Cardiac diffusion tensor magnetic resonance imaging (DT-MRI) is noise sensitive, and the noise can induce numerous systematic errors in subsequent parameter calculations. This paper proposes a sparse representation-based method for denoising cardiac DT-MRI images. The method first generates a dictionary of multiple bases according to the features of the(More)
Cytoplasmic male sterility (CMS) is a maternally inherited trait characterized by the inability to produce functional pollen. The CMS-associated protein Orf507 (reported as Orf456 in previous researches) was previously identified as a candidate gene for mediating male sterility in pepper. Here, we performed yeast two-hybrid analysis to screen for(More)
This work investigates the effects of oxidative stress due to exhaustive training on uncoupling protein 2 (UCP2) and Bcl-2/Bax in rat skeletal muscles. A total of 18 Sprague-Dawley female rats were randomly divided into three groups: the control group (CON), the trained control group (TC), and the exhaustive trained group (ET). Malondialdehyde (MDA),(More)
In this paper, a new Chinese character recognition (CCR) approach is proposed based on the fuzzy clustering analysis theory. Chinese characters (CCs) have various similar radicals and stroke components, which make it difficult to recognize features in the CCR process. At the same time, the recognition accuracy and the efficiency are lower when the objects(More)
The influence of intrathecal injection of oxytocin (OT), anti-OT serum (AOTS) and naloxone on pain threshold and electroacupuncture (EA) analgesia in rats was investigated. The tail-flick induced by potassium iontophoresis was used to measure the pain threshold. The increase in pain threshold was observed within 70 min after OT injection (100 ng), and it(More)
A fuzzy clustering bispectrum estimation approach is proposed in this paper and applied on the rolling element bearing fault recognition. The method combines the basic higher order spectrum theory and fuzzy clustering technique in data mining. At first, all the bispectrum estimation results of the training samples and test samples are taken binarization(More)
With the use of potassium iontophoresis induced tail-flick for measuring the pain threshold, the effects of injecting neurotensin (NT), naloxone (NX), anti-metenkephalin serum (AMEKS), anti-beta-endorphin serum (AEPS) and anti-dynorphin A1-13 serum (ADYNS) into periaqueductal gray (PAG) on electroacupuncture (EA) analgesia in rats were investigated. NT(More)
1. Using 11 C-Pittsburgh Compound B (PiB) positron emission tomography (PET), Alzheimer's disease pathology was found in one-fifth of patients with post-stroke dementia. 2. Patients with Alzheimer's disease pathology had a more progressive cognitive decline over 3 years after stroke or transient ischaemic attack. 3. In patients with post-stroke dementia,(More)
