Parkinson’s disease (PD) is pathologically characterized by selective loss of dopaminergic neurons in the midbrain and the existence of intracellular protein inclusions termed Lewy bodies, largely composed of α-synuclein. Genetic studies have revealed that rare point mutations in the gene encoding α-synuclein including A30P, A53T, and E46K are associated(More)
—The Soldier Lower Extremity Exoskeleton (SLEE) is designed based on the biological characteristics of the soldier movement. It is a wearable intelligent device that integrates human body with exoskeleton in order to improve the soldier's ability of load-carrying. The virtual prototype model in the UG was built, the FEA model was built, and the strength is(More)
Children with autism spectrum disorder often demonstrate unusual behavioral responses to sensory stimuli (i.e., sensory features). To manage everyday activities, caregivers may implement strategies to address these features during family routines. However, investigation of specific strategies used by caregivers is limited by the lack of empirically(More)
Parkinson's disease (PD) is a major age-related neurodegenerative disorder characterized by loss of dopaminergic neurons in the substantia nigra par compacta (SNpc) and accumulation of aggregated alpha-synuclein in brain areas. Rotenone is a neurotoxin that is routinely used to model PD, thus to help us understand the mechanisms of neural death.(More)
