Aim. The purpose of this study was to determine the neuromuscular fatigue profiles during 100 s isometric (ISO), concentric (CON), and eccentric (ECC) activity.Methods. Twelve subjects (age 25.1+/-3.7 years, mass 70.1+/-8.2 kg, mean+/-SD) performed ISO, CON and ECC maximal voluntary contractions and 100 s endurance trials on an isokinetic dynamometer. Raw(More)
Sixty-one patients with acute schizophrenia received either remoxipride (75-375 mg daily) or thioridazine (150-750 mg daily) for 6 weeks. There was no statistically significant between-drug difference in improvement in mental state, as measured by the Brief Psychiatric Rating Scale, although the trend favoured thioridazine; global assessment of illness(More)
Sixty-two DSM III chronic schizophrenic inpatients were selected for a double-blind, placebo controlled, multi-centre, relapse prevention study of remoxipride, a selective dopamine (D2)-receptor antagonist. After a 1 month placebo washout, 23 patients had relapsed and were withdrawn. Of the remaining patients 19 were randomised to remoxipride (150-300 mg(More)
Rats with electrodes implanted in the ventral tegmentum and posterior hypothalamus were trained to press a lever to obtain electrical stimulation through the electrodes. Stimulation in animals with ventral tegmental electrodes led to an increased concentration of homovanillic acid and dihydroxyphenylacetic acid in the forebrain of the animals. Stimulation(More)
OBJECTIVES This study set out to pursue means of reducing mismatch in schoolboy rugby players. The primary objective was to determine whether application of previously reported thresholds of height and grip strength could be used to distinguish those 15-year-old boys appropriate to play under-18 school rugby from their peers. A secondary objective was to(More)
Remoxipride, a novel substituted benzamide, was given for 4 weeks to 18 florid schizophrenics in an open study. The mental state of the majority improved as measured by the Brief Psychiatric Rating Scale. Remoxipride itself did not appear to cause troublesome extrapyramidal effects. There were no significant adverse effects on the cardiovascular system and(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE The effect of temporal lobe transection area, volume of postoperative gliosis, and surgical technique on patients' seizure-free outcome is unknown. The authors studied the effects of these variables on patients' seizure-free outcome. METHODS A retrospective review of magnetic resonance imaging examinations acquired 3 to 18 months(More)
Subsequent of their achieving stable rates of responding for electrical stimulation through electrodes implanted in the region of the brachium conjunctivum, rats were anaesthetized and 6-hydroxydopamine injected through an implanted guide tube into the area of lateral hypothalamus in which the ascending axons of dopamine-containing neurones are found. The(More)
