This study was designed to examine the modulation of executive functions during acute exercise and to determine whether exercise intensity moderates this relationship. Eighty college-aged adults were recruited and randomly assigned into one of the four following groups: control, 30%, 50%, and 80% heart rate reserve. The Wisconsin Card Sorting Test (WCST)(More)
The effects of chronic pretreatment with ephedrine and phenylpropanolamine (PPA) on the antinociceptive activities of morphine and codeine, as well as their effects on the induction and expression of tolerance to, and dependence on morphine and codeine in mice are reported. Chronic pretreatment with ephedrine or PPA attenuated the antinociceptive effects of(More)
Creatine plays an important role in muscle energy metabolism. Postactivation potentiation (PAP) is a phenomenon that can acutely increase muscle power, but it is an individualized process that is influenced by muscle fatigue. This study examined the effects of creatine supplementation on explosive performance and the optimal individual PAP time during a set(More)
INTRODUCTION A recent US Major League Baseball (MLB) rule change requires baseball pitchers to deliver pitches within 12 s. PURPOSES To examine the effect of three between-pitch rest intervals on throwing performance during a simulated seven-inning game and muscle damage during postgame recovery. DESIGN A randomized counterbalanced study. METHODS(More)
Ephedrine and phenylpropanolamine (PPA) (10 mg/kg) pretreatment intraperitoneally (IP) potentiated the antinociceptive effects of subcutaneous (SC) morphine (5 mg/kg) and codeine (60 mg/kg) in mice using the tail-flick method. Prior administration of propranolol (6 mg/kg, SC) 10 min before the sympathomimetics had no effect on this action. Phentolamine (2(More)
The effects of ephedrine and phenylpropanolamine on the antinociceptive activities of morphine and codeine were investigated. Both morphine and codeine exhibited dose-dependent antinociceptive activities in the tail flick test. Ephedrine (5, 10 and 20 mg/kg) and phenylpropanolamine (5, 10 and 20 mg/kg) showed no antinociceptive effect when administered(More)
