Most adults have more experience in identifying faces of their own race than in identifying faces from another race, and thus may be considered as own-race face experts. This effect was investigated by recording and analyzing ERPs as well as induced gamma oscillations. The race modulation occurred post the stage of structural processing revealed by N170.(More)
Apolipoprotein D (apoD) is a lipoprotein-associated glycoprotein that is increased in the hippocampus and cerebrospinal fluid of patients with Alzheimer's disease (AD), which implies that apoD might be involved in the pathogenesis of AD. We used polymerase chain reaction-restriction fragment length polymorphism (PCR-RFLP) and DNA sequencing techniques to(More)
INTRODUCTION The purpose of this study was to compare the influences of different implant modalities on orthodontic microimplants and surrounding tissues biomechanically and histologically. METHODS Fifty-six titanium alloy microimplants placed on the buccal side of the maxillae and the mandibles in 2 dogs were divided into 2 groups of 28; one group of(More)
AIM AND METHODS To observe the antagonist effect of ginsenosides upon excitatory neurotoxicity of glutamate in rat hippocampal slices, and to observe the inhibitory and facilitated effects of ginsenosides upon glutamate release from cultured mice cortical neurons and upon glutamate uptake by cultured astrocytes, respectively, during simulated ischemia, in(More)

To be aware of the security in fixing the spine through posterior approach with instrumentation, a study of the regional anatomy of the pedicle was done by measuring various parameters in 51 thoraco-lumbar (T-9 to L-3) specimens, including the thickness, height, and length of pedicle, the angles made by line of the pedicle axis with both the sagittal and(More)
In order to shed light on individuals' financial and social investment decisions in groups, I conduct a laboratory experiment in which subjects play a variant of a public goods game without free-riding incentives. With no private information, the prospect of investment in the experiment involves self-evaluation of uncertain personal and group types, which(More)
PURPOSE To investigate shifting of the contact center over the surfaces of 2 opposing bones of the distal radioulnar joint during forearm rotation. METHODS We recruited 8 volunteers and used their right wrists. Serial computed tomography scans were obtained with the forearm at neutral position and 6 other positions of forearm rotation. We reconstructed(More)
PURPOSE Distal radius and scaphoid fractures commonly occur after a fall with the hand outstretched and wrist hyperextended. We investigated contact characteristics of the radiocarpal joint in neutral position, hyperextension, and hyperextension combined with radial deviation in vivo. METHODS Eight volunteers without a known history of wrist injury were(More)
Osteoarthritis (OA) is one of the leading generators of musculo-skeletal pain and the main cause of disability. 1 It has been considered an inflammatory disease with low grade inflammation affecting the synovium, cartilage and subchondral bone. 2 To date, there is no disease-modifying OA drug. 3 A few studies have evaluated the efficacy of fish oil in the(More)
