(Z)-II-Tetradecenyl acetate is the reported sex pheromone of European corn borer and redbanded leafroller moths. However, geometrically pure preparations of the compound are weakly attractive to these species. Presence of the E geometrical isomer in the Z is necessary for maximum sex attraction and these moths are "tuned" to respond optimally to specific(More)
In sweep-oar rowers, asymmetrical force production of the legs is a known phenomenon. The purpose of this study was to investigate the muscular activity of the legs that may cause this asymmetry even when oarsmen perform a symmetrical endurance task. Seven male young elite oarsmen performed an all-out 2000-m test on a rowing ergometer. During stroke(More)
Differences in the degree of trapping of initial block by N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptor antagonists may affect their safety and, hence, suitability for clinical trials. In this comparative study, 23 compounds structurally related to the low-affinity, use-dependent NMDA receptor antagonist (S)-alpha-phenyl-2-pyridineethanamine dihydrochloride(More)
Evidence is accumulating that cerebral laterality appears to be an important feature in the regulation of the stress response with the right hemisphere being closely linked to stress-regulatory systems, including the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis. Although some animal and human data support this hypothesis, studies on brain damaged patients yet(More)
Presenting information acoustically has become increasingly interesting for technique training and control in elite sport. In rowing, acoustic feedback is a new and promising application to optimize the boat motion. By taking advantage of auditory perception, which is particularly sensitive to temporal resolution, the physics-based movements are mapped to(More)
The dual task (DT) paradigm has been used to investigate decrements in balance performance while walking and standing in fall prevention studies with older adults. However, there are inconsistent findings whether balance performance decreases or increases in DT situations. Following different theoretical models (e.g. limited resource hypothesis or cross(More)
Monitoring sportive movements is essential for training processes to detect variations as well as progression, stagnations or even regressions. Visualization plays the dominant role in the technique analysis, even though the eyes' ability to perceive information of time-related events are limited and less efficient in comparison to the ears.
