The aim of the present study was to investigate cerebral microstructural alterations after single short-term mountain climbing. Voxel-based morphometry (VBM) analysis of gray matter (GM) and white matter (WM) volumes and Tract-Based Spatial Statistics (TBSS) analysis of WM fractional anisotropy (FA) based on MRI images were carried out on 14 mountaineers(More)
OBJECTIVES The irreversible airflow limitation characterised by chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) causes a decrease in the oxygen supply to the brain. The aim of the present study was to investigate brain structural damage in COPD. DESIGN Retrospective case-control study. Patients with COPD and healthy volunteers were recruited. The two groups(More)
Binary wettability patterned surfaces with extremely high wetting contrasts can be found in nature on living creatures. They offer a versatile platform for microfluidic management. In this work, a facile approach to fabricating erasable and rewritable surface patterns with extreme wettability contrasts (superhydrophilic/superhydrophobic) on a TiO2 nanotube(More)
Using a patterned superhydrophobicity/superhydrophilicity template, micropatterned octacalcium phosphate (OCP) has been successfully fabricated on TiO(2) nanotube array surface. The resultant OCP micropattern has been characterized with scanning electron microscopy, optical microscopy, X-ray diffraction and electron probe microanalyzer. It is shown that the(More)

Glutamate excitotoxicity plays an important role in neuronal death after ischemia. However, all clinical trials using glutamate receptor inhibitors have failed. This may be related to the evidence that activation of different subunit of NMDA receptor will induce different effects. Many studies have shown that activation of the intrasynaptic NR2A subunit(More)
