Well aligned TiO2 nanotube arrays have been synthesized via anodization in an NH4F and ethylene glycol electrolyte; the resulting carbon-entrained films were treated by oxygen and argon microwave plasma. It was found that as-prepared amorphous TiO2 nanotubes can be easily crystallized into anatase at temperature lower than 150 degrees C. Carbon can be(More)
Cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) and 5-lipoxygenase (5-LO) are important factors in tumorigenesis and malignant progression; however, studies of their roles in glioblastoma have produced conflicting results. To define the frequencies of COX-2 and 5-LO expression and their correlation with clinicopathological features and prognosis, tumor tissues from 76 cases of(More)
A novel method of studying molecular interactions is introduced. It is a method based on the framework of a two-dimensional (2D) infrared (IR) correlation spectroscopy technique with a new data pretreatment strategy. In this method, an additional external perturbation stimulates the system to cause some selective changes in the state, order, and(More)
Sleep loss can alter extrinsic, task-related functional MRI signals involved in attention, memory, and executive function. However, the effects of sleep loss on brain structure have not been well characterized. Recent studies with patients with sleep disorders and animal models have demonstrated reduction of regional brain structure in the hippocampus and(More)
Ependymoma with cartilaginous metaplasia with or without bone formation is exceedingly rare. Only eight cases have been reported in the literature. We report a case of ependymoma with cartilaginous and osseous metaplasia in a 5-year-old boy. Microscopically, the tumor was composed of neoplastic ependymal tissue and mature cartilage and bone.(More)
In this paper, a new blind symbol synchronization algorithm is presented for orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing (OFDM) systems. The proposed algorithm extracts the timing which is not disturbed by delay spread within the guard interval by utilizing the cyclic prefix. A new timing function is introduced. By detecting the down-turn transition timing(More)
In the present study, the molecular chain changes and structural transitions of partially hydrolyzed poly(vinyl alcohol) (PVA) having a 12 mol% acetate unit were analyzed by moving-window two-dimensional (MW2D) correlation infrared spectroscopy combined with differential scanning calorimetry and thermogravimetric analysis. The results show the(More)
INTRODUCTION This study investigated how operation complexity and type affect Chinese individuals' performance of simulated spaceflight operations under conditions of sleep deprivation and confinement (SDC). METHODS There were 20 male volunteers who were randomly divided into 2 groups: the SDC group (N = 8) and the control group (N = 12). During the 72-h(More)
Atypical teratoid/rhabdoid tumors (AT/RTs) are rare, highly malignant central nervous system tumors that predominantly occur in young children. A 22-year-old woman presented with a 4-year history of relapsing tinnitus and gradual hearing loss. Neuroimaging revealed an enhanced intrinsic left internal auditory canal mass. The patient underwent radiotherapy(More)
