BACKGROUND Ambient particulate matter and nanoparticles have been shown to translocate to the brain, and potentially influence the central nervous system. No data are available whether this may lead to functional changes in the brain. METHODS We exposed 10 human volunteers to dilute diesel exhaust (DE, 300 mug/m3) as a model for ambient PM exposure and(More)
OBJECTIVES To compare 1) maximum manually induced head-protraction, head-tilt and forward head position and 2) the evolution of head-tilt and forward head position during a laptop-task between a headache- and control-group. METHODS Angles for maximum head-protraction, head-tilt and forward head position of 12 female students with postural induced headache(More)
We thank Valberg and colleagues for their critical reflections on our work. The comments mainly focus on the relevance of our original findings to common ambient exposure to diesel exhaust fumes and particulate matter (PM) as well as the mechanism of the observed changes in EEG. In our manuscript [1] we described changes in quantitative EEG activity at(More)
To quantify day-to-day variability in energy expenditure (EE) during weight-training, 10 male subjects completed 6 training sessions that consisted of a warming-up and cooling-down phase (10 min; arm cranking or cycling) and a computer-paced weight-training phase using standard weights (42 min; 10 exercises, 3 x 15 repetitions, work to rest ratio = 1:1).(More)
