It has been known that environmental enrichment leads to better learning and memory in mice. However, the molecular mechanisms are not known. In this study, we used the 10th-12th of the NR2B transgenic (Tg) lines, in which the NMDA receptor function is enhanced via the NR2B subunit transgene in neurons of the forebrain, to test the hypothesis of the(More)
A metal-resistant and phosphate-solubilising bacterium, designated as strain D414T, was isolated from heavy metal (Pb, Cd, Cu and Zn)-polluted paddy soils at the surrounding area of Dabao Mountain Mine in Southeast China. The minimum inhibitory concentrations of heavy metals for strain D414T were 2000 mg L−1 (Cd), 800 mg L−1 (Pb), 150 mg L−1 (Cu) and 2500(More)
Iron plaques can prevent the uptake of heavy metals on the root surface of wetland plants. The Fe and Mn oxides produced by microorganisms are major Fe/Mn-oxidizing agents in the environment. This study is the first to investigate the influence of Fe/Mn-oxidizing bacteria on Fe/Mn plaque formation and the uptake of Cd and As on rice tissues. The oxide(More)
We compare and integrate two complementary and intersecting approaches to causality. The first is DEf01 Wy (Eff and Dow 2009) in which externally network-­‐related facts or dependent and independent variables are examined as to how societies are already influenced and equipped in their behavior – i.e., preconditioned by externals in their ancestries,(More)
The two-stage least-squares inferential statistics (2SLS-IS) scripts in R provided here help to discriminate the quality of results in regression models, improving on prototypes by Dow (2007) and Eff and Dow (2009) that implemented a new two-stage least squares (2SLS) standard for regression models with missing data imputation and controls for(More)
