AIMS/INTRODUCTION The aim of the present study was to determine the effect of moderate aerobic exercise on cardiac autonomic function in type 2 diabetic patients. MATERIALS AND METHODS Heart rate variability of 20 patients with type 2 diabetes was assessed. Resting electrocardiogram for the heart rate variability analysis at spontaneous respiration was(More)
BACKGROUND Stroop test is one of the widely used tests in cognitive psychology. It is used both in healthy population and also in patients to assess the selective attention. The selective attention as assessed by it is also found to be altered in bilinguals. In Nepal, most of the students are bilingual since most of the courses are in English language.(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to compare cardiovascular autonomic function tests (AFT) and vibration perception threshold (VPT) of patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) with controls. RESEARCH DESIGN/METHODS The study was conducted on 60 diabetic patients comparing with 30 controls. The cardiovascular AFT and VPT were assessed in both(More)
Upadhayay, et al.: Relationship of HRV and cortisol with academic stress 74 Asian Journal of Medical Sciences | Oct-Dec 2014 | Vol 5 | Issue 4 MATERIALS AND METHODS Eighty-five medical (MBBS) students of aged between 18 and 28 years participated in this prospective study. The variables assessed were anthropometric (age and BMI), cardio-respiratory(More)
Background: Heart rate response to 3-minutes step is a very simple and convenient tool for assessing the cardiovascular fitness. However, the exact mechanism of autonomic adjustment during the maximal heart rate and exponential decay of accelerated heart beat during recovery after submaximal exercise is less understood. Objectives: To study the mechanism of(More)
Background: The brain electrical activity can vary according to the types of tasks, quality of individuals (brilliant or dull) and state (resting/exercise) of the body. Objectives: To compare the effect of educational course on electroencephalogram (EEG) between the high and the low cognitive medical students. Methods: Eighty three students were enrolled in(More)
BACKGROUND The study was aimed to assess somatic neural alterations in lower limbs of elite Nepalese football players by comparing their nerve conduction parameters with non-athletic controls. METHODS Players (N.=27, age 22.74±2.52 yrs.) with excellent cardio-respiratory fitness and presenting no signs of injuries, and sedentary controls (N.=29, age(More)
BACKGROUND Reports on alterations in somatic neural functions due to non-diabetic obesity, a major risk factor for diabetes, are few and still a matter of debate. Nevertheless, to our knowledge, reports lack any comments on the type of somatic nerve fibers affected in non-diabetic obesity. Therefore, this study aimed to find out the alteration in somatic(More)
