Loose Coupling Between SK and P/Q-type Ca Channels in Cartwheel Cells of the Dorsal Cochlear Nucleus.

Small-conductance Ca-activated K (SK) and large conductance, voltage- and Ca-activated K (BK) channels are Ca-activated K channels that control action potential firing diverse neurons in the brain. In cartwheel cells of the dorsal cochlear nucleus, blockade of either channel type leads to excessive production of spike bursts. In the same cells, P/Q-type Ca channels in plasma membrane and ryanodine receptors in endoplasmic reticulum supply Ca to BK channels through Ca nanodomain signaling. In this study, vol...


A neural network approach to segment brain blood vessels in digital subtraction angiography.

Cerebrovascular diseases (CVDs) affect a large number of patients and often have devastating outcomes. The hallmarks of CVDs are the abnormalities formed on brain blood vessels, including protrusions, narrows, widening, and bifurcation of the blood vessels. CVDs are often diagnosed by digital subtraction angiography (DSA) yet the interpretation of DSA is challenging as one must carefully examine each brain blood vessel. The objective of this work is to develop a computerized analysis approach for automated ...

Quantitative assessment of phased array coils with different numbers of receiving channels in terms of signal-to-noise ratio and spatial noise variation in magnetic resonance imaging.

The neuroimaging of humans using 7T magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) has been conducted using phased array (PA) coils with different numbers of receiving channels. PA coils with a high number of channels may offer parallel imaging (PI) with a high reduction (R)-factor, which is enabled via under-sampling and coil geometry (g) factor, increasing the radiofrequency signal sensitivity provided by a small coil. The goals of this study were to assess and validate the coil performance of PA coils with different n...

TRP channels in gastric cancer: New hopes and clinical perspectives.

Gastric cancer is a multifactorial disease associated with a combination of and environmental factors. Each year, one million new gastric cancer cases are diagnosed worldwide and two-thirds end up losing the battle with this devastating disease. Currently, surgery represents the only effective treatment option for patients with early stage tumors. However, the asymptomatic phenotype of this disease during the early stages poses as a significant limiting factor to diagnosis and often renders treatments ineff...

Using selfies to challenge public stereotypes of scientists.

In an online Qualtrics panel survey experiment (N = 1620), we found that scientists posting self-portraits ("selfies") to Instagram from the science lab/field were perceived as significantly warmer and more trustworthy, and no less competent, than scientists posting photos of only their work. Participants who viewed scientist selfies, especially posts containing the face of a female scientist, perceived scientists as significantly warmer than did participants who saw science-only images or control images. P...

DNA-based digital comparator systems constructed by multifunctional nanoswitches.

In this paper, we propose a strategy involving coupling DNA structural nanoswitches with toehold mediated strand displacement for constructing novel DNA-based digital comparator (DC) logic systems, which are a basic part of traditional electronic computers and can compare whether two or more input numbers are equal. However, when the number of DC inputs is increased to a certain level, the speed and quality of the computing circuit can be affected because of the limitations of conventional electronic comput...

Beyond the Isolated Brain: The Promise and Challenge of Interacting Minds.

As scientists, we brainstorm and develop experimental designs with our colleagues and students. Paradoxically, this teamwork has produced a field focused nearly exclusively on mapping the brain as if it evolved in isolation. Here, we discuss promises and challenges in advancing our understanding of how human minds connect during social interaction.

The enantiomer pair of 24S- and 24R-hydroxycholesterol differentially alter activity of large-conductance Ca -dependent K (slo1 BK) channel.

24S-hydroxycholesterol (HC) is most abundant oxysterols in the brain, passes through blood brain barrier, and is therefore regarded as an intermediary for brain cholesterol elimination. We reported that large-conductance Ca - and voltage-activated K (slo1 BK) channels are suppressed by this oxysterol, which is presumably intercalated into cell membrane to access the outer surface of the channel. Such an outer approach would make it difficult to interact with the inner, ion-conducting part of the channel. Th...
