The load of student's backpacks has raised questions over the safety and health of schoolchildren everywhere. The purpose of this study is to use electromyography (EMG), posture evaluation, heart rate, and ratings of perceived exertion and perceptions of pain to find an acceptable backpack load limit for middle school students. Twenty middle school students(More)
BACKGROUND A protocol to allow for human centrifuge exposures up to +12 Gz (12 times gravity) required a screening spinal MRI. MRI-derived spinal disc abnormalities were observed in three of the first four asymptomatic volunteer subjects. The protocol was interrupted and a second study was initiated to determine the possible cause and effect relationship(More)
Acute brain stimulation experiments were carried out in anesthetized male green sunfish, Lepomis cyanellus. Semen discharge was evoked consistently by low level electrical stimulation (100 muA or less) in the following areas: the preoptic region, dorsal hypothalamus, thalamus, midbrain tegmentum and the basolateral midbrain and medulla. Areas which were(More)
Lipovitellin, very low density lipoproteins (VLDL), low density lipoproteins (LDL), high density lipoproteins (HDL), and proteins of d greater than 1.20 were isolated from blood plasma and egg yolks obtained from hens fed a normal diet or one containing 2.5% of crude cottonseed oil. The amounts and compositions of each fraction were determined. Hen blood(More)
A protein fraction which inhibits growth of weanling rats was obtained from Phaseolus vulgaris seeds of the Sanilac variety by extraction with sodium chloride solution and removal of extraneous materials by precipitation at pH 4.0 and absorption on I : I bentonite-Celite. The protein was precipitated by 0.75 saturation with ammonium sulfate. The growth(More)
Several eye movements were evoked by electrical stimulation of the brain in anesthetized sunfish and goldfish. Conjugate lateral rolling movements, similar to eye movements observed when an unoperated fish is rotated about its long axis, were evoked from the acoustico-lateral area of the medulla and the eminentia granularis and an adjacent medial portion of(More)
