Previous investigations of the neural code for complex object shape have focused on two-dimensional pattern representation. This may be the primary mode for object vision given its simplicity and direct relation to the retinal image. In contrast, three-dimensional shape representation requires higher-dimensional coding derived from extensive computation. We(More)
BACKGROUND MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are important diagnostic and prognostic markers in cancer. In the study reported here, we analyzed the potential relationship between miRNA expression and extrathyroidal invasion in papillary thyroid carcinoma (PTC). METHODS Samples from 91 patients with PTC were collected from January 2008 to April 2012 at our hospital. To(More)
BACKGROUND Patient adherence is an important issue for health service providers and health researchers. However, the knowledge structure of diverse research on treatment adherence is unclear. This study used co-word analysis and social network analysis techniques to analyze research literature on adherence, and to show their knowledge structure and(More)
Epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) is a receptor tyrosine kinase that is commonly activated by mutation in non-small cell lung cancer. The mechanism of this oncogenic activation is not completely understood, but in contrast to that of the wild-type EGFR, it is proposed to be independent of kinase domain dimerization. Mechanistic studies on EGFR have(More)
BACKGROUND An increase in the prevalence of thyroid disease has been found with increasing iodine intake, since universal salt iodization (USI) was instituted throughout China in 1996. The aim of this study was to analyze the incidence of thyroid carcinoma (TC) before and after USI in Shenyang, a city of northeastern China. MATERIAL/METHODS The pathology(More)

High-risk neuroblastoma remains a therapeutic challenge with a long-term survival rate of less than 40%. Therefore, new agents are urgently needed to overcome chemotherapy resistance so as to improve the treatment outcome of this deadly disease. Histone deacetylase (HDAC) inhibitors (HDACIs) represent a novel class of anticancer drugs. Recent studies(More)
Investigation on illusory contours is important for understanding the mechanisms underlying the object recognition of human visual system. Numerous researches have shown that illusory contours formed in motion and stereopsis are generated by the unmatched features. Here we conduct three psychophysical experiments to test if Kanizsa illusory contours are(More)
BACKGROUND Although expected to act as gate-keeping primary care providers, as community health service (CHS) facilities are severely under-utilized; Chinese people in both rural and urban areas used predominantly higher-tier facilities for primary care purpose, with significant financial and outcome consequences. This study intends to explore the(More)
The pro-inflammatory cytokine tumor necrosis factor-α (TNF-α) is associated with the generation of inflammatory and neuropathic pain. The current study aims to investigate the expression of TNF-α in the brain of rats with spared nerve injury (SNI), a neuropathic pain model with the lesion of common peroneal and tibial nerves. Two weeks following SNI, the(More)
