Deep brain stimulation (DBS) is an emerging treatment of epilepsy. Anterior nucleus of the thalamus (ANT) is considered to be an attractive target due to its close connection to the limbic structures and wide regions of neocortex. In this study, we examined the effect of unilateral high frequency stimulation (HFS) of the ANT on amygdala-kindled seizures in(More)
Given the tremendous success of deep brain stimulation (DBS) for the treatment of movement and neuropsychiatric disorders, clinicians have begun to open up to the possible use of electrical stimulation for the treatment of patients with uncontrolled seizures. DBS of various neural targets has been investigated in clinical studies and animal studies,(More)
Brain stimulation with low-frequency is emerging as an alternative treatment for refractory epilepsy. The anterior nucleus thalamus (ANT) is thought to be a key structure in the circuits of seizure generation and propagation. The present study aimed to investigate the effects of low frequency stimulation (LFS) targeting ANT on amygdala-kindled seizures in(More)
Glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) is the most common primary brain tumor in adults. Median survival from the time of diagnosis is less than a year, with less than 5% of patients surviving 5 years. These tumors are thought to arise through two different pathways. Primary GBMs represent de novo tumors, while secondary GBMs represent the malignant progression of(More)
Non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC) is one of the most common and lethal malignant tumours worldwide with a poor 5-year survival rate. Recent studies indicated that miRNAs have been involved in the tumorigenic driver pathways in NSCLC, but the relevant molecular mechanisms are not well-understood. In this study, we investigated the biological functions and(More)
Microarray transcriptome analyses of fetal mouse liver did not detect circadian expression rhythms of clock genes or clock-controlled genes, although some rhythmic transcripts that were likely not driven by endogenous cellular clocks were identified. This finding reveals a key distinction between the circadian oscillators in fetal and adult mouse livers.(More)
Recently, an international genome-wide association study (GWAS) additionally found rs597668 near EXOC3L2/BLOC1S3/MARK4 was a new genome-wide significance locus associated with late-onset Alzheimer's disease (LOAD) in Caucasians. Follow-up replication studies were conducted almost exclusively in Caucasians, and the effects of the risk locus in other(More)
Drug resistance in epilepsy is considered as a complicated and multifactorial problem. Poor penetration of antiepileptic drugs (AEDs) across blood-brain barrier (BBB) into the brain, which results in insufficient level of the drugs at the targeted brain region, has been discussed as one mechanism contributing to pharmacoresistance of epilepsies. Therefore,(More)
Through-wall-radar imaging is of interest for mapping the wall layout of buildings and for the detection of stationary targets within buildings. In this paper, we present an easy single-side two-location spotlight imaging method for both wall layout mapping and stationary target detection by utilizing multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO)(More)
In utero electroporation (IUE) is commonly used to study cortical development of cerebrum by downregulating or overexpressing genes of interest in neural progenitor cells (NPCs) of small mammals. However, exogenous plasmids are lost or diluted over time. Furthermore, gene knockdown based on short-hairpin RNAs may exert nonspecific effects that lead to(More)
