Effect of a high intensity quadriceps fatigue protocol on knee joint mechanics and muscle activation during gait in young adults.
The purpose of this study was to determine the effect of impaired quadriceps function on knee joint biomechanics and neuromuscular function during gait. Surface electromyograms, three-dimensional motion and ground reaction ...
State-related changes in MEG functional connectivity reveal the task-positive sensorimotor network
Functional connectivity measures applied to magnetoencephalography (MEG) data have the capacity to elucidate neuronal networks. However, the task-related modulation of these measures is essential to identifying the functional ...
Activation amplitude and temporal synchrony among back extensor and abdominal muscles during a controlled transfer task: comparison of men and women
Muscle synergies are important for spinal stability, but few studies examine temporal responses of spinal muscles to dynamic perturbations. This study examined activation amplitudes and temporal synergies among compartments ...
Pre-operative muscle activation patterns during walking are associated with TKA tibial implant migration.
Background Gait biomechanical variables have been associated with total knee arthroplasty tibial implant migration measured with Radiostereometric Analysis (RSA), but no studies have examined the role of the periarticular ...
Elastase and Tryptase Govern TNF alpha-Mediated Production of Active Chemerin by Adipocytes
Chemerin is a leukocyte chemoattractant and adipokine with important immune and metabolic roles. Chemerin, secreted in an inactive form prochemerin, undergoes C-terminal proteolytic cleavage to generate active chemerin, a ...
Population prevalence of high dose paracetamol in dispensed paracetamol/opioid prescription combinations: an observational study
BACKGROUND: Paracetamol (acetaminophen) is generally considered a safe medication, but is associated with hepatotoxicity at doses above doses of 4.0 g/day, and even below this daily dose in certain populations. METHODS: ...

Lessons learned from the implementation of a provincial breastfeeding policy in Nova Scotia, Canada and the implications for childhood obesity prevention
Healthy public policy plays a central role in creating environments that are supportive of health. Breastfeeding, widely supported as the optimal mode for infant feeding, is a critical factor in promoting infant health. ...
Mood Disorders among Older Adults Participating in Individual and Group Active Environments: "Me" versus "Us," or Both?
Involvement in physical activity is associated with improved mental health including better social skills, coping mechanisms, and lower rates of depression. However, evidence on whether group or individual active environments ...
Is There a Dose Response for Valgus Unloader Brace Usage on Knee Pain, Function, and Muscle Strength?
Abstract: Hurley ST, Hatfield Murdock GL, Stanish WD, Hubley-Kozey CL. Is there a dose response for valgus unloader brace usage on knee pain, function, and muscle strength? Objective: To examine whether there was a dose ...
