We measured leg blood flow (LBF), drew arterial-venous (A-V) blood samples, and calculated muscle O(2) consumption (VO(2)) during incremental cycle ergometry exercise [15, 30, and 99 W and maximal effort (maximal work rate, WR(max))] in nine sedentary young (20 +/- 1 yr) and nine sedentary old (70 +/- 2 yr) males. LBF was preserved in the old subjects at 15(More)
To determine the effect of age on quadriceps muscle blood flow (QMBF), leg vascular resistance (LVR), and maximum oxygen uptake (QVO2 max), a thermal dilution technique was used in conjunction with arterial and venous femoral blood sampling in six sedentary young (19.8 +/- 1.3 yr) and six sedentary old (66.5 +/- 2.1 yr) males during incremental knee(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Serotonin is a major regulator of structural brain plasticity, which may occur following cortical resection in humans. In this study we used positron emission tomography (PET) with alpha[11C]methyl-l-tryptophan (AMT) to evaluate serotonergic alterations in subcortical structures following cortical resection in children with(More)
