1 Porter, Louis-BassettPerceived stress and ambulatory blood pressure: an analysis of potential health behavior mechanismsAmbulatory blood pressure (ABP) has been linked to perceived stress. However, research is needed on the more specific processes that might be responsible for such a link. In the present study, we examined how potential health behavior mechanisms (weekly exercise, weekly alcohol consumption, and smok...Ambulatory blood pressure measurement; stress management2012-05
2 Paulsen, Tennille S.The influence of body position on intra-abdominal pressureIntroduction: Pelvic floor disorders (PFDs), including urinary incontinence and pelvic organ prolapse, are common among women. The study of PFDs has yet to be fully explored within exercise and sport science. The measurement of intra-abdominal pressure (IAP) during physical activity may help establi...Pelvic girdle - Research; Intra-abdominal pressure (IAP) - Research2012-05
3 Brandt, Ellissa KathrynAssessment of bilateral muscle function symmetry in female alpine skiersA recent theory for the high occurrence of ACL injuries in female athletes is the presence of asymmetric leg muscle function. Unfortunately, information relative to the bilateral muscle function for the legs of female alpine skiers is lacking. Therefore the primary aim of this project is to examine ...Anterior Cruciate Ligament - injuries; Skiers, Female; Single leg counter movement jump - Research; Single leg time to stabilization - Research2012-05
4 Caine, TeahThe influence of compression on behavioral estimates of frequency resolutionThis study focuses on the ability of the auditory system to decompose sounds into their individual frequency components. This "frequency resolution" is a fundamental aspect of auditory processing and is known to influence the perception of speech and other ecologically relevant stimuli. Invasive phy...Cochlear compression - Research; Cochlea's basilar membrane2012-05
5 Rush, JacobIs it not just for me to do what i will with mine own? Redressing the egalitarian's pareto dilemmaIn this paper, I consider one justification for people's sincere, daily choices - G.A.

8 Bennion, DavidValidation of force pedals for bilateral strength asymmetry testingOver 125,000 anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction surgeries are performed each year in the United States. Rates of re-injury to the reconstructed ACL or contralateral ACL up to 49% have been reported in certain populations. Altered biomechanics-including bilateral asymmetry in knee extensor st...Anterior Cruciate Ligament - Surgery; Anterior Cruciate Ligament Reconstruction - methods2014-12
9 Schott, Willem OlsonPromotion vs. education in choosing "real food"The agro-industrial system in the United States contributes to an abundance of human and ecological health problems from social injustices and public health issues to global warming and ecological degradation.

While humans do get some vitamin D from their diet, most of it is synthesized in the body, so it does not fit the definition of a vitamin-a molecule that must come from the diet. Vitamin D synthesis is initiated by the UVB (290-320 nm) portion of ultraviolet radiatio...Vitamin D deficiency; Flight attendants -- Nutrition; Air pilots -- Nutrition; Ultraviolet radiation -- Physiological effect2015-04
11 Robinson, MercedesProfessional vs. nonprofessional exercise advice and injury correlations in campus recreation facility usersPurpose: Risk of injury, when participating in an exercise program, is always present; however when the exercise program is poorly designed or not designed for the individual, the risk of injury increases significantly.
