Shanghai, with a population of over 20 million, is the largest mega-city in China. Rapidly increasing industrial and metropolitan emissions have deteriorated its air quality in the past decades, with fine particle pollution as one of the major issues. However, systematic characterization of atmospheric fine particles with advanced measurement techniques has(More)
As part of Campaigns of Air Quality Research in Beijing and Surrounding Region-2008 (CAREBeijing2008), an Aerodyne High-Resolution Time-of-Flight Aerosol Mass Spectrometer (HR-ToF-AMS) was deployed in urban Beijing to characterize submicron aerosol particles during the time of 2008 Beijing Olympic Games and Paralympic Games (24 July to 20 September 2008).(More)
Phencyclidine (PCP) is an antagonist of the NMDA subtype of glutamate receptor. PCP treatment induces psychosis in normal humans, which provides a valuable model of schizophrenia. PCP administration also models some of the symptoms of schizophrenia in experimental animals. NMDA hypofunction has been hypothesized to explain these schizophrenia-like symptoms.(More)
The Pearl River Delta (PRD) region in South China is one of the most economically developed regions in China, but it is also noted for its severe air pollution due to industrial/metropolitan emissions. In order to continuously improve the understanding and quantification of air pollution in this region, an intensive campaign was executed in PRD during(More)
