In a recent study, researchers from the Xishuangbanna Tropical Botanical Garden demonstrated that ETHYLENE RESPONSE FACTOR1 played an important role in floral initiation by directly modulating the expression of FLOWERING LOCUS T (FT), a major integrator of inductive flowering pathways.
A research team led by Dr. RAO Lilin from the Institute of Psychology demonstrated the self–other moral bias at the conceptual level and found that the self–other moral bias was expressed in natural language on the Internet.
Researchers from Center for Excellence in Brain Science and Intelligence Technology and Shanghai Institute of Materia Medica revealed the structural basis of antidepressant ketamine action on human N-methyl-d-aspartate (NMDA) receptors. The finding provided the structural basis of ketamine binding and action on human NMDA receptors, and paved the way for future development of ketamine-based antidepressants.
In a recent study, researchers from the Xishuangbanna Tropical Botanical Garden used a systematic meta-analysis to summarize available knowledge on the contribution of sulfur compounds on plants heavy metals uptake from soils media. They specifically focused on sulfur type and its stress intensity, type of heavy metal, plant species and accumulating organs, and soil pH value.
Extant literature suggests that patients with bipolar disorder exhibit impairment in cognitive empathy, but findings on affective empathy are inconsistent. Dr. Raymond Chan from the Institute of Psychology has worked with local and international collaborators to examine the empathy-related resting-state functional connectivity in patients with bipolar disorder.
The study confirms that effects of reward learning can be free from the constraints of consciousness. Before being accepted for publishing, its preprint at bioRxiv has been cited by a recent review article published in Progress in Neurobiology which proposes a Predictive Global Neuronal Workspace (PGNW) model for visual consciousness.
