As a complex mental process, creativity requires the coordination of multiple brain regions. Previous pathological research on figural creativity has indicated that there is a mechanism by which the left side of the brain inhibits the activities of the right side of the brain during figural creative thinking, but this mechanism has not been directly(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the risk factors and treatment status of Chinese stroke patients aged 35-45 years old. METHODS We collected data from 1988 in-hospital stroke patients aged 35-45 years old from 36 hospitals in mainland China and compared it to 12,260 health controls with the same age. Information about stroke risk factors was obtained through a(More)
This paper presents a sensor fault detection and diagnosis approach for industrial combustion processes. Clustering algorithms are applied to the measurements of controllable process variables involved in single-input-single-output feedback control loops. Current data points from the process are compared with the clusters to identify sensor faults. Once the(More)
The comparative study about the interaction between curcumin and its derivatives (demothxycurcumin and bisdeoxycurcumin) with human serum albumin (HSA) has been carried out using multi-spectroscopic analysis and molecular modeling method. The characteristic of fluorescence quenching and the thermodynamic parameters have been studied by state emission(More)
Depression is a common occurrence in patients with Parkinson's disease (PD). Brain deficits may be the underlying cause of depression in PD. In the present study, we investigated whether morphometric alterations contribute to depression in PD. Seventeen depressed PD patients, 17 non-depressed PD patients and 45 normal controls were enrolled in the study.(More)
OBJECTIVE Research the effect of anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidation drugs on acute stroke patients. METHODS 128 patients with acute ischemic stroke are divided into two groups-combined treatment group (71) and control (57). Test serum biomarkers and evaluate neurological function and living ability before and after therapy, compare between groups and(More)
In this paper, a data-mining approach is applied to optimize combustion efficiency of a coal-fired boiler. The combustion process is complex, nonlinear, and nonstationary. A virtual testing procedure is developed to validate the results produced by the optimization methods. The developed procedure quantifies improvements in the combustion efficiency without(More)
