Test anxiety: perceptions of American community college nursing students

Background Nowadays, there are common phenomena among college nursing students who reported increasingly test anxiety. The purpose of this phenomenological study was to increase understanding of American community college nursing students and their experiences using an extended time and other form of supportive accommodation to address test anxiety. Methods This study utilized...

Strategies to promote Chinese international students’ school performance: resolving the challenges in American higher education

Dongfang Liu In recent years, there has been an increase in Chinese international students attending American universities. Chinese international students in American higher education represent the largest ... and globally, an outcome that would indeed benefit all mankind.

Folate/NIR 797-Conjugated Albumin Magnetic Nanospheres: Synthesis, Characterisation, and In Vitro and In Vivo Targeting Evaluation

A practical and effective strategy for synthesis of Folate-NIR 797-conjugated Magnetic Albumin Nanospheres (FA-NIR 797-MAN) was developed. For this strategy, Magnetic Albumin Nanospheres (MAN), composed of superparamagnetic iron oxide nanoparticles (SPIONs) and bovine serum albumin (BSA), were covalently conjugated with folic acid (FA) ligands to enhance the targeting capability...

Pericytes Contribute to the Disruption of the Cerebral Endothelial Barrier via Increasing VEGF Expression: Implications for Stroke

Disruption of the blood-brain barrier (BBB) integrity occurring during the early onset of stroke is not only a consequence of, but also contributes to the further progression of stroke. Although it has been well documented that brain microvascular endothelial cells and astrocytes play a critical role in the maintenance of BBB integrity, pericytes, sandwiched between endothelial...

Distinct Role of Rab27a in Granule Movement at the Plasma Membrane and in the Cytosol of NK Cells

Protocols were developed to automate image analysis and to track the movement of thousands of vesicular compartments in live cells. Algorithms were used to discriminate among different types of movement (e.g. random, caged, and directed). We applied these tools to investigate the steady-state distribution and movement of lytic granules (LG) in live natural killer (NK) cells by...

Electrochemically hydrogenated TiO2 nanotubes with improved photoelectrochemical water splitting performance

One-dimensional anodic titanium oxide (ATO) nanotube arrays hold great potential as photoanode for photoelectrochemical (PEC) water splitting. In this work, we report a facile and eco-friendly electrochemical hydrogenation method to modify the electronic and PEC properties of ATO nanotube films. The hydrogenated ATO (ATO-H) electrodes present a significantly improved photocurrent...
