4 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
5 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
6 Blomgren, MichaelStuttering treatment outcomes measurement: assessing above and below the surfaceMost researchers now acknowledge that stuttering is a multidimensional disorder (Smith & Kelly, 1997). Therefore, any assessment of stuttering treatment requires a multifaceted approach. A multifaceted approach typically includes assessing both surface elements as well as elements of stuttering that...2007-11-01
7 Marcus, RobinTargeting anabolic impairment in response to resistance exercise in older adults with mobility impairments: potential mechanisms and rehabilitation approachesMuscle atrophy is associated with healthy aging (i.e., sarcopenia) and may be compounded by comorbidities, injury, surgery, illness, and physical inactivity. While a bout of resistance exercise increases protein synthesis rates in healthy young skeletal muscle, the effectiveness of resistance exerci...2012-01-01
8 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
9 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
10 Kumpfer, KarolEffectiveness of a culturally adapted strengthening families program 12-16 years for high-risk Irish familiesBACKGROUND: Evidence-based programs (EBPs) targeting effective family skills are the most cost effective for improving adolescent behavioural health. Cochrane Reviews have found Strengthening Families Program (SFP) to be the most effective substance abuse prevention intervention. Standardized cultur...2012-01-01
11 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
12 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
13 Griffiths, Marie M.; Cole Barry C.; Cannon, Grant W.T-cell receptors and collagen induced arthritis in H-2r mice.Mouse strains B10, B10.RIII, RIIIS/J and the F1 and backcross progeny arising from them were tested for susceptibility to porcine type II collagen-induced arthritis (PII-CIA). The clinically severe arthritis of rapid onset that is characteristic of PII-immunized B10.RIII mice developed predominantly...Genotype; Mice, Inbred C57BL; Sex Characteristics; T-Lymphocytes1993
14 Chapman, Kathy L.Early lexical characteristics of toddlers with cleft lip and palateMain Outcome Measures: The groups were compared for size of expressive lexicon reported on the MacArthur Communicative Development Inventory and the percentage of words beginning with obstruents and sonorants produced in a language sample. Differences between groups in the percentage of word initial...2014-01-01

17 Dibble, Leland E.Eccentric exercise versus usual-care with older cancer survivors: the impact on muscle and mobility- an exploratory pilot studyBackground: Resistance exercise programs with high compliance are needed to counter impaired muscle and mobility in older cancer survivors. To date outcomes have focused on older prostate cancer survivors, though more heterogeneous groups of older survivors are in-need. The purpose of this explorat...2011
18 Dibble, Leland E.Amplification of fall risk in Parkinson's disease: the influence of comorbiditiesLong term studies examining the progression of Parkinson's disease (PD) report the mean age of diagnosis to be in the mid sixties.' The diagnosis of PD typically .occurs after the presentation of motor deficits such as resting tremor, rigidity, hypokinesia, or postural instability. 2 Parkinson's di...2010
19 Wambaugh, Julie L.Sound production treatment: application with severe apraxia of speechAcquired apraxia of speech (AOS) has been shown to be responsive to behavioural intervention. Although numerous treatments for AOS have been developed, most have received limited study. Specifically, the AOS treatment evidence base is compromised by a lack of replication of treatment effects. Sound ...2010-01-01
20 Wambaugh, Julie L.Apraxia of speech: perceptual analysis of trisyllabic word productions across repeated sampling occasionsEarly apraxia of speech (AOS) research has characterized errors as being variable, resulting in a number of different error types being produced on repeated productions of the same stimuli. Conversely, recent research has uncovered greater consistency in errors, but there are limited data examining ...2011-01-01
21 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
22 Reel, JustineIt was hard, but it was good: a qualitative exploration of stress-related growth in division I intercollegiate athletesRecent research suggests that many individuals not only survive, but thrive as a result of life stress and trauma.
