Antimicrobial photodynamic therapy (aPDT) may offer a strategy to fight against drug-resistant fungal infections. The present protocol describes Rose bengal-mediated aPDT efficacy on a multidrug-resistant C. albicans strain in vitro.
Computerized Adaptive Testing System of Functional Assessment of Stroke Gong-Hong Lin1, Yi-Jing Huang1, Yeh-Tai Chou2, Hsin-Yu Chiang3, Ching-Lin Hsieh1,4,5 1School of Occupational Therapy, College of Medicine, National Taiwan University, 2Research Center for Psychological and Educational Testing, National Taiwan Normal University, 3Department of Occupational Therapy, College of Medicine, Fu Jen Catholic University, 4Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, National Taiwan University Hospital, 5Department of Occupational Therapy, College of Medical and Health Science, Asia University Here, we present a protocol to develop the computerized adaptive testing system of the functional assessment of stroke (CAT-FAS). The CAT-FAS can simultaneously assess four functions (two motor functions [upper and lower extremities], postural control, and basic activities of daily living) with sufficient reliability and administrative efficiency.
Designing Microfluidic Devices for Studying Cellular Responses Under Single or Coexisting Chemical/Electrical/Shear Stress Stimuli Tzu-Yuan Chou1, Yung-Shin Sun2, Hsien-San Hou3, Shang-Ying Wu1, Yun Zhu1, Ji-Yen Cheng3, Kai-Yin Lo1 1Department of Agricultural Chemistry, National Taiwan University, 2Department of Physics, Fu-Jen Catholic University, 3Research Center for Applied Sciences, Academia Sinica Micro-fabricated devices integrated with fluidic components provide an in vitro platform for cell studies mimicking the in vivo micro-environment. We developed polymethylmethacrylate-based microfluidic chips for studying cellular responses under single or coexisting chemical/electrical/shear stress stimuli.
Conscious and Non-conscious Representations of Emotional Faces in Asperger's Syndrome Vincent S. C. Chien1,2, Arthur C. Tsai1, Han Hsuan Yang3, Yi-Li Tseng4, Alexander N. Savostyanov5,6, Michelle Liou1,7 1Institute of Statistical Science, Academia Sinica, 2Max Planck Institute for Human Cognitive and Brain Sciences, 3Department of Psychology, Fo Guang University, 4Department of Electrical Engineering, Fu Jen Catholic University, 5State Research Institute of Physiology and Basic Medicine, 6Novosibirsk State University, 7Imaging Research Center, Taipei Medical University An EEG experimental protocol is designed to clarify the interplay between conscious and non-conscious representations of emotional faces in patients with Asperger's syndrome. The technique suggests that patients with Asperger's syndrome have deficits in non-conscious representation of emotional faces, but have comparable performance in conscious representation with healthy controls.
