Adaptations of skeletal muscle pyruvate dehydrogenase kinase in response to food-restriction in mitochondrial subpopulations
(Brock University, 2007-06-09)
University, 2006 Dr. Sandra J. Peters Pyruvate dehydrogenase (PDH) catalyses the decarboxylation of pyruvate, to form acetyl-CoA. PDH activity is down-regulated by intrinsic PDH kinases (predominantly PDK2 and PDK4 ...
The evolution, experience and drivers of collaboration in two non-profit river based organizations in New Brunswick, Canada

Bone properties and skeletal maturity in adolescent males, as assessed by quantitative ultrasound
(Brock University, 2007-06-04)
ABSTRACT Background: Previous studies have implied that weight-bearing, intense and prolonged physical activities optimize bone accretion during the grow^ing years. The majority of past inquiries have used dual-energy ...
The influence of skeletal muscle cell volume on the regulation of carbohydrate uptake and muscle metabolism
(Brock University, 2007-06-01)
This study investigated the regulation of carbohydrate metabolism and glucose uptake through changes in skeletal muscle cell volume. Using an established invitro isolated whole muscle model, soleus (SOL) and extensor ...
Coaches' use of and impressions of computer-mediated communication (CMC) media /
(Brock University, 2009-06-15)
The study examined coaches' usage of text-based computer-mediated communication (CMC) media (e.g., text-messaging, email) in the coach-player relationship. Data were collected by surveying Ontario-based male baseball ...
Determinants of left ventricular mass as measured by Doppler echocardiography in pre-adolescents
(Brock University, 2006-06-04)
This study examined factors contributing to the differences in left ventricular mass as measured by Doppler echocardiography in children. Fourteen boys (10.3 ± 0.3 years of age) and 1 1 girls (10.5 ± 0.4 years of age) ...
The effects of R(+)-lipoic acid supplementation on regulation of human skeletal muscle pyruvate dehydrogenase
(Brock University, 2006-06-04)
This thesis investigated whole body glucose disposal and the adaptive changes in skeletal muscle carbohydrate metabolism following 28 d of supplementation with 1000 mg R(+)-lipoic acid in young sedentary males (age, 22.1 ...
The impact of drug-induced dyskinesias on rapid alternating movements in patients with Parkinson's disease
(Brock University, 2005-06-15)
We investigated the likelihood that hypokinesia/bradykinesia coexist with druginduced dyskinesias (DID) in patients with Parkinson's disease (PD). The influence of dyskinesias on rapid alternating movements (RAM) was ...
The effectiveness of a health versus appearance message on pregnant women's intentions to exercise postpartum : the moderating role of self-monitoring
(Brock University, 2008-05-21)
Despite the confimied health benefits of exercise during the postpartum period, many new mothers are not sufficiently active. The present research aimed to examine the effectiveness of 2 types of messages on intention ...
