Chung-Ang University is a notable private university based in Seoul.Starting as a church-run kindergarten in 1918, CAU transformed into a female school for kindergarten teachers in 1922 and was granted university status in 1953. The university claimed 2018 to be their centennial. It has 33,600 undergraduates, 5,200 graduates, 700 professors and 500 more part-time teaching staff.CAU is the first in South Korea to offer courses in Pharmacy, Business Management, Mass Communication, Advertising & Public Relations, Creative Writing, Photography, and Drama & Film Studies, and is active in Pharmacy, Media and the Arts.

The present invention relates to an auto-focus system and method based on a sensor, using hierarchical extraction and motion estimation for an image. The auto-focus method may include the steps of: (a) extracting a phase difference image from a sensed image; (b) extracting a robust feature image which satisfies a preset reference with respect to noise and out-of-focus blur, from the phase difference image; and (C) estimating a motion vector for lens shift from the feature image.

The present invention relates to a method for manufacturing a transgenic plant producing immunogenic complex proteins and immunogenic complex proteins obtained therefrom and, more specifically, to a method for manufacturing a transgenic plant producing immunogenic complex proteins, a plant manufactured by the method, and immunogenic complex proteins obtained from the plant, wherein the method comprises the steps of: (a) manufacturing a transgenic plant expressing an antigen; (b) manufacturing a transgenic plant expressing an antibody specific to the antigen in step (a); and (c) cross-breeding the plants in steps (a) and (b) to manufacture a cross-bred plant. Immunogenic complex proteins can be mass-produced through the method for manufacturing a transgenic plant, comprising steps (a) to (c), and the transgenic plant manufactured by the method, of the present invention. Further, the immunogenic complex proteins (antigen-antibody complex) obtained from the plant have a gigantic four-dimensional structure, thereby having an excellent immune reaction boosting effect, thus exhibiting an excellent antibody producing capacity in a host animal, even without the use of an immune adjuvant.

The importance of the hippocampal system for rapid learning and memory is well recognized, but its contributions to a cardinal feature of children's cognitive development-the transition from procedure-based to memory-based problem-solving strategies-are unknown. Here we show that the hippocampal system is pivotal to this strategic transition. Longitudinal functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) in 7-9-year-old children revealed that the transition from use of counting to memory-based retrieval parallels increased hippocampal and decreased prefrontal-parietal engagement during arithmetic problem solving. Longitudinal improvements in retrieval-strategy use were predicted by increased hippocampal-neocortical functional connectivity. Beyond childhood, retrieval-strategy use continued to improve through adolescence into adulthood and was associated with decreased activation but more stable interproblem representations in the hippocampus. Our findings provide insights into the dynamic role of the hippocampus in the maturation of memory-based problem solving and establish a critical link between hippocampal-neocortical reorganization and children's cognitive development.

How animals achieve their specific body size is a fundamental, but still largely unresolved, biological question. Over the past decades, studies on the insect model system have provided some important insights into the process of body size determination and highlighted the importance of insulin/insulin-like growth factor signaling. Fat body, the Drosophila counterpart of liver and adipose tissue, senses nutrient availability and controls larval growth rate by modulating peripheral insulin signaling. Similarly, insulin-like growth factor I produced from liver and muscle promotes postnatal body growth in mammals. Organismal growth is tightly coupled with the process of sexual maturation wherein the sex steroid hormone attenuates body growth. This review summarizes some important findings from Drosophila and mammalian studies that shed light on the general mechanism of animal size determination. © 2013 Springer Basel.

We consider a decaying magnetic dark matter explaining the X-ray line at 3.55keV shown recently from XMM-Newton observations. We introduce two singlet Majorana fermions that have almost degenerate masses and fermion-portal couplings with a charged scalar of weak scale mass. In our model, an approximate Z2 symmetry gives rise to a tiny transition magnetic moment between the Majorana fermions at one loop. The heavier Majorana fermion becomes a thermal dark matter due to the sizable fermion-portal coupling to the SM charged fermions. We find the parameter space for the masses of dark matter and charged scalar and their couplings, being consistent with both the relic density and the X-ray line. Various phenomenological constraints on the model are also discussed. © 2014 The Authors.
