Abstract:Sodium ion battery is abundant in resources and costs low, making it very competitive in the large-scale energy storage devices. The anatase TiO2 electrode material with insertion/extraction mechanism shows stable cycling performance,which is more in line with the technical requirements of large-scale energy storage batteries. To improve the electrical conductivity and stability of the TiO2 electrode materials, we have synthesized anatase TiO2 and CMK-3 composite. TiO2 nanoparticles were deposited on the surface of CMK-3 by hydrothermal reaction, and the anode material of the sodium ion batteries with 3D network structure was prepared...

OBJECTIVE: Hoarding behavior is not limited to obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) alone. With the objective of highlighting the association between hoarding behavior and common psychiatric disorders, we explored its occurrence in psychiatric inpatients and co-occurrence with Axis I diagnoses. METHODS: In this prospective cohort study, we enrolled adult psychiatric inpatients by simple random sampling at an urban, community-based, academic medical center. Patients were screened for hoarding using the validated Hoarding Rating Scale-Interview, and those meeting criteria for clinically significant hoarding were assessed for Axis I disorders...

Animals are expected to select habitats that maximize their fitness over evolutionary time scales. Yet in human-modified landscapes, habitat selection might not always lead to increased fitness because animals undervalue high-quality resources that appear less attractive than those of lower quality. In the American West, agriculture has modified landscapes, yet little is known about whether agricultural changes alter the reliability of the cues animals use to identify habitat quality; ultimately forming maladaptive breeding strategies where behavioral cues are mismatched with survival outcomes...

BACKGROUND: Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) frequently co-occurs with Substance Use Disorders (SUDs). Standard ADHD pharmacotherapies are not effective in patients with this comorbidity and cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) has not been tested in this population. This RCT aimed to compare the efficacy of Integrated CBT (CBT/Integrated) directed at adult ADHD and SUD with CBT directed at SUD only (CBT/SUD) in patients with SUD and ADHD (SUD + ADHD). METHODS: Randomized clinical trial among 119 SUD + ADHD patients in a SUD treatment center...

CONTEXT: Lung cancer patients who undergo chemotherapy (CTX) experience multiple symptoms. Evaluation of how these symptoms cluster together and how these symptom clusters change over time are salient questions in symptom clusters research. OBJECTIVES: The purposes of this analysis, in a sample of lung cancer patients (n=145) who were receiving chemotherapy were to evaluate for differences in the number and types of symptom clusters at three time points (i.e., before their next cycle of CTX, the week after CTX, and two weeks after CTX) using ratings of symptom occurrence and severity and to evaluate for changes in these symptom clusters over time...

OBJECTIVE: The two primary - seemingly contradictory - strategies for classifying child psychiatric syndromes are categorical and dimensional; conceptual ambiguities appear to be greatest for polythetic syndromes such as autism spectrum disorder (ASD). Recently, a compelling alternative has emerged that integrates both categorical and dimensional approaches (ie, hybrid model) thanks to the increasing sophistication of analytic procedures. This study aimed to quantify the optimal phenotypic structure of ASD by comprehensively comparing categorical, dimensional, and hybrid models...

OBJECTIVE: Children who are fearful and anxious are at heightened risk for developing depression in adolescence. Treating anxiety disorders in pre/early adolescence may be one mechanism through which depressive symptoms later in adolescence can be prevented. We hypothesized that anxious youth who responded positively to cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) for anxiety would show reduced onset of depressive symptoms 2 years later compared to treatment non-responders, and that this effect would be specific to youth treated with CBT compared to an active supportive comparison treatment...

OBJECTIVE: Recent research suggests that comorbidity among child and adolescent psychiatric symptoms can be explained by a single general psychopathology ('p') factor, as well as more specific factors summarizing clusters of symptoms. We investigated within- and between-person changes in the general and specific psychopathology factors over a psychosocial intervention. METHOD: We ran a secondary analysis of the Systemic Therapy for At-Risk Teens study, a pragmatic randomized controlled trial that compared the effects of multisystemic therapy to management-as-usual for reducing antisocial behavior in 684 adolescents (82% male; 11-18 at baseline) over an 18-month period...

OBJECTIVE: This study evaluates the long-term outcomes of a stepped care treatment for pediatric obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) and investigates whether response to first-step cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) is an important indicator of three-year outcomes. METHOD: This study is a part of the Nordic Long-term OCD Treatment study (NordLOTS), in which 269 children and adolescents were treated with CBT. Non-responders to CBT were randomized to an extended treatment with continued CBT or pharmacotherapy with sertraline...

Distribution models are increasingly being used to understand how landscape and climatic changes are affecting the processes driving spatial and temporal distributions of plants and animals. However, many modeling efforts ignore the dynamic processes that drive distributional patterns at different scales, which may result in misleading inference about the factors influencing species distributions. Current occupancy models allow estimation of occupancy at different scales and, separately, estimation of immigration and emigration...

There is evidence that African Americans are 2.4 times more likely to be diagnosed with a schizophrenia-spectrum diagnosis compared with White individuals, who are more likely to receive an affective diagnosis. The reason for these diagnostic discrepancies is unclear, however, 2 explanations have garnered attention: epigenetic differences and systematic error or bias in the diagnostic process. The latter is the focus of the present study and it is hypothesized that the bias involves cultural insensitivity on the part of the clinician...

Researches, in the recent years, reveal the utmost importance of brain tissue assessment regarding its mechanical properties, especially for automatic robotic tools, surgical robots and helmet producing. For this reason, experimental and computational investigation of the brain behavior under different conditions seems crucial. However, experiments do not normally show the distribution of stress and injury in microscopic scale, and due to various factors are costly. Development of micromechanical methods, which could predict the brain behavior more appropriately, could highly be helpful in reducing these costs...

Dramatic breakthroughs in the treatment and assessment of neurological diseases are lacking. We believe that conventional methods have several limitations. Computerized technologies, including virtual reality, augmented reality, and robot assistant systems, are advancing at a rapid pace. In this study, we used Parkinson's disease (PD) as an example to elucidate how the latest computerized technologies can improve the diagnosis and treatment of neurological diseases. Dopaminergic medication and deep brain stimulation remain the most effective interventions for treating PD...

The aim of the study was to compare parent and teacher ratings of executive function and behavioral difficulties of kindergarten-age preterm and term children. Parents of 82 and kindergarten teachers of 105 preterm (<33 weeks' gestation) children and parents of 49 and kindergarten teachers of 46 term four- to five-year-old children completed executive function (EF) and behavior questionnaires. The preterm children were rated to have more EF difficulties than the term children by parents and teachers. On the behavior scales, the preterm children were reported as having more attention control difficulties than the term group, but no other behavioral problems...

Periodic health checks of contouring errors under unloaded conditions are critical for machine performance evaluation and value-added manufacturing. Aiming at breaking the dimension, range and speed measurement limitations of the existing devices, a cost-effective knowledge-driven approach for detecting error motions of arbitrary paths using a single camera is proposed. In combination with the PNP algorithm, the three-dimensional (3D) evaluation of large-scale contouring error in relatively high feed rate conditions can be deduced from a priori geometrical knowledge...
