    A finite element model was developed to simulate the ablation results. The optimal parameters (30 w, 15 s) were obtained by changing the input energy (20 w, 25 w, 30 w, 35 w, 40 w) with different operating times (15 s, 20 s, 25 s, 30 s). Then, in vitro and in vivo experiments were performed based on the results from FEM simulation. In the in vitro experiments, 240 pieces of strips of tissues were ... View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (320 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    A cross-platform three-dimensional (3D) system, Acu3D, was developed to visualize human meridians and acupoints. Firstly, a 3D model of human body with meridians and acupoints was built as the basic data for Acu3D. The existing relevant standards and clinical knowledge were collected and organized to construct a knowledge-base which was integrated into the system. Then, Acu3D was realized leverage...

    Major depressive disorder is associated with an increased risk of suicide. The aim of the present study was to compare changes in event-related potentials (ERP) of suicide attempters and non-attempters with major depressive disorder during an implicit emotion processing task. The results showed that the stimuli had a clear effect on the N2 and P3 amplitudes for both suicide attempters and non-atte... View full abstract»
