Ying Zhang, Lei Wang, Miaomiao Guo, Lei Qu, Huanhuan Cui, Shuo Yang
Journal of Biomedical Science and Engineering (JBiSE) , 2016, DOI: 10.4236/jbise.2016.910B010
Auditory brain-computer interfaces (BCI) provide a method of non-muscular commu-nication and control for late-stage amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) patients, who have impaired eye movements or compromised vision. In this study, random sequences of spoken digits were presented as auditory stimulation. According the protocol, the subject should pay attention to target digits and ignore non-target digits. EEG data were recorded and the components of P300 and N200 were extracted as features for pattern recognition. Fisher classifier was designed and provided likelihood estimates for the Dynamic Stopping Criterion (DSC). Dynamic data collection was controlled by a threshold of the posterior probabilities which were continually updated with each additional measurement. In addition, the experiment would be stopped and the decision was made once the probabilities were above the threshold. The results showed that this paradigm could effectively evoke the characteristic EEG, and the DSC algorithm could improve the accuracy and communication rate.

Yang Ying Cui Lei,China Medical University,China,

现代图书情报技术 , 2011,
Abstract: Co-word cluster method is improved by following ways: high-frequency words are selected according to the formula derived from Zipf’s law; adhesive force is used to identify the core major MeSH words for tagging the content of each cluster; contrastive analysis of two periods helps to find the topics change. The bibliographic data of medical informatics are collected from PubMed in two periods (1999-2003 and 2004-2008). Major MeSH words from the articles are extracted separately to make co-word clusters as to explore the evolution of this subject structure based on comparison of two periods.

中国物理快报 , 2009,
Abstract: A source of quantum correlated photon pairs in the 1550nm telecom band obtained by a pumping 11m photonic crystal fiber with 10ps pulse trains is experimentally demonstrated. We investigate how the birefringence of the fiber influences the purity of the photon pairs. We also present the frequency correlation of the signal and idler photon pairs. The experimental results are useful for developing a compact source of photon pairs well suited for quantum communication.

Lei Bao,Kai Fang,Tianfang Cai,Jing Wang,Lijia Yang,Lili Cui,Jing Han,Lin Ding,Ying Luo
Physics , 2008, DOI: 10.1119/1.2976334
Abstract: Student content knowledge and general reasoning abilities are two important areas in education practice and research. However, there hasn't been much work in physics education that clearly documents the possible interactions between content learning and the development of general reasoning abilities. In this paper, we report one study of a systematic research to investigate the possible interactions between students' learning of physics content knowledge and the development of general scientific reasoning abilities. Specifically, this study seeks to answer the research question of whether and to what extent content learning may affect the development of general reasoning abilities. College entrance testing data of freshman college students in both USA and China were collected using three standardized tests, FCI, BEMA, and Lawson's Classroom Test of Scientific Reasoning (Lawson Test). The results suggest that years of rigorous training of physics knowledge in middle and high schools have made significant impact on Chinese students' ability in solving physics problems, while such training doesn't seem to have direct effects on their general ability in scientific reasoning, which was measured to be at the same level as that of the students in USA. Details of the curriculum structures in the education systems of USA and China are also compared to provide a basis for interpreting the assessment data.

Abstract: The MS 8.0 Wenchuan earthquake of 12 May 2008 produced a 285-km long surface rupture zone along the pre-existing Yingxiu-Beichuan, Guanxian-Anxian, and Qingchuan faults, which indicated the faults were reactivated. The maximum thrust slip distance was estimated to be about 10 m, accompanied by 9 m of shortening across the rupture zone [1]. Most of the large aftershocks were distributed in the north and south parts of the Longmenshan fault zone. The dominant focal depths of the aftershocks were between 5 and 20 km, and the depth of the main shock was 16.0 km. The focal depth distribution in some areas was characterized by high-angle westward dipping. The rupture mode of the main shock was characterized by reverse faulting in the south and with a large strike-slip component in the north [2].The spatial and temporal patterns of deep-source gas leakage can be investigated by measuring soil gas in the faulted zones. The variations of soil-gas concentrations can serve as useful tools for monitoring earthquakes. The short-term decrease of helium concentrations in soil gas along the San Andreas Fault in central California was well-correlated with aftershocks [3]. The sudden increase in CO2 and Rn concentrations at the Mariánské Lázn? fault in the NW Bohemian swarm quake region might indicate an increase of fault permeability caused by stress redistribution, resulting in the opening of migration pathways [4]. Across two fault segments that ruptured during the magnitude 7.5 Landers earthquake in 1992, anomalously high radon concentrations were found in the fractures three weeks after the earthquake [5]. In parts of southeastern Ghana, In the highly faulted area, radon activity up to 115.00 k Bq/m3 was measured, on the contrary in non-faulted areas radon activity was less than 20.00 k Bq m3 [6]. The concentrations of He, Rn, CO2, and N2 in soil gas clearly showed anomalous values along the fault of Hsincheng in the Hsinchu area of Taiwan [7]. High H2 concentrations of up to 3%

Abstract: Flowering time relies on the integration of intrinsic developmental cues and environmental signals. FLC and its downstream target FT are key players in the floral transition in Arabidopsis. Here, we characterized the expression pattern and function of JMJ18, a novel JmjC domain-containing histone H3K4 demethylase gene in Arabidopsis. JMJ18 was dominantly expressed in companion cells; its temporal expression pattern was negatively and positively correlated with that of FLC and FT, respectively, during vegetative development. Mutations in JMJ18 resulted in a weak late-flowering phenotype, while JMJ18 overexpressors exhibited an obvious early-flowering phenotype. JMJ18 displayed demethylase activity toward H3K4me3 and H3K4me2, and bound FLC chromatin directly. The levels of H3K4me3 and H3K4me2 in chromatins of FLC clade genes and the expression of FLC clade genes were reduced, whereas FT expression was induced and the protein expression of FT increased in JMJ18 overexpressor lines. The early-flowering phenotype caused by the overexpression of JMJ18 was mainly dependent on the functional FT. Our findings suggest that the companion cell–dominant and developmentally regulated JMJ18 binds directly to the FLC locus, reducing the level of H3K4 methylation in FLC chromatin and repressing the expression of FLC, thereby promoting the expression of FT in companion cells to stimulate flowering.

Physics , 2007, DOI: 10.1103/PhysRevB.76.134513
Abstract: The current-voltage (I-V) characteristics of various MgB2 films have been studied at different magnetic fields parallel to c-axis. At fields \mu0H between 0 and 5T, vortex liquid-glass transitions were found in the I-V isotherms. Consistently, the I-V curves measured at different temperatures show a scaling behavior in the framework of quasi-two-dimension (quasi-2D) vortex glass theory. However, at \mu0 H >= 5T, a finite dissipation was observed down to the lowest temperature here, T=1.7K, and the I-V isotherms did not scale in terms of any known scaling law, of any dimensionality. We suggest that this may be caused by a mixture of \sigma band vortices and \pi band quasiparticles. Interestingly, the I-V curves at zero magnetic field can still be scaled according to the quasi-2D vortex glass formalism, indicating an equivalent effect of self-field due to persistent current and applied magnetic field.

Abstract: Nowadays, we are in great lack of the technology theory for the storage and transportation of gas hydrate. Under this condition, after checking out related theory of these, we established the technology roadmap of the storage and transportation of gas hydrate by LNG technology. Study has shown that the technology of LNG is more saving than that of pipeline. Then we came out with the new idea of storage and transportation of hydrate by LNG technology.

Abstract: High altitude acclimatization is a series of physiological responses taking places when subjects go to altitude. Many factors could influence these processes, such as altitude, ascending speed and individual characteristics. In this study, based on a repeated measurement design of three sequential measurements at baseline, acute phase and chronic phase, we evaluated the effect of BMI, smoking and drinking on a number of physiological responses in high altitude acclimatization by using mixed model and partial least square path model on a sample of 755 Han Chinese young males. We found that subjects with higher BMI responses were reluctant to hypoxia. The effect of smoking was not significant at acute phase. But at chronic phase, red blood cell volume increased less while respiratory function increased more for smoking subjects compared with nonsmokers. For drinking subjects, red blood cell volume increased less than nondrinkers at both acute and chronic phases, while blood pressures increased more than nondrinkers at acute phase and respiratory function, red blood cell volume and oxygen saturation increased more than nondrinkers at chronic phase. The heavy and long-term effect of smoking, drinking and other factors in high altitude acclimatization needed to be further studied.

Abstract: Although the beneficial effects of acupuncture in asthma treatment have been well documented, little is known regarding the biological basis of this treatment. Changes in the lung proteome of acupuncture-treated rats with asthma onset were comparatively analyzed using a two-dimensional gel electrophoresis (2DE) and mass-spectrometry- (MS-) based proteomic approach. Acupuncture on specific acupuncture points appeared to improve respiratory function and reduce the total number of leukocytes and eosinophils in bronchoalveolar lavage fluid in OVA-induced asthma onset. Image analysis of 2DE gels revealed 32 differentially expressed acupuncture-specific protein spots in asthma onset; 30 of which were successfully identified as 28 unique proteins using LC-MS/MS. Bioinformatic analyses indicated that these altered proteins are most likely involved in inflammation-related biological functions, and the functional associations of these proteins result in an inflammation signaling pathway. Acupuncture regulates the pathway at different levels by regulating several key nodal proteins, including downregulating of proinflammatory proteins (e.g., S100A8, RAGE, and S100A11) and upregulating of anti-inflammatory proteins (e.g., CC10, ANXA5, and sRAGE). These deregulated inflammation-related proteins may mediate, at least in part, the antiasthmatic effect of acupuncture. Further functional investigation of these acupuncture-specific effector proteins could identify new drug candidates for the prophylaxis and treatment of asthma.
