We have previously demonstrated that women did not increase intramuscular glycogen in response to an increased percent of dietary carbohydrate (CHO) (from 60 to 75% of energy intake) (M. A. Tarnopolsky, S. A. Atkinson, S. M. Phillips, and J. D. MacDougall. J. Appl. Physiol. 78: 1360-1368, 1995). CHO and CHO-protein (Pro) supplementation postexercise can(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the neuromuscular and performance effects of acute and long-term exposure to selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs). DESIGN Two randomized, double-blind, crossover studies. SETTING Departments of Kinesiology and Medicine, McMaster University, Hamilton, Ont, Canada. PARTICIPANTS Eleven healthy, college-aged men in the(More)
The simultaneous measurement of structural and chemical information at the atomic scale provides fundamental insights into the connection between form and function in materials science and nanotechnology. We demonstrate structural and chemical mapping in Bi(0.5) Sr(0.5) MnO3 using an aberration-corrected scanning transmission electron microscope.(More)
Electron energy-loss spectroscopy (EELS) in the transmission electron microscope (TEM) is used to obtain high-resolution information on the composition and the type of chemical bonding of materials. Spectrum imaging, where a full EEL spectrum is acquired and stored at each pixel in the image, gives an exact correlation of spatial and spectral features.(More)
The purpose of this investigation was to determine the influence of post-exercise macronutrient intake on weight loss, protein metabolism, and endurance exercise performance during a period of increased training volume. Ten healthy young female endurance athletes performed 4 60-min bouts of cycle ergometry at approximately 65% of VO2peak on 4 days (day 1,(More)
In the electron microscope, spectroscopic signals such as the characteristic X-rays or the energy loss of the incident beam can provide an analysis of the local composition or electronic structure. Recent improvements in the energy resolution and sensitivity of electron spectrometers have improved the quality of spectra that can be obtained. Concurrently,(More)

The MAC detector at PEP recorded data for an integrated luminosity of 335 pb-’ between 1980 and 1986. The design of this low-cost MAgnetic Calorimeter was optimized for electron and muon identification, as well as for the measurement of hadronic energy flow. Muon identification is available over 96% of the solid angle, and MAC was the first detector to make(More)

We describe the design considerations, contruction techniques, prototype tests and performance after installation, of a pressurized drift chamber constructed for use with the MAC detector at PEP. The chamber consists of 324 aluminized mylar tubes of 7 mm diameter with wall thickness of 100pm. With appropriate shielding it operates successfully at 3.6 cm(More)
Boron carbide B4C powders were subject to reactive spark plasma sintering (also known as field assisted sintering, pulsed current sintering or plasma assisted sintering) under nitrogen atmosphere. For an optimum hexagonal BN (h-BN) content estimated from X-ray diffraction measurements at approximately 0.4 wt%, the as-prepared BaCb-(BxOy/BN) ceramic shows(More)
