Capturing interaction quality in long duration (simulated) space missions with wearables.
IEEE Transactions on Affective Computing. 2022: May 23.
PI: S.W.J. Kozlowski
Note: The simulated spaceflight information is not evident in the available abstract. From the abstract: “We evaluate our method on a 4-month simulated space mission where 5 participants wore Sociometric Badges and provided reports on their interactions in terms of effectiveness, frustration, and satisfaction. Our method provides an average ROC-AUC score of 0.64. Since we are not aware of any comparable baselines, we compare our method to hand-crafted features formerly utilized for cohesion estimation in similar scenarios and show it significantly outperforms them. We also present ablation studies where we replace the components in our approach with well-known alternatives and show that they provide better performance than their respective counterparts.”

A lymphatic route for a hyperbranched heteroglycan from Radix Astragali to trigger immune responses after oral dosing.
Carbohydr Polym. 2022 Sep 15;292:119653.
Note: From the abstract: “Gut barrier makes a huge research gap between in vivo and in vitro studies of orally bioactive polysaccharides: whether/how they contact the related cells in vivo. A hyperbranched heteroglycan RAP from Radix Astragali, exerting antitumor and immunomodulatory effects in vitro and in vivo, is an example. Here, we determined first that RAP’s antitumor activity is immune-dependent. Being undegraded and non-absorbing, RAP quickly entered Peyer’s patches (PPs) in 1 h where it directly targeted follicle dendritic cells and initiated antitumor immune responses. RAP was further delivered to mesenteric lymph node, bone marrow, and tumor. By contrast, the control Dendrobium officinale polysaccharide did not enter PPs. These findings revealed a blood/microbiota-independent and selective lymphatic route for orally administrated RAP to directly contact immune cells and trigger antitumor immune responses.”
