As a new concept that emerged in the middle of 1990’s, data mining can help researchers gain both novel and deep insights and can facilitate unprecedented understanding of large biomedical datasets. Data mining can uncover new biomedical and healthcare knowledge for clinical and administrative decision making as well as generate scientific hypotheses from(More)
BACKGROUND The objective of this study is to conduct a systematic review of applications of data-mining techniques in the field of diabetes research. METHOD We searched the MEDLINE database through PubMed. We initially identified 31 articles by the search, and selected 17 articles representing various data-mining methods used for diabetes research. Our(More)
The finger length ratio (2D:4D) is a biomarker for the prenatal levels of testosterone. The prenatal effects of testosterone on the development of brain hemispheres are considered as a key factor in the etiology of left-handedness. We tested whether 2D:4D correlates with the type of handedness in males (18 right-handers and 18 left-handers). Right hand(More)
The effects of CB1 receptor agonist HU-210 and cannabinoid CB1 receptor antagonist SR 141716A on nociception of male Wistar rats with a model of depression (bilateral olfactory bulbectomy, OBX) were studied. HU-210 (5 ñg) and SR 141716A (3 ñg) were acutely microinjected i.c.v. on the developed depression background. Nociception was examined as applied(More)
