Studies on the degeneration and regeneration of neurons as individual compartments of axons or somata can provide critical information for the clinical therapy of nervous system diseases. A controllable in vitro platform for multiple purposes is key to such studies. In the present study, we describe an integrated microfluidic device designed for achieving(More)
Two series of apigenin [5,7-dihydroxy-2-(4-hydroxyphenyl)-4H-chromen-4-one] derivatives, 3a-3j and 4a-4j, were synthesized. The apigenin and alkyl amines moieties of these compounds were separated by C₂ or C₃ spacers, respectively. The chemical structures of the apigenin derivatives were confirmed using ¹H-NMR, ¹³C-NMR, and electrospray ionization mass(More)
A novel visual saliency detection algorithm using ant colony optimization and spatiotemporal information in compressed videos is proposed in this paper. Firstly, a graph is constructed for each frame in the video by dividing it into blocks and taking the block as nodes. We extract spatial and temporal features of each node directly from the compressed(More)
Recently, high dynamic range (HDR) image which can accurately reflect the real scene prompts increasing interest. For visualizing the HDR images on standard display devices, it is needed to convert it to low dynamic range (LDR) images. This process is named as tone-mapping. Due to the reduction of the dynamic range, evaluating the tone-mapped image becomes(More)
In this paper, we propose a novel graph based spatiotemporal saliency detection method which models eye movements using random walk with restart. The method is executed in superpixel domain and unify low level features and high level features into the framework of random walk with restart. The boundary prior, as a high level feature, is employed to obtain a(More)
