8 Symons, John DavidHyperhomocysteinemia evoked by folate depletion: effects on coronary and carotid arterial functionHigh circulating concentrations of homocysteine (ie, hyperhomocysteinemia [Hhcy]) impair the vascular function of peripheral conduit arteries and arterioles perfusing splanchnic and skeletal muscle regions. The effects of HHcy on coronary resistance vessel function and other indexes of vascular func...Hyperhomocysteinemia; Coronary resistance artery; Arterial stiffness; Arterial permeability; Vascular reactivity; Folate depletion; Rat2002
9 Martin, JimFourier series approximations and low pass filtering: facilitating learning of digital signal processing for biomechanics studentsFiltering raw biomechanical data to remove noise is a key first step that must be performed prior to further biomechanical analysis. Raw biomechanical data are usually filtered to remove noise above a specified cutoff frequency, a process known as "low pass filtering". The concept of frequency conte...2009-01-01
10 Newton, MariaThe influence of a simulated 'pep talk' on athlete inspiration, situational motivation, and emotionCoaches routinely use pep talks to inspire and motivate athletes, but the efficacy of this strategy has not been empirically examined. Conceptually based on Thrash and Elliot's [3, 4] inspiration research this study explored the impact of a simulated pep talk on inspiration, inspiration to perform, ...2011-01-01
11 Newton, MariaRelationship of task and ego orientation to performance: cognitive content, affect, and attributions in bowlingThe purpose of the present study was to examine the relationship of individual differences in goal orientation to mid-activity cognitive content and affect and post-performance attributions across three games of bowling. Forty-seven undergraduate students enrolled in bowling activity classes were r...Goal-directed behavior; Task and Ego Orientation in Sport Questionnaire; Sport psychology1993
12 Symons, John David; Jalili, Thunder; Litwin, Sheldon E.Quercetin-supplemented diets lower blood pressure and attenuate cardiac hypertrophy in rats with aortic constrictionQuercetin (Q), a flavonoid found in berries and onions, can reduce blood pressure in hypertensive animals and inhibit signal transduction pathways in vitro that regulate cardiac hypertrophy. We hypothesized that quercetin could prevent cardiovascular complications in rats with abdominal aortic con...2006
13 Martin, JimNo differences in cycling efficiency between world-class and recreational cyclistsThe aim of this experiment was to compare the efficiency of elite cyclists with that of trained and recreational cyclists. Male subjects (N =69)performed an incremental exercise test to exhaustion on an electrically braked cycle ergometer. Cadence was maintained between 80-90rpm.Gross efficiency; Delta efficiency; Cycling efficiency; Economy; VO2peak2004
14 Dibble, Leland E.Development of a scale to assess avoidance behavior due to a fear of falling: the fear of falling avoidance behavior questionnaireBackground. A history of falls or imbalance may lead to a fear of falling, which may lead to self-imposed avoidance of activity; this avoidance may stimulate a vicious cycle of deconditioning and subsequent falls. Objective. The purpose of this study was to develop a questionnaire that would quanti...2011
15 Symons, John DavidInfluence of folate on arterial permeability and stiffness in the absence or presence of hyperhomocysteinemiaElevation of plasma total homocysteine (tHcy) is associated with an increased risk of cardiovascular disease, but the underlying mechanisms are not well understood.1 Worldwide, the most common cause of mild hyperhomocysteinemia (HHcy) is deficiency of folate.2,3 Some4-8 but not all9,10 studies sugg...Cystathionine B-synthase; Carotid artery; Aorta; Cardiovascular risk factors; Folate; Hyperhomocysteinemia; Arterial permeability; Arterial stiffness2006
16 Hannon, James C.Determination of step rate thresholds corresponding to physical activity intensity classifications in adultsBackground: Current recommendations call for adults to be physically active at moderate and/or vigorous intensities. Given the popularity of walking and running, the use of step rates may provide a practical and inexpensive means to evaluate ambulatory intensity. Thus, the purpose of this study wa...2011
17 Caserta, Michael; Lund, Dale A.Toward the development of an inventory of daily widowed life (IDWL): guided by the duel process model of coping with bereavementThe Dual Process Model of Coping with Bereavement (Stroebe & Schut, 1999) suggests that the most effective adaptation involves oscillaton between two coping processes: loss-orientation (LO) and restoration-orientation (RO).

23 Hunt, Steven C.; Adams, Ted; Hopkins, Paul N.; Hunt, Steven C.ATGL gene is associated with free fatty acids, triglycerides, and type 2 diabetesAdipose triglyceride lipase (ATGL) was recently described to predominantly perform the initial step in triglyceride hydrolysis and therefore seems to play a pivotal role in the lipolytic catabolism of stored fat in adipose tissue. In the first study investigating genetic variations within the ATGL g...Diabete, Type 2; ATGL; Fat; Triglycerides2006
