1. The Kidney Early Evaluation Program (KEEP) of Japan.

    Clinical Nephrology 83(7 Suppl 1):52 (2015) PMID 25725243

    The International Kidney Evaluation Association Japan (IKEAJ) was created to improve public health awareness of chronic kidney disease (CKD) by screening high-risk CKD populations. This study aimed to retrospectively examine data from KEEP Japan and detect the CKD risk factors for the onset and ...
  2. Morphological elucidation of basal ganglia circuits contributing reward prediction.

    Frontiers in Neuroscience 9:6 (2015) PMID 25698913 PMCID PMC4318281

    Electrophysiological studies in monkeys have shown that dopaminergic neurons respond to the reward prediction error. In addition, striatal neurons alter their responsiveness to cortical or thalamic inputs in response to the dopamine signal, via the mechanism of dopamine-regulated synaptic plasti...

  6. Theta oscillation and neuronal activity in rat hippocampus are involved in temporal discrimination of time in seconds.

    Frontiers in Systems Neuroscience 9:95 (2015) PMID 26157367 PMCID PMC4475904

    The discovery of time cells revealed that the rodent hippocampus has information regarding time. Previous studies have suggested that the role of hippocampal time cells is to integrate temporally segregated events into a sequence using working memory with time perception. However, it is unclear ...

  9. Short-term cycles of feed deprivation and refeeding promote full compensatory growth in the Amazon fish matrinxã (Brycon amazonicus)

    Aquaculture 433:430 (2014)

    Developing nutritional strategies that can reduce production costs for the fish industry without affecting productive performance is paramount to make the activity sustainable. We investigated if short-term cycles of feed deprivation and refeeding elicit compensatory growth in matrinxã...

  13. Low temperature synthesis and characterization of lanthanide-doped BaTiO3 nanocrystals.

    Chemical Communications 50(26):3480 (2014) PMID 24553858

    The vapor diffusion sol-gel (VDSG) method was employed for the room-temperature synthesis of ~10 nm, aliovalently doped 0.4, 0.8, and 1.6 mol% La:BaTiO3 and 0.4, 0.6, and 1.2 mol% Dy:BaTiO3 nanocrystals. Maximum ensemble relative permittivities of 176 and 208 were observed in the 0.8 mol% La:BaT...

    Kidney and Blood Pressure Research 39(4):279 (2014) PMID 25196274

    We examined sex differences in prevalence, progression, and improvement in early-stage chronic kidney disease (CKD). We analyzed data from 533 participants who took 4 consecutive annual CKD detection tests. Urine albumin-creatinine ratio (ACR), estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR), and he...
