Highly influential "dual-process" accounts of human cognition postulate the coexistence of a slow accurate system with a fast error-prone system. But why would there be just two systems rather than, say, one or 93? Here, we argue that a dual-process architecture might reflect a rational tradeoff between the cognitive flexibility afforded by multiple systems and the time and effort required to choose between them. We investigate what the optimal set and number of cognitive systems would be depending on the structure of the environment. Read More

Infectious and inflammatory diseases involve superoxide anion (O) production. Real-time and non-invasive evaluation of O in intact biological systems has been a significant challenge in biology and medicine. Here, I report that an advanced near-infrared chemiluminescent probe, MCLA-800, enables reliable non-invasive optical readout of Oex vivo and in vivo. Read More

Background: The diagnosis of burn depth often relies on the subjective judgment of plastic surgeons. Contrast-enhanced ultrasound (CEUS) can visualize the microcirculation well and has potential value in diagnosing the depth of burn wounds. We assessed the depth of the burn wounds by CEUS, and compared the results with histological examination. Read More

Macrocycles are attractive structures for drug development due to their favorable structural features, potential in binding to targets with flat featureless surfaces, and their ability to disrupt protein-protein interactions. Moreover, large novel highly diverse libraries of low-molecular-weight macrocycles with therapeutically favorable characteristics have been recently established. Considering the mentioned facts, having a validated, fast, and accurate computational protocol for studying the molecular recognition and binding mode of this interesting new class of macrocyclic peptides deemed to be helpful as well as insightful in the quest of accelerating drug discovery.

Raman spectroscopy (RS) is a widely used analytical technique based on the detection of molecular vibrations in a defined system, which generates Raman spectra that contain unique and highly resolved fingerprints of the system. However, the low intensity of normal Raman scattering effect greatly hinders its application. Recently, the newly emerged surface enhanced Raman spectroscopy (SERS) technique overcomes the problem by mixing metal nanoparticles such as gold and silver with samples, which greatly enhances signal intensity of Raman effects by orders of magnitudes when compared with regular RS.
