Electro-acupuncture (EA) is believed to be effective for alleviating motor symptoms in patients with Parkinson's disease. In a rat hemiparkinsonian model induced by unilateral transection of the medial forebrain bundle (MFB), the effects of EA stimulation were investigated. EA stimulation at a high frequency (100 Hz) significantly reduced(More)
Accumulating evidence indicates that oxidative stress plays a critical role in Parkinson's disease (PD). Our previous work has shown that 100 Hz electro-acupuncture (EA) stimulation at ZUSANLI (ST36) and SANYINJIAO (SP6) protects neurons in the substantia nigra pars compacta from 1-methyl-4-phenyl-1,2,3,6-tetrahydropyridine (MPTP) toxicity in male C57BL/6(More)
Depression has been associated with reduced expression of brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) in the hippocampus. Genetic association studies of the BDNF Val66Met polymorphism (rs6265) in geriatric depression have produced inconsistent results. A meta-analysis of studies was conducted to compare the frequency of the BDNF Val66Met variant between cases(More)
Uniform suppression of fat signal is desired in clinical applications. Based on phase differences introduced by different chemical shift frequencies, Dixon method and its variations are used as alternatives of fat saturation methods, which are sensitive to B0 inhomogeneities. Iterative Decomposition of water and fat with Echo Asymmetry and Least squares(More)
Objective: Extracting on the medical terminology system will associate TCM with intelligent system and propel TCM informatization. Method: Extracting the term relation by artificial drawing and comparative analysis with UMLS. Results: Obtained 26 kinds of term relations on Nomenclature Relations of Conceptual System in Fundamental Theory of TCM and enriched(More)
