Plasma adrenocorticotropin, cortisol and catecholamines response to various exercises.
The responses of plasma adrenocorticotropin (ACTH), cortisol, noradrenaline and adrenaline in 5 Thoroughbred horses to an incremental exercise and 2 relative workload exercises, at 105 and 80%Expand

Assessment of autonomic nervous function by power spectral analysis of heart rate variability in the horse.
We studied power spectral analysis of heart rate (HR) variability in the horse, with the hypothesis that the quantitative information provided by the spectral analysis of HR variability reflects theExpand

EMG activity of the muscles of the neck and forelimbs during different forms of locomotion.
We recorded the electromyographic (EMG) activity of 7 skeletal muscles in the forequarters and 1 in the hindquarters of 6 Thoroughbred horses during overground walking, swimming in a circular pool,Expand

Effects of novelty stress on neuroendocrine activities and running performance in thoroughbred horses.
This study investigated the effects of novelty stress on neuroendocrine activities and running performance in Thoroughbred horses. First, to examine the neuroendocrine responses to novelty stress, weExpand

Muscle Fiber Population and Biochemical Properties of Whole Body Muscles in Thoroughbred Horses
We examine the muscle fiber population and metabolic properties of skeletal muscles from the whole body in Thoroughbred horses. Postmortem samples were taken from 46 sites in six Thoroughbred horsesExpand

Influence of training on autonomic nervous function in horses: evaluation by power spectral analysis of heart rate variability.
We studied the influence of training on autonomic nervous function in the horse. For this purpose, Holter electrocardiogram (ECG) was recorded before and after training from 24 Thoroughbred horsesExpand

Effect of training and detraining on monocarboxylate transporter (MCT) 1 and MCT4 in Thoroughbred horses
The aim of this study was to investigate the effects of training and detraining on the monocarboxylate transporter (MCT) 1 and MCT4 levels in the gluteus medius muscle of Thoroughbred horses. TwelveExpand

Mechanism of reduction in alveolar-arterial PO2 difference by helium breathing in the exercising horse.
Previous work has shown that replacing N2 in air with He at the same inspired O2 fraction reduces the exercise-induced alveolar-arterial PO2 difference (AaPO2) in horses but has provided no mechanismExpand

Use of an instrument sandwiched between the hoof and shoe to measure vertical ground reaction forces and three-dimensional acceleration at the walk, trot, and canter in horses.
OBJECTIVE To develop an instrument that could be sandwiched between the hoof and shoe of horses and that would reliably measure vertical ground reaction forces and three-dimensional acceleration atExpand
