Systemic administration of cholecystokinin octapeptide (CCK-8) prompts an abrupt increase in circulating levels of oxytocin (OXY) but not vasopressin (VP) in rats. The present study determined whether CCK-8 selectively stimulated OXY-secreting neurons in the hypothalamic supraoptic nucleus of pentobarbital-anesthetized male rats. Antidromically identified(More)
Multivalent molecules with repetitive structures including bacterial capsular polysaccharides and viral capsids elicit antibody responses through B cell receptor (BCR) crosslinking in the absence of T cell help. We report that immunization with these T cell-independent type 2 (TI-2) antigens causes up-regulation of endogenous retrovirus (ERV) RNAs in(More)
This paper presents an improved shadow discriminating method by dividing the cast shadow region into sub regions. We analyze the difference caused by distinct illumination condition for each sub shadow region, and then propose a classification method. We divide cast shadow into deep umbra shadow, shallow umbra shadow and penumbra shadow through gray-level(More)
Growth hormone secretagogue receptor (GHSR) and its ligand, ghrelin, are important modulators in weight control and energy homeostasis. Recently, ghrelin is also involved in experimental colitis, but the role of GHSR in the development of colitis is unclear. The aim was to examine the underlying mechanism of GHSR in IBD development. The temporal expression(More)
A fresh image denoising algorithm using neighboring coefficients of nonsubsampled contourlet transform (NSCT) is presented. NSCT can obtain better results compared to traditional wavelets and contourlet transform due to its outstanding properties. But denoising by NSCT using classical threshold doesn't take account of coefficients correlation. Noise(More)
STP Spanning Tree Protocol as an important method to prevent broadcast storms since the 1985 proposed by Radia Perlem, has been widely used. This paper presents anew technology named DVSP-open flow. Compare STP and the STP improved version, this technology can be can be forward data packets dynamic by using Open Flow support switches. This method separates(More)
This paper presents a cast shadow discriminating method through the edge information of traffic images. In the process, we separate vehicle edges and shadow edges by analyzing their difference on the edge extraction image. In the paper, we will propose a neighbourhood detection algorithm and a line detection algorithm in locating the main curve of shadow(More)
Landmark curves were widely adopted in neuroimaging research for surface correspondence computation and quantified morphometry analysis. However, most of the landmark based morphometry studies only focused on landmark curve shape difference. Here we propose to compute a set of conformal invariant-based shape indices, which are associated with the landmark(More)
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) compatible neural electrodes are important for combining high-resolution electrophysiological measurements with more global MRI mapping of brain activity, which is critical for fundamental neuroscience studies, as well as clinical evaluation and monitoring. Copper is a favorable material to use in MRI because it has magnetic(More)

For binary sequences with period $$p^{n}$$ p n , where $$p$$ p is an odd prime and 2 is a primitive root modulo $$p^{2}$$ p 2 , we present an algorithm which computes the minimum number $$k$$ k so that the $$k$$ k -error linear complexity is not greater than a given constant $$c$$ c . An associated error sequence which gives the $$k$$ k -error linear(More)
