The lexical constituency model: some implications of research on Chinese for general theories of reading.
TLDR
The implemented model simulates the time course of graphic, phonological, and semantic priming effects, including immediate graphic facilitation followed by graphic inhibition with simultaneous phonological facilitation, a pattern unique to the Chinese writing system.
Assimilation and accommodation patterns in ventral occipitotemporal cortex in learning a second writing system
TLDR
English learners of Chinese show an accommodation pattern, in which the reading network accommodates the new writing system by adding neural resources that support its specific graphic requirements, and Chinese speakers show an assimilation pattern, which includes procedures sufficient for the graphic demands of L2 without major change.
Understanding the toxicity of carbon nanotubes.
TLDR
Recent investigations into the basis of CNT toxicity carried out by the team and by other laboratories are highlighted, highlighting several important factors that explain the disparities in the experimental results of nanotoxicity, such as impurities, amorphous carbon, surface charge, shape, length, agglomeration, and layer numbers.
ERP evidence for the time course of graphic, phonological, and semantic information in Chinese meaning and pronunciation decisions.
TLDR
Two words that varied in their relationship were presented sequentially to Chinese readers who made meaning and pronunciation decisions, and event related potentials recordings made from the onset of the 2nd word suggested a temporal unfolding of graphic, phonological, and semantic effects.
Evidence for neural accommodation to a writing system following learning
TLDR
FMRI scans taken during passive viewing of Chinese characters showed activation in brain regions that partially overlap the regions found in studies of skilled Chinese readers, but typically not found in alphabetic readers.
Multiple roles of cadmium in cell death and survival.
Th1/Th2 Functional Imbalance After Acute Myocardial Infarction: Coronary Arterial Inflammation or Myocardial Inflammation
TLDR
Th1/Th2 functional imbalance exists in both coronary arterial inflammation and myocardial inflammation processes and the up-regulation of Th1 cell-functions may participate in the immune-mediated ventricular remodeling after AMI.
