    • Elasticity of cells was increased by nonthermal atmospheric pressure micro-DBD plasma treatment.
    • Chemical changes of cells induced by the plasma treatment were observed by Raman spectroscopy.
  2. Study on morphological characteristics and microscopic structure of medicinal organs of Pulsatilla chinensis (Bunge) Regel

    Wen-Hao Wang, Jun Yang, Hua-Sheng Peng and Jiang-Ping Qian

    Joint points were found in the underground medicinal organs of P. chinensis for the first time. Through the observation of P. chinensis anatomical structure, we found that its medicinal part consisted of roots and rhizomes.

  3. Relationship between skin color and solar elastosis in aged Asian skin: A colorimetric–pathologic correlation

    Dai Hyun Kim, Ga Na Oh, In Hyuk Kwon, Soo Hong Seo, Young Chul Kye and Hyo Hyun Ahn

    The solar elastosis grade increased, according to patient age; however, colorimetric skin color data did not correlate with the degree of solar elastosis. Elderly cutaneous color changes and solar elastosis are separate, age-related phenomena.

  4. Modified cuckoo search algorithm in microscopic image segmentation of hippocampus

    Shouvik Chakraborty, Sankhadeep Chatterjee, Nilanjan Dey, Amira S. Ashour, Ahmed S. Ashour, Fuqian Shi and Kalyani Mali

    Version of Record online: 30 MAY 2017 | DOI: 10.1002/jemt.22900

    • Modified cuckoo search algorithm based on McCulloch's method is proposed for Hippocampus segmentation.
    • Optimized multi-threshold levels using Tsallis entropy method as an objective functions achieved the superior segmentation.
  5. A graphic approach to the analysis of a large X-ray microanalysis dataset obtained via SEM–EDS

    N. Yu. Parkhimovich, A.R. Salikhov and M.F. Imayev

    Version of Record online: 27 MAY 2017 | DOI: 10.1002/jemt.22897
