An approach for Web-based Mathematics Education (WME) is considered. It aims to establish a framework to support authoring of dynamic and interactive mathematics education pages, end-user access through regular Web browsers, and supplying mathematical and educational capabilities through interoperable WME servers. The WME architecture we envision builds on(More)
Senescence-accelerated mouse prone 8 (SAMP8) is considered as a useful animal model for age-related learning and memory impairments. Hippocampus, a critical brain region associated with cognitive decline during normal aging and various neurodegenerative diseases, appeared a series of abnormalities in SAMP8. To investigate the molecular mechanisms underlying(More)
Reported is an approach for <i>Web-based Mathematics Education</i> (WME). The WME framework is a distributed system that aims to create a <i>Web for mathematics education</i>. Components of the WME framework include the <i>Mathematics Education Markup Language</i> (MeML) for page markup, regular Web servers to deliver pages, WME Page Processors to enable(More)
Internet Accessible Mathematical Computation (IAMC) is a distributed framework to supply mathematical computing powers over the Internet. Presented are conceptual and experimental work on the IAMC architecture, a client prototype (<i>Dragonfly</i>), client GUI, a server prototype (<i>Starfish</i>), the Mathematical Computation Protocol (MCP), mathematical(More)
Carvedilol, a nonselective β-adrenoreceptor antagonist, protects against myocardial injury induced by acute myocardium infarction (AMI). The mechanisms underlying the anti-fibrotic effects of carvedilol are unknown. Recent studies have revealed the critical role of microRNAs (miRNAs) in a variety of cardiovascular diseases. This study investigated whether(More)
—The Web-based Mathematics Education framework (WME) aims to create a Web for mathematics education. WME empowers mathematics teachers, learning content developers, as well as dynamic mathematics computation and education service providers, to deliver an unprecedented mathematics learning environment to students and educators. Main WME components include(More)
The Web-based Mathematics Education (WME) framework aims to create a Web for mathematics education where education content and support services are interoperable on the Web and can be created, deployed, and maintained on a distributed basis. To test the feasibility, practicality, and effectiveness of WME as a way to enhance mathematics education in schools,(More)
Cyclins/retinoblastoma protein (pRb) pathway participates in cardiomyocyte hypertrophy. MicroRNAs (miRNAs), the endogenous small non-coding RNAs, were recognized to play significant roles in cardiac hypertrophy. But, it remains unknown whether cyclin/Rb pathway is modulated by miRNAs during cardiac hypertrophy. This study investigates the potential role of(More)
The Internet Accessible Mathematical Computation (IAMC) framework aims to make it easy to supply mathematical computing powers over the Internet/Web. The protocol-based IAMC framework enables developers to create interoperable clients and servers easily and independently. Presented are conceptual and experimental work on the IAMC framework architecture and(More)
