  • Influence of father-infant relationship on infant development: A father-involvement intervention 

    Rempel, Lynn A.; Rempel, John K.; Khuc, Toan Nang; Vui, Le Thi (APA, 2017)
    We examined the extent to which fathers can be taught and encouraged to develop positive relationships with their children, especially in infancy, and the effects of this fathering intervention on infant development. A ...
  • Saturation of SERCA's lipid annulus may protect against its thermal inactivation. 

    Fajardo, Val Andrew; Trojanowski, Natalie S.; Castelli, Laura; Miotto, Paula; Amoye, Foyinsola; Ward, Wendy E.; Tupling, A. Russell; LeBlanc, Paul (Elsevier, 2017-01-26)
    The sarco(endo)plasmic reticulum Ca2+-ATPase (SERCA) pumps are integral membrane proteins that catalyze the active transport of Ca2+ into the sarcoplasmic reticulum, thereby eliciting muscle relaxation. SERCA pumps are ...
  • Do Neuro-Muscular Adaptations Occur in Endurance-Trained Boys and Men? 

    Cohen, Rotem; Mitchell, Cam; Dotan, Raffy; Gabriel, David; Klentrou, Panagiota; Falk, Bareket (2010)
    Most research on the effects of endurance training has focused on endurance training's health-related benefits and metabolic effects in both children and adults. The purpose of this study was to examine the neuromuscular ...
  • Canadian Society for Exercise Physiology Position Paper: Resistance Training in Children and Adolescents 

    Behm, David G.; Faigenbaum, Avery D.; Falk, Bareket; Klentrou, Panagiota (2008)
    Many position stands and review papers have refuted the myths associated with resistance training (RT) in children and adolescents. With proper training methods, RT for children and adolescents can be relatively safe and ...
  • The Clinical Translation Gap in Child Health Exercise Research: A Call for Disruptive Innovation 

    Ashish, Naveen; Bamman, Marcas; Cerny, Frank; Cooper, Dan; d'Memecourt, Pierre; Eisenmann, Joey; Ericson, Dawn; Fahey, John; Falk, Bareket; Gabriel, Davera; Kahn, Michael; Kemper, Han; Leu, Szu-Yun; McMurray, Robert; Nixon, Patricia; Olin, J; Pianosi, Paolo; Purucker, Mary; Radom-Aizik, Shlomit; Taylor, Amy (Wiley, 2015-02)
    In children, levels of play, physical activity, and fitness are key indicators of health and disease and closely tied to optimal growth and development. Cardiopulmonary exercise testing (CPET) provides clinicians with ...
  • The electromyographic threshold in boys and men 

    Pitt, Brynlynn; Dotan, Raffy; Millar, Jordan; Long, Devon; Tokuno, Craig; O'Brien, Thomas (Springer, 2015-01-15)
    Abstract Background Children have been shown to have higher lactate (LaTh) and ventilatory (VeTh) thresholds than adults, which might be explained by lower levels of type-II motor-unit (MU) recruitment. However, the ...
  • Higher PLIN5 but not PLIN3 content in isolated skeletal muscle mitochondria following acute in vivo contraction in rat hindlimb 

    Ramos, Sofhia; MacPherson, Rebecca E. K.; Turnbull, Patrick C; Bott, Kirsten N.; LeBlanc, Paul; Ward, Wendy E.; Peters, Sandra J. (American Physiological Society, 2014-08-22)
    Contraction-mediated lipolysis increases the association of lipid droplets and mitochondria, indicating an important role in the passage of fatty acids from lipid droplets to mitochondria in skeletal muscle. PLIN3 and PLIN5 ...
  • Does bracing affect bone health in women with adolescent idiopathic scoliosis? 

    Akseer, Nasreen; Kish, Kimberly; Rigby, W Alan; Greenway, Matthew; Klentrou, Panagiota; Wilson, Philip M; Falk, Bareket (BioMed Central, 2015)
    Purpose: Adolescent idiopathic scoliosis (AIS) is often associated with low bone mineral content and density (BMC, BMD). Bracing, used to manage spine curvature, may interfere with the growth-related BMC accrual, resulting ...
  • EARLY LIFE EXPOSURE TO GENISTEIN AND DAIDZEIN DISRUPTS STRUCTURAL DEVELOPMENT OF REPRODUCTIVE ORGANS IN FEMALE MICE 

    Kaludjerovic, Jovana; Chen, Jianmin; Ward, Wendy E. (Taylor & Francis, 2012-04-04)
    In mice, exposure to isoflavones (ISO), abundant in soy infant formula, during the first 5 d of life alters structural and functional development of reproductive organs. Effects of longer exposures are unknown. The study ...
  • Isoflavone exposure throughout suckling results in improved adult bone health in mice 

    Dinsdale, E.C.; Kaludjerovic, J; Ward, W.E. (Cambridge University Press, 2012-02-15)
    Exposure to isoflavones (ISO), abundant in soy protein infant formula, for the first 5 days of life results in higher bone mineral density (BMD),greater trabecular connectivity and higher fracture load of lumbar vertebrae ...
