Soil environmental capacity (EC) of heavy metals (HMs) can be used as an index to evaluate the pollution status of HMs and to provide basic data for HM remediation. However, the commonly used soil EC for HMs usually are prone to bias due to the lack of local background values (BVs) and the consideration of the contribution from various HM sources. Here, a modified method was proposed to estimate the soil EC by integrating the establishment of local BVs and the quantitative evaluation of contributions from HM sources in an intensive agricultural area of Shouguang city, China.

Humans and many animals devalue future rewards as a function of time (temporal discounting). Increased discounting has been linked to various psychiatric conditions, including substance-use-disorders, behavioral addictions, and obesity. Despite its high intra-individual stability, temporal discounting is partly under contextual control. Read More

Various nanoscopic channels of roughly equal diameter and length facilitate single-file diffusion at vastly different rates. The underlying variance of the energetic barriers to transport is poorly understood. First, water partitioning into channels so narrow that individual molecules cannot overtake each other incurs an energetic penalty. Read More

Neuroplasticity follows nervous system injury in the presence or absence of rehabilitative treatments. Rehabilitative interventions can be used to modulate adaptive neuroplasticity, reducing motor impairment and improving activities of daily living in patients with brain lesions. Learning principles guide some rehabilitative interventions. Read More
