    Evaluating Cortical Alterations in Patients With Chronic Back Pain Using Neuroimaging Techniques: Recent Advances and Perspectives
    with Lili Zhou, Qiaoyue Ren, Tahmineh Mokhtari, Li Wan, Xiaolin Zhou, and Li Hu
    Frontiers in Psychology 10. 2019.
    Chronic back pain (CBP) is a leading cause of disability and results in considerable socio-economic burdens worldwide. Although CBP patients are commonly diagnosed and treated with a focus on the ‘end organ dysfunction’ (i.e., peripheral nerve injuries or diseases), the evaluation of CBP remains flawed and problematic with great challenges. Given that the peripheral nerve injuries or diseases are insufficient to define the etiology of CBP in some cases, the evaluation of alterations in the centr…Read more

    Choice revision
    Journal of Logic, Language and Information 28 (4): 577-599. 2019.
    Choice revision is a sort of non-prioritized multiple revision, in which the agent partially accepts the new information represented by a set of sentences. We investigate the construction of choice revision based on a new approach to belief change called descriptor revision. We prove that each of two variants of choice revision based on such construction is axiomatically characterized with a set of plausible postulates, assuming that the object language is finite. Furthermore, we introduce an al…Read more

    Does authoritarianism necessarily stifle creativity? The role of discipline-focused authoritarian leadership
    with Honglei Zhao, Qingming Su, Ming Lou, and Chuqi Hang
    Frontiers in Psychology 13. 2022.
    A burgeoning body of research has shown that authoritarian leadership embodies the characteristics of “light” and “dark,” meaning that it does not always have a negative impact on employees’ creative activities. However, studies explaining this potential positive effect are insufficient. To extend the AL and creativity literature, we draw on self-determination theory and event system theory, and elicit discipline-focused AL and appointment event criticality to examine whether, when, and how auth…Read more

    Stable Anatomy Detection in Multimodal Imaging Through Sparse Group Regularization: A Comparative Study of Iron Accumulation in the Aging Brain
    with Matthew Pietrosanu, Peter Seres, Ahmed Elkady, Alan H. Wilman, Linglong Kong, and Dana Cobzas
    Frontiers in Human Neuroscience 15. 2021.
    Multimodal neuroimaging provides a rich source of data for identifying brain regions associated with disease progression and aging. However, present studies still typically analyze modalities separately or aggregate voxel-wise measurements and analyses to the structural level, thus reducing statistical power. As a central example, previous works have used two quantitative MRI parameters—R2* and quantitative susceptibility —to study changes in iron associated with aging in healthy and multiple sc…Read more

    HDL surface lipids mediate CETP binding as revealed by electron microscopy and molecular dynamics simulation
    with M. Zhang, Charles R., H. Tong, M. Patel, F. Wang, M. J. Rames, A. Ren, K. A. Rye, X. Qiu, D. G. Johns, Charles M. A., and G. Ren
    Cholesteryl ester transfer protein mediates the transfer of cholesterol esters from atheroprotective high-density lipoproteins to atherogenic low-density lipoproteins. CETP inhibition has been regarded as a promising strategy for increasing HDL levels and subsequently reducing the risk of cardiovascular diseases. Although the crystal structure of CETP is known, little is known regarding how CETP binds to HDL. Here, we investigated how various HDL-like particles interact with CETP by electron mic…Read more

    Cytokine therapy reverses NK cell anergy in MHC-deficient tumors
    with M. Ardolino, C. S. Azimi, A. Iannello, T. N. Trevino, L. Horan, W. Deng, A. M. Ring, S. Fischer, K. C. Garcia, and D. H. Raulet
    Various cytokines have been evaluated as potential anticancer drugs; however, most cytokine trials have shown relatively low efficacy. Here, we found that treatments with IL-12 and IL-18 or with a mutant form of IL-2 provided substantial therapeutic benefit for mice specifically bearing MHC class I-deficient tumors, but these treatments were ineffective for mice with matched MHC class I+ tumors. Cytokine efficacy was linked to the reversal of the anergic state of NK cells that specifically occur…Read more

    The production of distinct sets of T cell receptor γδ+ T cells occurs in an ordered fashion in thymic development. The Vγ3 and Vγ4 genes, located downstream in the TCRγ Cγ1 gene cluster, are expressed by the earliest waves of developing TCRγδ+ T cells in the fetal thymus, destined for intraepithelial locations. Upstream Vγ2 and Vγ5 genes are expressed in later waves in the adult and constitute most TCRγδ + T cells in secondary lymphoid tissue. This developmental pattern is caused in part by a pr…Read more

    A shed NKG2D ligand that promotes natural killer cell activation and tumor rejection
    with W. Deng, B. G. Gowen, L. Wang, S. Lau, A. Iannello, J. Xu, T. L. Rovis, N. Xiong, and D. H. Raulet
    Immune cells, including natural killer cells, recognize transformed cells and eliminate them in a process termed immunosurveillance. It is thought that tumor cells evade immunosurveillance by shedding membrane ligands that bind to the NKG2D-activating receptor on NK cells and/or Tcells, and desensitize these cells. In contrast, we show that in mice, a shed form of MULT1, a high-affinity NKG2D ligand, causes NK cell activation and tumor rejection. Recombinant soluble MULT1 stimulated tumor reject…Read more
