OBJECTIVE Patients with major depressive disorder (MDD) clinically exhibit a deficit in positive emotional processing and are often distracted by especially negative emotional stimuli. Such emotional-cognitive interference in turn hampers the cognitive abilities of patients in their ongoing task. While the psychological correlates of such emotional conflict(More)
The present study investigated the neural overlap and dissociation underlying overt word production in the first language (L1) and second language (L2). Twenty-four Chinese-English bilinguals named pictures in either L1 or L2 while being scanned with functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI). When comparing picture naming in L2 to naming in L1, increased(More)
Effective literacy education in deaf students calls for psycholinguistic research revealing the cognitive and neural mechanisms underlying their written language processing. When learning a written language, deaf students are often instructed to sign out printed text. The present fMRI study was intended to reveal the neural substrates associated with word(More)
Cooperativity between pepsin and crystallization of calcium carbonate in distilled water was studied. The results show that vaterite was formed under the influence of pepsin and the crystalline product was a composite of vaterite and pepsin. The component of this material was similar to that of nacre. At the same time, the crystallization of calcium(More)
The brain activity associated with automatic semantic priming has been extensively studied. Thus far there has been no prior study that directly contrasts the neural mechanisms of semantic and affective priming. The present study employed event-related fMRI to examine the common and distinct neural bases underlying conceptual and affective priming with a(More)
Wireless sensor networks (WSNs) is a novel technology, which is developed with the advancement of micro-electronic, computing, and wireless communication technology. WSNs has merits of distributed information processing, covering broadly, and remote monitoring and control. Considering the disperse deployment, wind power resource random and seasonal(More)
A method is proposed for the extraction and individual separation of trivalent gallium, indium and thallium with sec-octylphenoxy acetic acid (CA-12), sec-nonylphenoxy acetic acid (CA-100) and naphthenic acid (NA) from chloride media. The distribution equilibria of gallium (III), indium (III), thallium (III) and thallium (I) between carboxylic acids (CA-12,(More)
We study multiplier algebras for a large class of Banach algebras which contains the group algebra L1(G), the Beurling algebras L1(G, ω), and the Fourier algebra A(G) of a locally compact group G. This study yields numerous new results and unifies some existing theorems on L1(G) and A(G) through an abstract Banach algebraic approach. Applications are(More)
The present study aims to explore the influence of emotional context on word evaluation. Participants were asked to read an "adjective + noun" phrase, where the adjective could be a positive or negative word, and the noun could be a positive, neutral or negative word, and then to make an emotional evaluation on the emotional tone of the target noun based on(More)
