Simulation of the Spiking Neural Network based on Practical Memristor

In order to gain a better understanding of the brain and explore biologically-inspired computation, significant attention is being paid to research into the spike-based neural computation. Spiking neural network (SNN), which is inspired by the understanding of observed biological structure, has been increasingly applied to pattern recognition task. In this work, a single layer...

Research of digital temperature measurement system in vacuum thermal test based on DS18B20

Temperature measurement is a very important measurement project in spacecraft vacuum thermal test, and thermocouple measurement system is generally used for temperature measurement. In order to reduce the number of wire measuring circuit and improving the measurement system of anti disturbance and high measurement accuracy in vacuum thermal test process, which can be used in...

Updating the Geologic Barcodes for South China: Discovery of Late Archean Banded Iron Formations in the Yangtze Craton

Banded iron formations (BIFs) in Archean cratons provide important “geologic barcodes” for the global correlation of Precambrian sedimentary records. Here we report the first finding of late Archean BIFs from the Yangtze Craton, one of largest Precambrian blocks in East Asia with an evolutionary history of over 3.3 Ga. The Yingshan iron deposit at the northeastern margin of the...

Injury-related infant deaths: a state analysis of a public health, health care, policy network

Introduction: This research examines a state-level public health, health care, and policy network focused on efforts to reduce unintentional childhood injuries. The network is composed of 12 organizations: four public health, four health care, and four policy. Methods: A 23-item survey was administered to the 12 organizations between January and June 2015. Analyses were conducted...

Urban Expansion Assessment in Huaihe River Basin, China, from 1998 to 2013 Using Remote Sensing Data

Urbanization reflects the overall behavior of human society; thus, characterization of its associated spatial and temporal trends has been extensively researched. This study examines the process of urban expansion in the Huaihe River Basin (HRB) which is a key transition region within China’s urban system. In order to grasp the urban expansion process in different temporal...

The efficacy of thymosin α1 as immunomodulatory treatment for sepsis: a systematic review of randomized controlled trials

Background Thymosin α1 (Tα1) as immunomodulatory treatment is supposed to be beneficial for the sepsis patients by regulating T cell subsets and inflammatory mediators. However, limited by the small sample size and the poor study design, the persuasive power of the single clinical studies is weak. This meta-analysis aimed to investigate the impact of Tα1 on the sepsis patients...

Uncertainty in Ecohydrological Modeling in an Arid Region Determined with Bayesian Methods

In arid regions, water resources are a key forcing factor in ecosystem circulation, and soil moisture is the critical link that constrains plant and animal life on the soil surface and underground. Simulation of soil moisture in arid ecosystems is inherently difficult due to high variability. We assessed the applicability of the process-oriented CoupModel for forecasting of soil...

Roughness in Lattice Ordered Effect Algebras

Many authors have studied roughness on various algebraic systems. In this paper, we consider a lattice ordered effect algebra and discuss its roughness in this context. Moreover, we introduce the notions of the interior and the closure of a subset and give some of their properties in effect algebras. Finally, we use a Riesz ideal induced congruence and define a function in a...

Prostate Tumor Overexpressed 1 (PTOV1) Is a Novel Prognostic Marker for Nasopharyngeal Carcinoma Progression and Poor Survival Outcomes

Background Prostate tumor overexpressed 1 (PTOV1) has been reported to contribute to increased cancer proliferation. However, the clinical significance of PTOV1 in the development and progression of nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) is unclear. Our study aimed to investigate the expression pattern of PTOV1 in NPC and its correlation with clinicopathological features of patients...

Multidimensional fixed points for generalized ψ-quasi-contractions in quasi-metric-like spaces

In this paper, we introduce the concept of a quasi-metric-like space, and by defining the w-compatibility of two mappings, we obtain multidimensional coincidence point and multidimensional fixed point theorems for generalized ψ-quasi-contractions in quasi-metric-like spaces. Our results extend the fixed point theorems in Vetro and Radenović (Appl. Math. Comput. 219:1594-1600...

Common fixed point theorems for fuzzy mappings in G-metric spaces

In this paper, we introduce the concept of Hausdorff G-metric in the space of fuzzy sets induced by the metric d G and obtain some results on Hausdorff G-metric. We also prove common fixed point theorems for a family of fuzzy self-mappings in the space of fuzzy sets on a complete G-metric space. MSC:47H10, 54H25.

Lactoferrin Promotes Early Neurodevelopment and Cognition in Postnatal Piglets by Upregulating the BDNF Signaling Pathway and Polysialylation

Lactoferrin (Lf) is a sialic acid (Sia)-rich, iron-binding milk glycoprotein that has multifunctional health benefits. Its potential role in neurodevelopment and cognition remains unknown. To test the hypothesis that Lf may function to improve neurodevelopment and cognition, the diet of postnatal piglets was supplemented with Lf from days 3 to 38. Expression levels of selected...

Thrombocytopenia Is Associated with Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome Mortality: An International Study

Background Early detection of the Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome (ARDS) has the potential to improvethe prognosis of critically ill patients admitted to the intensive care unit (ICU).

Overexpression of SIRT1 promotes metastasis through epithelial-mesenchymal transition in hepatocellular carcinoma

Background SIRT1 is a member of the mammalian sirtuin family with the ability to deacetylate histone and nonhistone proteins. The correlation between SIRT1 expression and tumor metastasis in several types of cancer has aroused widespread concern. This study investigated SIRT1 expression and its prognostic value in hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). The function of SIRT1 in...
