The serotonin system and NMDA receptors (NMDARs) in prefrontal cortex (PFC) are both critically involved in the regulation of cognition and emotion under normal and pathological conditions; however, the interactions between them are essentially unknown. Here we show that serotonin, by activating 5-HT(1A) receptors, inhibited NMDA receptor-mediated ionic and(More)
Abnormal serotonin-glutamate interaction in prefrontal cortex (PFC) is implicated in the pathophysiology of many mental disorders, including schizophrenia and depression. However, the mechanisms by which this interaction occurs remain unclear. Our previous study has shown that activation of 5-HT(1A) receptors inhibits N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptor(More)
HIV has become one of the most devastating pathogens in human history. Despite fast progress in HIV-related basic research, antiretroviral therapy (ART) remains the most effective method to save AIDS patients' lives. Unfortunately, ART cannot be universally accessed, especially in developing countries, due to the lack of effective treatment monitoring(More)
The cholinergic system is crucial for cognitive processes and the deficient acetylcholine (ACh) function has been implicated in Alzheimer's disease (AD). Inhibitors of acetylcholinesterase (AChE), which act to enhance cholinergic function by prolonging the action of endogenously released ACh, have been used as the major therapy of AD. To understand the(More)
A new synthetic methodology for cationic glycolipids using p-aminophenyl-α-D-mannopyranoside (PAPM) and p-aminophenyl-α-D-galactopyranoside (PAPG) with spacer in between the quaternary nitrogen atom and the sugar unit is developed. In addition, a new class of neutral glycolipid conjugates, such as PAPM-lipids or PAPG-lipids conjugates was also synthesized(More)

This study documents a novel natural experiment in the early 20 th century China called the " Temple Destruction Movement (TDM), " where local governments were required to take over the assets of Buddha and Taoist temples to support local modern schooling. We show that before the TDM, the prior stock of average temple assets was not correlated with various(More)
