Progesterone is an efficient candidate for treating stroke and traumatic brain damage. The current study was designed to investigate the effects of progesterone on glucose transporter proteins (GLUT1 and GLUT3) during hypoxic-ischemic injury in a neonatal rat model. We demonstrated strong staining for GLUT1 in the walls of blood vessels and GLUT3(More)
P2X receptors are a group of homo/hetero-trimeric membrane protein complexes with an integral ion channel that opens upon extracellular adenosine triphosphate (ATP) binding (North, 2002; Khakh and North, 2006). There are seven P2X subunits (P2X1-P2X7), all having a membrane topology of cytosolic N-and C-termini, and two transmembrane segments (TM1 and TM2)(More)
Saccadic eye movements are central to primate behavior and serve to move the eyes to visual objects of interest. Express saccades, unlike regular saccades, occur with very short reaction times, a behavior necessary for speeded reactions in goal-directed behavior. Previous studies have shown that introduction of a blank interval (gap) between the fixation(More)
Accumulative evidence shows that neural variability is meaningful and powerful during brain information processing, but how cognitive state influences neural variability is still unclear. We studied neural variability during motor preparation in lateral intraparietal area (LIP), a brain area closely involved in saccade generation. During motor preparation,(More)
Different order between Mongolian and Chinese and the scarcity of parallel corpus are the main problems in Mongolian-Chinese statistical machine translation (SMT). We propose a method that adopts morphological information as the features of the maximum entropy based phrase reordering model for Mongolian-Chinese SMT. By taking advantage of the Mongolian(More)
Although the cerebral cortex is thought to be composed of functionally distinct areas, the actual parcellation of area and assignment of function are still highly controversial. An example is the much-studied lateral intraparietal cortex (LIP). Despite the general agreement that LIP plays an important role in visual-oculomotor transformation, it remains(More)
Improving the performance of statistical machine translation is often a significant problem, especially in low language resource scenarios such as Chinese-Mongolian SMT. In this paper, we propose a method to improve the performance of Chinese-Mongolian SMT system using multi-word expressions, which is also a pilot study for this language pair. We extract(More)
The data sparsity and the morphological difference between Chinese and Mongolian are the main problems in Mongolian-Chinese statistical machine translation (SMT). In this paper, we propose a novel method to construct morpheme-based translation model by using Mongolian morpheme as the pivot language. First, we train Mongolian-Morpheme SMT and(More)
Regulating serotonin expression can be used to treat psychotic depression. Mifepristone, a glucocorticoid receptor antagonist, is an effective candidate for psychotic depression treatment. However, the underlying mechanism related to serotonin transporter expression is poorly understood. In this study, we cloned the human brain serotonin transporter into(More)
