In this contribution, we introduce a novel approach to combine acoustic information and emotional point information for a robust automatic recognition of a speaker’s emotion. Six discrete emotional states are recognized in the work. Firstly, a multi-level model for emotion recognition by acoustic features is presented. The derived features are selected by(More)
ATP-sensitive potassium (K(ATP)) channels couple cellular metabolic status to changes in membrane electrical properties. Caffeine (1,2,7-trimethylxanthine) has been shown to inhibit several ion channels; however, how caffeine regulates K(ATP) channels was not well understood. By performing single-channel recordings in the cell-attached configuration, we(More)
We previously established a congenic mouse strain with TALLYHO/Jng (TH) donor segment on chromosome 6 in a C57BL/6 (B6) background that harbors an obesity quantitative trait locus, tabw2. The B6.TH-tabw2 congenic mice developed increased adiposity that became exacerbated upon feeding a high fat-high sucrose (HFS) diet. To fine map the tabw2, in this study(More)
