Studying the human brain during interpersonal interaction allows us to answer many questions related to motor control and cognition. For instance, what happens in the brain when two people walking side by side begin to change their gait and match cadences? Adapted from the neuroimaging techniques used in single-brain measurements, hyperscanning (HS) is a technique used to measure brain activity from two or more individuals simultaneously. Thus far, HS has primarily focused on healthy participants during social interactions in order to characterize inter-brain dynamics. Read More

The involved interaction information concerning adsorbate-adsorbate and adsorbate-adsorbent is indispensable for developing and optimizing adsorption treatment of dye wastewater. Single and bi-solute adsorption of methyl orange (MO), indigo carmine (IC), and methylene blue (MB) on polystyrene anion exchanger (PsAX), defunctionalized version of PsAX (DF-PsAX), and hyper-cross-linked polystyrene adsorbent (MN200) were investigated to obtain a mechanistic understanding. Under acidic condition, higher adsorption efficiencies of PsAX due to extra intermolecular interactions of MO between the protonated tertiary amine group and the sulfate groups were observed, while strong alkaline condition is favorable for the adsorption of IC and MB by PsAX.

Optimizing interfacial contacts and thus electron transfer phenomena in heterogeneous electrocatalysts is an effective approach for enhancing electrocatalytic performance. Herein, we successfully synthesized ultrafine β-MoC nanoparticles confined within hollow capsules of nitrogen-doped porous carbon (β[email protected]) and found that the surface layer of molybdenum atoms was further oxidized to a single Mo-O surface layer, thus producing intimate O-Mo-C interfaces. An arsenal of complementary technologies, including XPS, atomic-resolution HAADF-STEM, and XAS analysis clearly reveals the existence of O-Mo-C interfaces for these surface-engineered ultrafine nanostructures.

Background: Limited data are available examining dietary interventions for optimizing protein and leucine intake to stimulate muscle protein synthesis (MPS) in older humans.Objectives: We aimed to investigate the aminoacidemia and appetite responses of older adults after consuming breakfast, a meal frequently consumed with high-carbohydrate and below-par amounts of protein and leucine for stimulating MPS.Methods: Five men and 3 women (means ± SD; age: 74 ± 7 y, BMI: 25.

Viscosupplementation (VS) is a symptomatic treatment for knee and other joint osteoarthritis (OA). Despite a long history of use, conflicting opinions remain on the best clinical indications and the most appropriate patients to be treated with intra-articular hyaluronic acid (IA-HA), the optimal dosing regimen and the modalities of retreatment. A multidisciplinary committee of European experts on OA (EUROVISCO) was constituted to formulate recommendations, aimed at helping physicians in the decision-making and the optimal achievement of VS.
