—In this paper, a novel transform domain digital wa-termarking scheme that uses visually meaningful binary image as watermark has been developed. The method embeds the watermark information adaptively with localized embedding strength according to the noise sensitivity level of the host image. Fuzzy adaptive resonance theory (Fuzzy-ART) classification is(More)
Parecoxib, a novel COX-2 inhibitor, functions as a neuroprotective agent and rescues neurons from cerebral ischemic reperfusion injury-induced apoptosis. However, the molecular mechanisms underlying parecoxib neuroprotection remain to be elucidated. There is growing evidence that endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress plays an important role in neuronal death(More)
There is an increasing body of evidence that a brief exposure to anesthesia induces ischemic tolerance in rat brain (anesthetic preconditioning). However, it is unknown whether preconditioning with sevoflurane, a commonly used volatile anesthetic in current clinical practice, produces a delayed window of neuroprotection against ischemia and what the(More)
Parecoxib is a recently described novel COX-2 inhibitor whose functional significance and neuroprotective mechanisms remain elusive. Therefore, in this study, we aimed to investigate whether delayed administration of parecoxib inhibited mitochondria-mediated neuronal apoptosis induced by ischemic reperfusion injury via phosphorylating Akt and its downstream(More)
