26 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
27 Hayes, Bradley T.Lack of neuromuscular origins of adaptation after a long-term stretching programContext: Static stretching is commonly used during the treatment and rehabilitation of orthopedic injuries to increase joint range of motion (ROM) and muscle flexibility. Understanding the physiological adaptations that occur in the neuromuscular system as a result of long-term stretching may provid...2012-01-01
28 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.

30 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

33 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
34 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

37 Wambaugh, Julie L.Acquired apraxia of speech: the effects of repeated practice and rate/rhythm control treatments on sound production accuracyPurpose: This investigation was designed to elucidate the effects of repeated practice treatment on sound production accuracy in individuals with apraxia of speech (AOS) and aphasia. A secondary purpose was to determine if the addition of rate/rhythm control to treatment provided further benefits be...2012-01-01
38 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
39 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
40 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
41 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
42 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
43 Newton, MariaElite adolescents athletes' achievement goals and beliefs concerning success in tennisThe present study examined the perceived causes of success among elite adolescent tennis players and investigated the function of gender in the interdependence of goal orientation and beliefs concerning tennis achievement. Male and female adolescents (N = 121) completed the Task and Ego Orientation ...Tennis; Athletes; Success1993-12
44 Foreman, K. Kenneth; Ballard, D. JamesAmplification of fall risk in Parkinsons 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
45 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
46 Symons, John DavidQuercetin: a treatment for hypertension? - a review of efficacy and mechanismsQuercetin is a polyphenolic flavonoid. Common sources in the diet are apples, onions, berries, and red wine. Epidemiological studies have found an inverse relationship between dietary quercetin intake and cardiovascular disease.

47 Shultz, Barry B.Lumbar segmental mobility disorders: comparison of two methods of defining abnormal displacement kinematics in a cohort of patients with non-specific mechanical low back painBackground: Lumbar segmental rigidity (LSR) and lumbar segmental instability (LSI) are believed to be associated with low back pain (LBP), and identification of these disorders is believed to be useful for directing intervention choices. Previous studies have focussed on lumbar segmental rotation an...2006
48 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
49 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
50 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
