1 Newton, MariaEffects of a classroom-based physical activity program on childrens physical activity levelsHigh levels of physical inactivity are evident among many American children. To address this problem, providing physical activity (PA) during the school day within the CSPAP framework, is one strategy to increase children's PA. Thus, the purpose of this study was to examine the effects of a classroo...2014-01-01

4 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
5 Martin, JimUnderstanding sprint-cycling performance: the integration of muscle power, resistance, and modelingSprint-cycling performance is paramount to competitive success in over half the world-championship and Olympic races in the sport of cycling.

9 Podlog, Leslie WilliamA review of return to sport concerns following injury rehabilitation: practitioner strategies for enhancing recovery outcomesObjectives: Evidence suggests that competitive athletes returning to sport following injury rehabilitation may experience a range of psychosocial concerns. The purpose of this paper is to review some of the psychosocial stresses common among returning athletes and to provide practitioner strategies ...2011-01-01
10 Podlog, Leslie WilliamThe effect of variety expectations on interest, enjoyment, and locus of causality in exerciseMost attempts to influence intrinsic motivation have focused on contextual support for basic need satisfaction, including the provision of autonomy support, structure, and interpersonal involvement (e.g., Edmunds et al. in Eur J Soc Psychol 38:375-388, 2008). This study explored the extent to which ...2012-01-01

12 Hannon, James C.Physical activity differences by birthplace and sex in youth of Mexican HeritageBackground: One of the goals of Healthy People 2020 is to increase physical activity (PA) and reduce health disparities among different racial and ethnic segments of the U.S. population. Few studies have been conducted to examine PA differences by birthplace and sex in youth of Mexican heritage. Met...2012-01-01
13 Hargroder, Jessica Lynn; Pham, Ann XuanPreventing falls in the elderlyExercise programs have been found to reduce falls in the elderly. In a study published in 2009, only 8 weeks of exercise training 3 times/week (including calistinics, muscle power, body balance, and walking training ) decreased the incidence of falls in the elderly population by 12% (Iwamoto, et al...Trapeze Interactive Poster2010-05-18

15 Dycus, Tiffany M; Parker, Marcus GeraldMaintaining balance through fitness funThe risk for falls increases dramatically with age. Approximately 25% - 35% of people over the age of 65 years experiences one or more falls each year (Shumway-Cook, 1997). The Berg Balance Test has been shown to have moderately good sensitivity, and high specificity, and therefore is a good pred...Trapeze Interactive Poster2010-05-18
16 Kowalski, Christopher Aaron; Deesing, Michole Ann; Deeter, Nicholas B.; Symons, John DavidCeramide-induced disruption of endothelial nitric oxide synthase dimerization in bovine aortic endothelial cells (BAECs) is not secondary to peroxynitrite formationAn estimated 23.6 million individuals in the United States have diabetes and of those 90-95% have type II diabetes. Cardiovascular complications (e.g., hypertension and vascular dysfunction) are four-fold more prevalent in patients with type II diabetes. To gain insight into mechanisms responsib...Ceramide-induced disruption; Nitric oxide synthase dimerization; Bovine aortic endothelial cells; BAEC; Peroxynitrite formation; Trapeze Interactive Poster2010-01-20
17 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
18 Newton, MariaSenior olympians' achievement goals and motivational responsesThe purpose of this study was to examine the motivational perspectives of athletes participating in the Senior Olympic Games.

23 Jacques, Kerry M.Arf 1 dissociates from the clathrin adaptor GGA prior to being inactivated by Arf GTPase-activating proteinsThe effectors of monomeric GTP-binding proteins can influence interactions with GTPase-activating proteins (GAPs) in two ways. In one case, effector and GAP binding to the GTP-binding protein is mutually exclusive. In another case, the GTP-binding protein bound to an effector is the substrate for ...2002
24 Newton, MariaPredicting the use of sexual initiation tactics in a sample of college womenSignificant attention has been focused on women's initiation of sexual contact with men and the point at which this initiation becomes sexual aggression.
