Measurement of pedal loading in bicycling: I. Instrumentation.
Abstract This paper presents a new instrumentation system to precisely measure pedal loads and pedal position. A pedal/dynamometer unit implementing four octagonal strain rings measures all six loadExpand

Measurement of pedal loading in bicycling: II. Analysis and results.
Abstract A computer-based instrumentation system was used to accurately measure the six foot-pedal load components and the absolute pedal position during bicycling. The instrumentation system is theExpand

Susceptibility to the ototoxic properties of toluene is species specific
Toluene is the most widely used industrial solvent. It has been shown to be ototoxic in mice and rats, and to increase permanent threshold shift in conjunction with exposure to noise. Chinchillas areExpand

Deficiency in plasma membrane calcium ATPase isoform 2 increases susceptibility to noise-induced hearing loss in mice
Susceptibility to noise-induced hearing loss (NIHL) is poorly understood at the genetic level. Mice homozygous for a null mutation in the plasma membrane Ca2+-ATPase isoform 2 (PMCA2) gene are deafExpand

Genetic influences in individual susceptibility to noise: a review.
Individual animals and humans show differing susceptibility to noise damage even under very carefully controlled exposure conditions. This difference in susceptibility may be related to unknownExpand

Quantitative measure of genetic differences in susceptibility to noise-induced hearing loss in two strains of mice
The CBA/CaJ (CB) and C57BL/6J (B6) inbred strains of mice were exposed for 1 h to noise intensities between 98 and 119 dB SPL. Previous studies indicated that the B6 mice exhibited permanentExpand

N-Acetyl l-cysteine does not protect against premature age-related hearing loss in C57BL/6J mice: A pilot study
A compound capable of preventing age-related hearing loss would be very useful in an aging population. N-acetyl-L-cysteine (L-NAC) has been shown to be protective against noise exposure, a conditionExpand

N-Acetyl L-Cysteine does not protect mouse ears from the effects of noise*
BackgroundNoise-induced hearing loss (NIHL) is one of the most common occupational injuries in the United States. It would be extremely valuable if a safe, inexpensive compound could be identifiedExpand
