The importance of the head in dissipating body heat under hot conditions is well recognised, although very little is known about local differences in sweat secretion across the surface of the head. In this study, we focused on the intra-segmental distribution of head sweating. Ten healthy males were exposed to passive heating and exercise-induced(More)

This communication presents the results obtained in tubular aggregates of 24 enzyme histochemical techniques for demonstrating activity of oxidoreductases, transferases, hydrolases and isomerases. The activity characteristics of the tubular aggregates in m. gluteus medius of 18 patients with diseases of the neuromuscular system were almost identical. A high(More)

Over the last 30 years, research into the neuromuscular apparatus, has expanded greatly. Multidisciplinary investigations have rapidly advanced our understanding both of diseases and of the basic neuromuscular mechanisms. The mode of pathological reaction of the neuromuscular apparatus is now quite well understood. The most notable aspect of the reaction of(More)
The distribution of type-I and type-II fibers in 9 different parts of the musculi triceps brachii, longissimus dorsi, gluteus medius, and biceps femoris was studied to determine whether biopsies from these muscles give reliable information. All 4 investigated muscles were not homogeneous in their fiber-type distribution. Large differences existed among(More)
Fatiguability is a determining characteristic of different muscle fibre types. An important aspect, indirectly related to fatiguability, gluconeogenesis, was investigated by observing fructose-1,6-diphosphatase (FDP) activity in experimental models prepared in rabbits by cross-reinnervation of the fatigue-resistant m.soleus (postural muscle) and the highly(More)
