BACKGROUND We previously reported an association between infant wheezing and residence < 100 m from stop-and-go bus and truck traffic. The use of a proximity model, however, may lead to exposure misclassification. OBJECTIVE Results obtained from a land use regression (LUR) model of exposure to truck and bus traffic are compared with those obtained with a(More)
A new digital control solution to motion control problems is proposed. It is based on a unique active disturbance rejection concept, where the disturbances are estimated using an extended state observer (ESO) and compensated in each sampling period. The dynamic compensation reduces the motion system to approximately a double integrator which can be easily(More)
INTRODUCTION Neuroimaging studies have reported differences in brain structure and function between homosexual and heterosexual men. The neural basis for homosexual orientation, however, is still unknown. AIM This study characterized the association of homosexual preference with measures of fractional amplitude of low-frequency fluctuation (fALFF) and(More)

Here we used fMRI to study the neural responses to disgust in homosexual and heterosexual men to investigate that issue. Thirty-two healthy male volunteers (sixteen homosexual and sixteen heterosexual) were scanned while viewing alternating(More)
BACKGROUND Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) are typically used as antidepressants. Clinically significant SSRI-induced thyroid dysfunction is rare. CASE We report a case of hyperthyroidism induced by fluoxetine in a female patient with major depressive disorder. Her thyroid profiles indicated hyperthyroidism after a 10-week treatment with(More)
This study presents a case of severe water intoxication in a female patient with delusional infestation. Self-induced excessive water ingestion is a rare medical condition, which has not been reported in patients with delusional infestation yet. The patient in this case study was a 60-year-old Chinese woman, who was admitted to our hospital because of a(More)
BACKGROUND Several cross-cultural studies have suggested that emotions are influenced by the cultural background. Emotional reactions to International Affective Picture System (IAPS) images were compared between Chinese and American young adults. METHODS 120 Chinese undergraduates (53 females, 67 males; aged 18-25 years) were enrolled at Zhejiang(More)
BACKGROUND The prevention and treatment of Microwave-caused cardiovascular injury remains elusive. This study investigated the cardiovascular protective effects of compound Chinese medicine "Kang Fu Ling" (KFL) against high power microwave (HPM)-induced myocardial injury and the role of the mitochondrial permeability transition pore (mPTP) opening in KFL(More)
