Heat and exercise acclimation increases intracellular levels of Hsp72 and inhibits exercise-induced increase in intracellular and plasma Hsp72 in humans
In order to verify the effects of heat and exercise acclimation (HA) on resting and exercise-induced expression of plasma and leukocyte heat shock protein 72 (Hsp72) in humans, nine healthy youngExpand

Possible biphasic sweating response during short-term heat acclimation protocol for tropical natives.
The aim of the present study was to evaluate the sweat loss response during short-term heat acclimation in tropical natives. Six healthy young male subjects, inhabitants of a tropical region, wereExpand

Intracerebroventricular tryptophan increases heating and heat storage rate in exercising rats
The role of increased hypothalamic tryptophan (TRP) availability on thermoregulation and rates of core temperature increase and heat storage (HS) during exercise was studied in normal untrained ratsExpand

Effect of Intracerebroventricular Injection of Atropine on Metabolic Responses during Exercise in Untrained Rats
To investigate the role of the central cholinergic system in the regulation of metabolism during exercise, we injected atropine (5 x 10(-7) mol) into the lateral cerebral ventricle of normal andExpand

Heat storage rate and acute fatigue in rats.
Thermal environmental stress can anticipate acute fatigue during exercise at a fixed intensity (%VO2max). Controversy exists about whether this anticipation is caused by the absolute internalExpand

Intracerebroventricular physostigmine enhances blood pressure and heat loss in running rats.
The aim of this study was to evaluate the effects of the stimulation of central cholinergic synapses in the regulation of heat loss in untrained rats during exercise. The animals were separated intoExpand

Muscarinic cholinoceptors in the ventromedial hypothalamic nucleus facilitate tail heat loss during physical exercise
The aim of this study was to evaluate the participation of ventromedial hypothalamic nucleus (VMH) muscarinic cholinoceptors in heat balance and central fatigue during treadmill exercise (24 mExpand

Six weeks of aerobic training improves VO2max and MLSS but does not improve the time to fatigue at the MLSS
The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of a 6-week aerobic training period on the time to fatigue (tlim) during exercise performed at the maximal lactate steady state (MLSS).Expand

Evidence that tryptophan reduces mechanical efficiency and running performance in rats
It has been reported that exercise increases brain tryptophan (TRP), which is related to exhaustive fatigue. To study this further, the effect of increased TRP availability on the central nervousExpand
