Slitrk5 deficiency impairs corticostriatal circuitry and leads to obsessive-compulsive-like behaviors in mice

Slitrk5 deficiency impairs corticostriatal circuitry and leads to obsessive-compulsive-like behaviors in mice

Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) is a common psychiatric disorder defined by the presence of obsessive thoughts and repetitive compulsive actions, and it often encompasses anxiety and depressive symptoms(1,2). Recently, the corticostriatal circuitry has been implicated in the pathogenesis of OCD3,4.
Control of the Lamb shift by a driving field

Control of the Lamb shift by a driving field

A unitary transformation approach is used to study the energy level shift of the atom coupled to both a vacuum electromagnetic field and a driving laser.
Reactivity of the M-(eta(2)-alkyne) bond [M = Cr, W]: A kinetic and DFT study

Reactivity of the M-(eta(2)-alkyne) bond [M = Cr, W]: A kinetic and DFT study

The displacement of eta(2)-coordinated 1-hexyne and 3-hexyne by 2-picoline from the Cr(CO)(5), BzCr(CO)(2) and W(CO)(5) fragments was studied. For the Cr systems, the data is consistent with a dissociative mechanism of alkyne displacement from the metal center.
Cavity-QED-based scheme for verification of the photon commutation relation

Cavity-QED-based scheme for verification of the photon commutation relation

We propose an experimental scheme to prove the photon commutation relation, [a, a(dagger)] = 1. The scheme exploits interaction between a single-mode cavity field and three two-level atoms, two of which are prepared in an entangled state.
Two-User Opportunistic Scheduling Using Hierarchical Modulations in Wireless Networks with Heterogenous Average Link Gains

Two-User Opportunistic Scheduling Using Hierarchical Modulations in Wireless Networks with Heterogenous Average Link Gains

Our contribution, in this paper, is two-fold. First, we analyze the performance of a hierarchical modulation-assisted two-best user opportunistic scheduling (TBS) scheme, which was proposed by the authors, in a fading environment where different users have different average link gains.
