##### Engaging ADHD students in tasks with hand gestures: a pedagogical possibility for teachers with Ronan Bernas and Philippe Eberhard Educational Studies 30 (3): 217-229. 2004.

Forty‐five 7½‐year‐old students clinically diagnosed with ADHD participated in the study. The students were asked to solve three sets of puzzles. The teachers supported the students in the tasks by using three different scaffolding modalities: speech‐only, gesture‐only and speech in conjunction with gestures. The results indicate that when the…Read more

##### Why I Want to Write Contemporary Chinese Thought 30 (3): 41-46. 1999.
Someone asks a climber why he wants to climb a mountain—everyone knows that climbing is dangerous and is of no practical advantage—and he replies, "Because it is there." I like this answer because it shows a sense of humor—it is quite clear that it is because he wants to climb it, but he tries to trick us by saying that it is because the mountain is there that he is itching to get at it. Apart from this, I also like what the climber does, scaling sheer cliffs for no good reason. It may cause ach…Read more

##### Another Type of Culture Contemporary Chinese Thought 30 (3): 61-64. 1999.
My wife was a student from among the "workers, peasants, and soldiers" and studied history at university. One day, during her junior year, a female student from a country village announced loudly in class, "I don't know what a eunuch is!" She looked very pleased with herself when she had said this. Other students in the class chimed in: "I don't know either." "Neither do I." My wife is a very straightforward sort of person and she said shyly, "Oh, I think I might know—a eunuch is a man who has b…Read more

##### Vision-Centrality and the Reflexive-Identity of External Object with Zhai Zhenming Frontiers of Philosophy in China 3 (1). 2008.
The correspondence of a sensory object to the category of a descriptive statement requires a reflexive-identity of the object, and such a reflexive-identity is primarily based on the cognition of spatiality. Spatiality is, however, constituted through visual perception. There are only two occasions on which definitive reflexive-identity is exemplified: the infinitesimal point and the infinite "One," and others are just human stipulations that meet pragmatic needs of rough identification of thing…Read more

##### The automatic activation of emotion words measured using the emotional face-word Stroop task in late Chinese–English bilinguals with Lin Fan, Qiang Xu, Fei Xu, Yaping Yang, and Zhi Lu Cognition and Emotion 32 (2): 315-324. 2017.
In the current study, late Chinese–English bilinguals performed a facial expression identification task with emotion words in the task-irrelevant dimension, in either their first language or second language. The investigation examined the automatic access of the emotional content in words appearing in more than one language. Significant congruency effects were present for both L1 and L2 emotion word processing. Furthermore, the magnitude of emotional face-word Stroop effect in the L1 task was gr…Read more

By studying these relationships, the paper aspires to contemplate new presumed mediators in the association of participative leadership…Read more

##### Population Density and Moment-based Approaches to Modeling Domain Calcium-mediated Inactivation of L-type Calcium Channels with Kiah Hardcastle, Seth H. Weinberg, and Gregory D. Smith Acta Biotheoretica 64 (1): 11-32. 2016.
We present a population density and moment-based description of the stochastic dynamics of domain $${\text{Ca}}^{2+}$$ Ca 2 + -mediated inactivation of L-type $${\text{Ca}}^{2+}$$ Ca 2 + channels. Our approach accounts for the effect of heterogeneity of local $${\text{Ca}}^{2+}$$ Ca 2 + signals on whole cell $${\text{Ca}}^{2+}$$ Ca 2 + currents; however, in contrast with prior work, e.g., Sherman et al. :985–995, 1990), we do not assume that $${\text{Ca}}^{2+}$$ Ca 2 + domain formation and colla…Read more

##### Preface Contemporary Chinese Thought 30 (3): 5-9. 1999.
When I was young, I read Major Barbara by George Bernard Shaw, and there was one scene that left a great impression on me. The industrial magnate Andrew Undershaft meets his son Stephen, whom he has not seen for many years, and asks him what he is interested in. The young man has no talent for science, the arts or law, but says there is one thing he is good at, and that is telling right from wrong. Undershaft pours scorn on his son, and wants to know how, if he is unable to do anything else, he …Read more
