Speech intelligibility of Taiwanese speakers with Parkinson’s disease: A pilot study of potential medication effect
Li-mei Chen

This study aims at observing the potential effect of Levodopa on speech production in patients with Parkinson’s disease (PD). Three Taiwanese-speaking adults diagnosed with stage 2, 3, and 4 in Hoehn and Yahr scale (1967) respectively were recruited for 60-minute recordings before and after medication. Maximum performance task (MPT, Rvachew, Hodge, & Ohberg, 2005), repetition of words, and …

P3HT-Based Nanoarchitectural Fano Solar Cells
Jih-Jen Wu

In this work, a 30% enrichment of the short-circuit current density (Jsc) in the metal oxide nanoarchitecture/P3HT hybrid solar cell is achieved by the incorporation of plasmonic gold-silica core-shell (Au@silica) nanoparticles (NPs) into the TiO2-nanorod (NR)-array-scaffolded ZnO NP/P3HT hybrid active layer. Because of the relatively thick active layer, the enhancement of the light …

Mechanosensitive store-operated calcium entry regulates the formation of cell polarity
Meng-Ru Shen

The formation of cell polarity is essential for directional migration, which plays an important role in the physiological and pathological processes of an organism. For example, neuronal cells migration during corticogenesis, leukocytes extravasation at inflammatory site, angiogenesis, wound repair and cancer metastasis are typical cases of directional migration. Previous studies have indicated …
