Human-induced pluripotent stem cells (hiPSCs) can differentiate into functional cardiomyocytes; however, the electrophysiological properties of hiPSC-derived cardiomyocytes have yet to be fully characterized. We performed detailed electrophysiological characterization of highly pure hiPSC-derived cardiomyocytes. Action potentials (APs) were recorded from(More)
Opioid analgesics remain the choice for the treatment of moderate to severe pain. Recent research has established that the mu-opioid receptor is predominantly responsible for mediating many opioid actions, including analgesia and opioid tolerance. However, the function of delta-opioid receptors is rather puzzling at present, with inconsistent reports of(More)
We have examined the potential role of spinal glial cells in the induction of C fiber-evoked long-term potentiation (LTP) in the spinal cord. Tetanic stimulation of the sciatic nerve induced longterm potentiation of C-fiber-evoked field potentials in the spinal dorsal horn in all rats. Following intrathecal fluorocitrate (1 nmol), a glial metabolic(More)
The original version missed one reference and thus resulted in errors in references. Abstract. Fall is one of the major health threats and obstacles to independent living for elders, timely and reliable fall detection is crucial for mitigating the effects of falls. In this paper, leveraging the fine-grained Channel State Information (CSI) and multi-antenna(More)
Chronic opioid-induced analgesic tolerance remains a major obstacle to improving clinical management of moderate to severe chronic pain. Our understanding of the underlying mechanisms for opioid tolerance is only partially understood at present. In this study, we investigated the effects of chronic morphine on GABA(A) receptor-mediated synaptic(More)
Recent research has demonstrated the feasibility of detecting human respiration rate non-intrusively leveraging commodity WiFi devices. However, is it always possible to sense human respiration no matter where the subject stays and faces? What affects human respiration sensing and what's the theory behind? In this paper, we first introduce the Fresnel model(More)
Recent research has demonstrated the feasibility of detecting human respiration rate non-intrusively using commodity WiFi devices. However, it is not always possible to sense human respiration when a subject is in different locations or faces different orientations. In this demo, we will show how a centimeter-scale position change affects the respiration(More)
