Body size, physique, body composition and physiological performance of elite athletes are independent aspects, have aroused the interest of exercise scientists, but studies that combine these aspects in elite athletes are scarcely available. The aim of the present study was to describe the selected anthropometric and exercise physiological characteristics(More)
Public health analyses suggest that, in spite of the possibility that pertussis vaccine may cause rare cases of neurological injury, catastrophic risks to individual children are lower if they are vaccinated. A number of parents, however, choose not to vaccinate their children. The purpose of this study was to investigate the decision processes of some(More)
BACKGROUND Several laboratory studies have suggested that many people favor potentially harmful omissions over less harmful acts. The authors studied the role of this omission bias in parents' decisions whether to vaccinate their children against pertussis. METHODS Two hundred mail surveys were sent to subscribers to a magazine that had published articles(More)
The prevalence of juvenile excess weight keeps growing in the more developed world (WHO, 1998). The aim of the study was to compare the prevalence of overweight and obesity in Hungarian schoolboys in 1980 and 2005.Two independent representative data collections were performed in volunteer boys aged between 6.51 and 18.50 years in the same 90 settlements of(More)
The lesions of medial habenular nuclei increased the pain sensitivity, enhanced the analgesic activity of morphine and slightly activated the behavior. The lesion of fasciculus retroflexus, a pathway connecting habenular nuclei with interpeduncular nucleus enhanced the pain sensitivity less markedly, did not change the efficacy of morphine analgesia, but(More)
The pathogenesis of arrhythmogenic transient depolarizations (TDs) was studied by means of electrophysiological and cytochemical methods in normal and hypertrophied left ventricular myocardium of the rat. In hypertrophy induced by administration of 5 mg/kg isoprenaline once daily for 7 days, the myocardial membrane was depolarized, the action potential(More)
Dantrolene sodium (3 X 10(-4) M) exerted a biphasic effect on the mechanical and electrical activity of the isolated guinea pig left atrium. In the first phase, the drug increased the contractile force by about 200%, and prolonged the action potential duration. This transient positive inotropic effect was antagonized by D-600, a slow Ca2+ channel inhibitor.(More)
