Measuring the complexity of mega construction projects in China—A fuzzy analytic network process analysis
Abstract Mega construction projects in China are usually very complicated in nature, thus evaluating and understanding these complexities are critical to the success of these megaprojects. However,Expand
Decoding the Neuroanatomical Basis of Reading Ability: A Multivoxel Morphometric Study
Three uncorrelated components of reading ability were identified: phonological decoding, form-sound association, and naming speed; naming speed was correlated with intelligence and processing speed, and some of the regions that were predictive of naming speed also predicted these general cognitive abilities.

Cloning and characterization of a plastidic glycerol 3-phosphate dehydrogenase cDNA from Dunaliella salina.
It is suggested that the phosphoserine phosphatase domain functions as glycerol 3-phosphatase and that, consequently, NAD+ -dependent GPDH from D. salina can catalyze the step from dihydroxyacetone phosphate to Glycerol directly directly. Expand

The current data provide clear evidence that AFB1, ZEN and DON contamination of feed ingredients and complete feeds in different Province in China is serious and differs over past 3-year. Expand
Intrauterine growth restriction alters the metabonome of the serum and jejunum in piglets.
It is indicated that IUGR piglets have a distinctive metabolic status compared to normal weight piglets, including changes in lipogenesis, lipid oxidation, energy supply and utilization, amino acid and protein metabolism, and antioxidant ability; these changes could contribute to impaired growth and jejunal function.

Metabolomic analysis of the response of growing pigs to dietary l-arginine supplementation
It is suggested that dietary arginine supplementation alters the catabolism of fat and amino acids in the whole body, enhances protein synthesis in skeletal muscle, and modulates intestinal microbial metabolism in growing pigs. Expand
Examination of Neural Systems Sub-Serving Facebook “Addiction”
The findings indicated that at least at the examined levels of addiction-like symptoms, technology-related “addictions” share some neural features with substance and gambling addictions, but more importantly they also differ from such addictions in their brain etiology and possibly pathogenesis, as related to abnormal functioning of the inhibitory-control brain system.

The Gambler’s Fallacy Is Associated with Weak Affective Decision Making but Strong Cognitive Ability
It is found that individuals’ use of the gambler’s fallacy strategy was positively correlated with their general intelligence and executive function, but negatively correlation with their affective decision making capacities, as measured by the Iowa Gambling Task. Expand
Sex Modulates the Associations Between the COMT Gene and Personality Traits
The results supported the role of the catechol-O-methyltransferase gene in personality traits for males and contributed to the growing literature on sex differences in gene–behavior connections. Expand
Gray and white matter structures in the midcingulate cortex region contribute to body mass index in Chinese young adults
It is found that decision-making ability (as assessed by the Iowa Gambling Task) mediated the association between the structure of the MCC (a region responsible for impulse control and decision making) and BMI, shedding light on the structural neural basis of weight variations. Expand
