Quantitative interpretation of bioenergetic data from 31P and 1H magnetic resonance spectroscopic studies of skeletal muscle: an analytical review.
How to estimate the rates of glycogenolytic and aerobic ATP synthesis during exercise and oxidative ATP synthesis and proton efflux during recovery from exercise and how to assess oxidative capacity using data from steady-state exercise, work jumps, or recovery is described.
Resting-state functional connectivity in treatment-resistant depression.
The results suggest that nonrefractory and refractory depression are characterized by distinct functional deficits in distributed brain networks.
Schwann cells, neurotrophic factors, and peripheral nerve regeneration
This review article focuses on the roles in peripheral nerve regeneration of Schwann cells and of the neurotrophin family, CNTF and GDNF, and the relationship between these and what remains to be understood about the possible clinical use of neurotrophic factors.
Is depression a disconnection syndrome? Meta-analysis of diffusion tensor imaging studies in patients with MDD.
Voxel-based analysis of DTI studies of patients with MDD consistently identified decreased fractional anisotropy in the white matter fascicles connecting the prefrontal cortex within cortical (frontal, temporal and occipital lobes) and subcortical areas (amygdala and hippocampus).
Absolute quantification of phosphorus metabolite concentrations in human muscle in vivo by 31P MRS: a quantitative review
31P MRS offers a unique view of muscle metabolism in vivo, but correct quantification of resting metabolite concentrations is important, and some consequences of uncertainty in resting [PCr] are illustrated for analysis of mitochondrial function from PCr kinetics using a published 31P M RS study of exercise and recovery.

It is suggested that HA-PCOS is associated with hepatic steatosis, independent of obesity and insulin resistance, in women with polycystic ovary syndrome.
Physical training improves skeletal muscle metabolism in patients with chronic heart failure.
Effect of prehabilitation on objectively measured physical fitness after neoadjuvant treatment in preoperative rectal cancer patients: a blinded interventional pilot study.
The effects of NACRT and a 6 week structured responsive exercise training programme (SRETP) on oxygen uptake at lactate threshold in patients requiring surgery for locally advanced rectal cancer is investigated.
Dissociation between exercise-induced reduction in liver fat and changes in hepatic and peripheral glucose homoeostasis in obese patients with non-alcoholic fatty liver disease.
Although supervised exercise effectively reduced liver fat, improving peripheral IR in NAFLD, the reduction in liver fat was insufficient to improve hepatic IR.

Activation imbalance among forearm muscles (reduced extensor carpi radialis activity) in tennis elbow, probably due to protective pain‐related inhibition, could lead to a widespread upper limb muscle imbalance.
