In this study human motor cortical activity was recorded with a customized micro-ECoG grid during individual finger movements. The quality of the recorded neural signals was characterized in the frequency domain from three different perspectives: (1) coherence between neural signals recorded from different electrodes, (2) modulation of neural signals by(More)
BACKGROUND To measure the anterior and posterior ocular biometric characteristics concurrently and to determine the relationship between the iris and choroid in healthy Chinese subjects. METHODS A total of 148 subjects (270 eyes) were enrolled in this cross-section study. The anterior and posterior ocular biometric characteristics were measured(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to evaluate changes in choroidal thickness (CT) in advanced or late-stage primary angle closure glaucoma (PACG) patients who had undergone trabeculectomy. METHODS This study included 23 eyes with PACG that required trabeculectomy. Enhanced depth imaging optical coherence tomography was used to measure CT before and 7(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the application of the Ologen implant compared to mitomycin C (MMC) on the outcome of trabeculectomy and to examine the balance of risks and benefits. METHODS A systematic literature search (Pubmed, Embase, the Cochrane Library, and the Chinese Biomedicine Database) was performed. Randomized controlled trials comparing the Ologen(More)
This paper proposes a model to calculate the average speed of transmission of intervehicle communication (IVC) messages in a general traffic stream on highways in the early stage of deploying distributed traffic information systems (DTIS). The model helps explain the relationship between average IVC message speed and traffic parameters such as equipped(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess whether the incidence of systemic adverse events differs between those who used bevacizumab and those who used ranibizumab in the treatment of age-related macular degeneration (AMD). METHODS A systematic literature search was conducted to identify randomised controlled trials (RCTs) comparing the use of intravitreal bevacizumab with(More)
Sickle cell disease affects many organ systems, but one of the major morbidities is brain disease, especially stroke. In this paper, the etiology, diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of clinical stroke, as well as so-called "silent stroke," are examined. Risk factors, diagnostic tools, and data from prevention and treatment studies as well as issues(More)
Clinical trials have demonstrated the beneficial effects of Peony-Glycyrrhiza Decoction (PGD) in alleviating antipsychotic-induced hyperprolactinemia (hyperPRL) in schizophrenic patients. In previous experiment, PGD suppressed prolactin (PRL) level in MMQ cells, involving modulating the expression of D2 receptor (DRD2) and dopamine transporter (DAT). In the(More)
BACKGROUND Recent voxel-based morphometry (VBM) studies have found gray matter (GM) abnormalities in primary focal dystonia (PFD) and yielded inconsistent results. AIM Our aim is to investigate consistent GM changes in PFD and to identify whether different subtypes of PFD share a common pathophysiological basis revealed by structural abnormalities. (More)
BACKGROUND To evaluate the peripapillary choroidal thickness of a healthy Chinese population, and to determine its influencing factors. METHODS A total of 76 healthy volunteers (76 eyes) without ophthalmic or systemic symptoms were enrolled. Choroidal scans (360-degree 3.4 mm diameter peripapillary circle scans) were obtained for all eyes using enhanced(More)
