— Even with the wide adaptation of resolution enhancement techniques in sub-wavelength lithography, the geometry of the fabricated interconnect is still quite different from the drawn one. Existing Layout Parasitic Extraction (LPE) tools assume perfect geometry, thus introducing significant error in the extracted parasitic models, which in turn cases(More)
It is well known that n-detection test sets are effective to detect unmodeled defects and improve the defect coverage. However, in these sets, each of the n-detection test patterns has the same importance on the overall test set performance. In other words, the test pattern that detects a fault for the first time plays the same important role as the test(More)
The most challenging problem in target detection and classi£cation is the extraction of a robust feature vector which can effectively represent a speci£c type of target. The use of the seismic signals in unattended ground sensor systems brings new challenges to the problem because of the complexity of the seismic waves and their highly dependency on the(More)
Cinnamic acid sugar ester derivatives (CASEDs) are a class of natural product with one or several phenylacrylic moieties linked with the non-anomeric carbon of a glycosyl skeleton part through ester bonds. Their notable anti-depressant and brains protective activities have made them a topic of great interest over the past several decades. In particular the(More)
The hallmark symptoms of schizophrenia include profound disturbances in thought, perception, cognition etc., which negatively impacts an individual's quality of life. Current antipsychotic drugs are not effective in treating all symptoms of this disorder, and often cause severe movement and metabolic side effects. Consequently, there remains a strong(More)
As a classical herb pair in clinics of traditional Chinese medicine, Curcumae Rhizoma-Sparganii Rhizoma (HP CR-SR) is used for activating blood circulation to remove blood stasis. The essential components in HP CR-SR and its single herbs were comparatively analyzed using gas chromatography-mass spectrometry data. 66, 22, and 54 components in volatile oils(More)
Component fingerprints are a recognized method used worldwide to evaluate the quality of traditional Chinese medicines (TCMs). To foster the strengths and circumvent the weaknesses of the fingerprint technique in TCM, spectrum-effect relationships would complementarily clarify the nature of pharmacodynamic effects in the practice of TCM. The application of(More)
The activity of G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs) is intricately regulated by a range of intracellular proteins, including G protein-coupled kinases (GRKs) and arrestins. Understanding the effects of ligands on these signaling pathways could provide insights into disease pathophysiologies and treatment. The dopamine D2 receptor is a GPCR strongly(More)
