Low-grade glioma (LGG) patients are typically accompanied by varying degrees of intellectual impairments. However, the neural mechanisms underlying intellectual decline have not yet been well understood. The aim of this study is to investigate the relationship between possibly altered functional brain network properties and intellectual decline in LGG(More)
An ensemble is a collective decision-making system which applies a strategy to combine the predictions of learned classifiers to generate its prediction of new instances. Early research has proved that ensemble classifiers in most cases can be more accurate than any single component classifier both empirically and theoretically. Though many ensemble(More)
BACKGROUND Microsurgery is an option of choice for large vestibular schwannomas (VSs). Anatomical and functional preservation of facial nerve (FN) is still a challenge in these surgeries. FNs are often displaced and morphologically changed by large VSs. Preoperative identification of FN with magnetic resonance (MR) diffusion tensor tracking (DTT) and(More)
INTRODUCTION The microRNA, miR-210, is frequently associated with hypoxia induction, and an increase in its levels is often correlated with poor prognosis in many solid tumours. The present study examines the levels of miR-210 in glioma tumours of multiple origins to determine if an association can be established with disease progression. MATERIAL AND(More)
PURPOSE Ketamine is commonly used in pediatric anesthesia but may cause neurodegeneration in young brains. The aim of the study is to use an animal model to characterize the role of microRNA 137 (miR-137) in ketamine-induced neurodegeneration in neonatal hippocampus. METHODS Young Sprague-Dawley Rats (1 month old) was systemically administrated with(More)
