Auditory and vestibular functions of otolithic organs vary among vertebrate taxa. The saccule has been considered a major hearing organ in many fishes. However, little is known about the auditory role of the lagena in fishes. In this study we analyzed directional and frequency responses from single lagenar fibers of Dormitator latifrons to linear(More)
It is unknown whether the fish utricle contributes to directional hearing. Here, we report response properties of single utricular fibers in a teleost fish (Dormitator latifrons) to linear accelerations at various stimulus frequencies and axes. Characteristic frequencies ranged from ≤50–400 Hz (median=80 Hz), and best frequencies shifted from 50 to 250 Hz(More)
It is not known to what extent the entire saccule contributes to overall hearing sensitivity in any fish species. Here we report directional and frequency sensitivity in a teleost fish (Dormitator latifrons) and effects of unilateral and bilateral removal of saccular otoliths on its hearing sensitivity. The fish had different hearing thresholds in the(More)
In this randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, single-centre study, 80 patients (American Society of Anesthesiologists physical status I-III) received postoperative single-injection local infiltration analgesia (SLIA), continuous local infiltration analgesia (CLIA) or placebo (control group). Intravenous patient-controlled morphine was used as rescue(More)
We have investigated the temperature dependence of photoluminescence ~PL! properties of a number of self-organized InAs/GaAs heterostructures with InAs layer thickness ranging from 0.5 to 3 ML. The temperature dependence of InAs exciton emission and linewidth was found to display a significant difference when the InAs layer thickness is smaller or larger(More)
Gentamicin sulfate sustained-release tablet remaining-floating in stomach (G-HBS) was developed based on the hydrodynamically balanced system. The dissolution rate of G-HBS was determined by rotary basket method (100 r/min, 37 +/- 0.5 degrees C, 0.1 mol/L HCl). The release characteristics of G-HBS showed basically first order kinetics with the dissolution(More)
We performed this meta-analysis to investigate and determine the role of metformin on serum adiponectin levels in Type 2 diabetes (T2DM) patients. Embase, Web of Science, Cochrane Library PubMed, and China National Knowledge Infrastructure (CNKI) were thoroughly searched. Eligible human studies assessing the association between serum adiponectin levels and(More)
We have studied the temperature-dependent carrier transfer processes in InGaN/GaN multi-quantum-well light-emitting devices using various optical techniques such as photoluminescence, electroluminescence, and photoluminescence excitation spectra. The role of the defects in the GaN barrier neighboring to the InGaN region was demonstrated clearly in capturing(More)
