The prevalence of low back pain (LBP) increases with age, yet the underlying mechanism(s) responsible for this remains unclear. To explore the role of biomechanical factors, we investigated age-related differences in lower-back biomechanics during sagittally-symmetric simulated manual material handling tasks. For each task, trunk kinematics and mechanical(More)
Two experiments investigated discrimination learning with preweanling rats (Rattus norvegicus) following different experimental deprivation treatments. In Experiment 1, 10- to 11-day-old Sprague-Dawley rats were deprived for 24 h of either nutrients and maternal contact through placement in an incubator or only nutrients by placement in the nest of a(More)
