BACKGROUND Studies in Western countries have repeatedly shown that women with a history of childhood sexual abuse (CSA) are at increased risk for developing major depression (MD). Would this relationship be found in China? METHOD Three levels of CSA (non-genital, genital, and intercourse) were assessed by self-report in two groups of Han Chinese women:(More)
Product unit neural networks with exponential weights (PUNNs) can provide more powerful internal representation capability than traditional feed-forward neural networks. In this paper, a convergence result of the back-propagation (BP) algorithm for training PUNNs is presented. The monotonicity of the error function in the training iteration process is also(More)
The paper presents a DEM model for simulating dry granular avalanche down an incline. Flow pattern and impact forces on rigid obstacles are considered. Results of the simulations are compared with experimental data reported in the literature. The experiments include granular flow along an inclined channel and three-dimensional free surface flow on an(More)
BACKGROUND Previous studies support Beck's cognitive model of vulnerability to depression. However, the relationship between his cognitive triad and other clinical features and risk factors among those with major depression (MD) has rarely been systematically studied. METHOD The three key cognitive symptoms of worthlessness, hopelessness and helplessness(More)
Among the assorted logic styles used in fostering the integrated circuits, the domino logic styles offers higher speed and smaller transistor count as compared to the static cmos circuits. However the domino logic suffers from lower noise immunity and higher power dissipation due to the problem of charge sharing and sub-threshold leakage currents. In this(More)
Valosin-containing protein (VCP), or p97, is a member of the ATP-binding protein family, and is involved in numerous cellular events, such as, protein degradation, membrane fusion, and chaperone activity. VCP has been demonstrated playing a critical role in non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC) pathogenesis and progression recently. We investigated the(More)
