1 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 Assessing the validity of the weight pressures in sport scale for male athletesMale athletes are subject to sociocultural pressures to attain a lean and muscular physique (e.g., media images), as well as weight pressures from the sport environment (e.g., performance). The purpose of our study was to examine the validity and reliability of a scale designed to measure sport-spec...2013-01-01
4 Semantic feature analysis: Application to confrontation naming of actions in aphasiaBackground: Despite advances in the development and testing of therapies for verb retrieval impairments in aphasia, generalization effects of treatment remain a challenge. Semantic Feature Analysis (SFA) is a word retrieval treatment that has been reported to result in generalized responding to untr...2014-01-01
5 Associations of self-reported physical activity types and levels with quality of life, depression symptoms, and mortality in hemodialysis patients: The DOPPSBackground and objectives Physical activity has been associated with better health status in diverse populations, but the association in patients on maintenance hemodialysis is less established. Patient-reported physical activities and associations with mortality, health-related quality of life, and...2014-01-01
6 Effects 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
7 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
8 Psychosocial factors in sports injury rehabilitation and return to playThe goal of this review is to provide insight into the principles and practices that guide psychological intervention with injury and in so doing cultivate a psychologically minded approach to injury for the medical provider. The chapter is divided into two parts. Part 1 provides an overview of the ...2014-01-01
9 Ceramide-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.1 The mechanism(s) responsible for increased s...2010-01-01
10 Patient-specific instrumentation in total knee arthroplasty provides no improvement in component alignmentImproved component alignment in TKA remains a commonly cited benefit of MRI based patient-specific instrumentation (PSI). We hypothesized that PSI would lead to improved alignment versus traditional instrumentation (TI) during primary TKA. Fifty-eight knees (54 patients) that underwent TKA with PSI...2014-01-01
11 The use of a modular titanium baseplate with a press-fit keel implanted with a surface cementing technique for primary total knee arthroplastyLittle data exists regarding outcomes following TKA performed with surface-cementation for the fixation of modular tibial baseplates with press-fit keels.Thus, we retrospectively reviewed the clinical and radiographic outcomes of 439 consecutive primary TKAs performed with surface cemented tibial co...2014-01-01
12 Modified response elaboration training: a systematic extension with replicationsBackground: Response Elaboration Training (RET; Kearns, 1985) has been found to consistently result in increased production of content in discourse with persons with aphasia. Positive treatment effects have been reported for persons representing a variety of aphasia types and severities. RET was mod...2012-01-01
13 It 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. Both scientific and anecdotal evidence support the notion of psychosocial growth and development following stress in athletes. The purpose of this study was to gain an understanding of ...2012-01-01
14 Effect of leucine supplementation on fat free mass with prolonged hypoxic exposure during a 13-day trek to Everest Base Camp: A double-blind randomized studyLoss of body weight and fat free mass (FFM) are commonly noted with prolonged exposure to hypobaric hypoxia. Recent evidence suggests protein supplementation, specifically leucine, may potentially attenuate loss of FFM in subcaloric conditions during normoxia. The purpose of this study was to determ...2014-01-01

16 Cytosolic, but not mitochondrial, oxidative stress likely contributes to cardiac hypertrophy resulting from cardiac specific GLUT4 deletion in miceWe hypothesized that oxidative stress may contribute to the development of hypertrophy observed in mice with cardiac specific ablation of the insulin sensitive glucose transporter gene (GLUT4, G4H-/-4 ). Measurements of oxidized glutathione (GSSG) in isolated mitochondria and whole heart homogenates...2012-01-01
17 Case-control study of risk factors for spasmodic dysphonia: a comparison with other voice disordersObjectives: This epidemiology study examined risk factors uniquely associated with spasmodic dysphonia (SD). Study Design: Case-control. Methods: A questionnaire was administered to 150 patients with SD (with and without coexisting vocal tremor) and 136 patients with other structural, neurological, ...2012-01-01

19 Teacher awareness and implementation of food and physical activity policies in Utah Elementary Schools, 2010Introduction Schools are a key venue for childhood obesity prevention policies. The objective of this study was to examine factors associated with elementary school teacher awareness and implementation of their schools' food and physical activity policies. Methods We collected data through an online...2011-01-01
20 Prevalence and causes of dysphonia in a large treatment-seeking populationObjective: To determine the prevalence and common causes of dysphonia as diagnosed by primary care physicians (PCPs) and otolaryngologists, and to evaluate differences in etiologies offered by these providers. Study Design: Retrospective analysis of data from a large, nationally representative admin...2012-01-01
21 Aerodynamic drag area of cyclists determined with field-based measuresAerodynamic drag is an important factor in the performance of competitive track and road cyclists. Recently we used wind-tunnel testing to validate a practical measure of aerodynamic drag derived from a field test. We present here instructions for performing the field test on a straight flat road or...2006-01-01
22 Fourier 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
23 Understanding 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.
