Chronic stress, as a risk factor for cardiovascular diseases, has been reported to result in elevated plasma neuropeptide Y (NPY) and be highly associated with abnormal cardiac autonomic function. This study aimed to explore the effect of NPY on the chronic stress-induced abnormal baroreceptor reflex sensitivity (BRS). Seven types of recognized stressors(More)
Changes in membrane lipid composition play multiple roles in plant adaptation and survival in the face of chilling and freezing damage. The ultra-performance liquid chromatography/quadrupole-TOF-MS (UPLC/Q-TOF-MS)-based approach was developed for investigating the lipid changes during cold exposure in Stephanodiscus sp. followed by multivariate statistical(More)
Both diabetic cardiomyopathy (DCM) and baroreflex dysfunction independently contribute to sudden cardiac death (SCD), however the inherent connections between them under diabetic state remains unclear. As microRNAs (miRNAs) have been reported to participate in various physiological and pathological processes, we presume they may also be involved in DCM and(More)
In undeveloped areas around the world, many traditional meters need to be upgraded. Compared with replacing the mounted meters with high-cost modern ones, it is a better choice to upgrade them with new technologies. In this paper, an automatic reading system of the traditional household meter is designed on the basis of image processing and advanced DSP(More)
PURPOSES The objectives of this paper are to study the impact of low level isopropyl alcohol exposure on blood pressure and to explore its potential mechanism. METHODS This cross-sectional study was based on a prospective occupational cohort in south China, which focusing on occupational risk factors related cardiovascular health problems. A total of 283(More)
Keyboard is a major kind of input device for computer and intelligent device, especially those portable equipment. Aiming at more intelligent human-computer interaction, a virtual keyboard system is presented on the basis of laser and image processing. The virtual keyboard consists of infrared laser module, keyboard pattern projector, embedded system and a(More)
