1 Lohse, Keith R.Modeling Longitudinal Outcomes: A Contrast of Two MethodsBackground: Repeated measures analysis of variance (ANOVA) is frequently used to model longitudinal data but does not appropriately account for within-person correlations over time, does not explicitly model time, and cannot flexibly handle missing data. In contrast, mixed-effects regression address...mixed-effects regression; ANOVA; learning; development

3 Friedrich, Frances; Walker, James A.Effects of parietal injury on covert orienting of visual attentionThe cognitive act of shifting attention from one place in the visual field to another can be accomplished covertly without muscular changes. The act can be viewed in terms of three internal mental operations: disengagement of attention from its current focus, moving attention to the target, and enga...Dominance, Cerebral; Attention; Extinction, Psychological1984-07
4 Kleinschmidt, Julia J.; Grosshans, Onie; Caserta, Michael; Saffel-Shrier, Susan; Tuohig, GailIntervening in midlife for optimal retirement: a guide for health educatorsFactors contributing to successful retirement deserve increased attention given the rapid growth of the aging population.

8 Symons, John DavidNa-H exchange inhibition with Cariporide limits functional impairment caused by repetitive ischemiaIntracellular calcium ([Ca]i) overload on reperfusion may be one of the mechanisms responsible for ischemia-induced regional myocardial dysfunction. Because inhibiting the Na-H exchanger (NHE) limits intracellular sodium ([Na]i) and subsequent [Ca]i accumulation, we hypothesized that NHE inhibition ...Reperfusion; intracellular calcium; conscious pigs1998
9 Martin, JimValidation of a mathematical model for road cycling powerThis investigation sought to determine if cycling power could be accurately modeled. A mathematical model of cycling power was derived, and values for each model parameter were determined. A bicycle-mounted power measurement system was validated by comparison with a laboratory ergometer.Aerodynamic drag; Rolling resistance; Air velocity; Gradient; Cycling power; Potential energy; Kinetic energy1998
10 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.

11 Eisenman, Patricia A.Hormonal changes throughout the menstrual cycle and increased anterior cruciate ligament laxity in femalesOBJECTIVE: To determine whether women experience significantly greater anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) laxity in conjunction with estrogen and progesterone surges during a normal 28- to 30-day menstrual cycle. DESIGN AND SETTING: Serial estrogen and progesterone levels were measured via radioimmuno...Estrogen; Progesterone; Knee Arthrometer; Radioimmunoassay1999-04
12 Martin, JimTime course of learning to produce maximum cycling powerThe purpose of this investigation was to determine the time course and magnitude of learning effects associated with repeated maximum cycling power tests and to determine if cycle-trained men exhibit different learning effects than active men who are not cycle-trained. Cycle-trained (N = 13) and act...Training; Pedaling; Cycle-trained2000
13 Shaw, Janet M.Long-term exercise using weighted vests prevents hip bone loss in postmenopausal womenBackground. Bone mineral density (BMD) is a primary risk factor for hip fracture. We studied the effect of long-term weighted vest plus jumping exercise on hip BMD in postmenopausal women as a strategy for reducing hip fracture risk. Methods. Eighteen postmenopausal women (age 5 64.1 6 1.6 years a...2000
14 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
15 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
16 Digre, Kathleen B.; Warner, Judith E. A.; Bernstein, Paul S.; Alder, Stephen C.Vitamin A in the cerebrospinal fluid of patients with and without idiopathic intracranial hypertensionWe quantified vitamin A in the cerebrospinal fluid of patients with idiopathic intracranial hypertension, elevated intracranial pressure of other causes and normal intracranial pressure. Vitamin A could be detected by high-pressure liquid chromatography in most of the specimens. There was a signific...Chromatography, High Pressure Liquid; Headache2002-11
17 Martin, Jim; Pardyjak, Eric R.Training with power measurement: a new era in cycling trainingPROVIDING CYCLISTS WITH A reliable measure of exercise intensity presents unique challenges. Environmental factors such as wind speed, road grade and surface texture, and air density interactively influence the resistance encountered during cycling and thus alter the speed a cyclist can maintain wh...Exercise; Intensity; Heart rate2003
18 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
19 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.

20 Martin, JimTorso stabilization reduces the metabolic cost of producing cycling powerMany researchers have used cycling exercise to evaluate muscle metabolism. Inherent in such studies is an assumption that changes in whole-body respiration are due solely to respiration at the working muscle. Some researchers, however, have speculated that the metabolic cost of torso stabilization...Torso stabilization; Efficiency; Economy; Static contraction; Work2005
21 Eisenman, Patricia A.; Symons, John David; White, Andrea T.Eccentric strain at long muscle length evokes the repeated bout effect.The repeated bout effect (RBE) is a phenomenon characterized by less delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS) and torque deficit after the second of 2 separate eccentric exercise bouts.

23 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
24 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
