonstrated to be aberrantly expressed in cancer tumor tissue and serum. The miRNA signatures identified from the serum samples could serve as potential noninvasive diagnostic markers for breast cancer. The role of the miRNAs in cancerigenesis is unclear. In this study, we generated the expression profiles of miRNAs(More)
Although recent studies have clearly demonstrated functional and structural abnormalities in adolescents with internet gaming addiction (IGA), less is known about how IGA affects perfusion in the human brain. We used pseudocontinuous arterial spin-labeling (ASL) perfusion functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) to measure the effects of IGA on resting(More)
Six full-length cDNA encoding boron transporters (BOR) were isolated from Brassica napus (AACC) by rapid amplification of cDNA ends (RACE). The phylogenic analysis revealed that the six BORs were the orthologues of AtBOR1, which formed companying with the triplication and allotetra-ploidization process of B. napus, and were divided into three groups in B.(More)
Sustained attention has been proposed as an endophenotype of schizophrenia, and consequently may be useful as a quantitative trait in genetic studies. In the present study, we used the continuous performance test (CPT) to measure sustained attention in 112 first-episode and neuroleptic-naive schizophrenic patients, 296 of their non-psychotic first-degree(More)
The aim of the current study was to investigate the utility of diffusional kurtosis imaging (DKI) in the detection of gray matter (GM) alterations in people suffering from Internet Gaming Addiction (IGA). DKI was applied to 18 subjects with IGA and to 21 healthy controls (HC). Whole-brain voxel-based analyses were performed with the following derived(More)
Safety problem is always a big obstacle for lithium battery marching to large scale application. However, the knowledge on the battery combustion behavior is limited. To investigate the combustion behavior of large scale lithium battery, three 50 Ah Li(Ni(x)Co(y)Mn(z))O2/Li(4)Ti(5)O(12) batteries under different state of charge (SOC) were heated to fire.(More)
