Depletion of muscle glycogen is considered a limiting performance factor during prolonged exercise, whereas the role of the intramyocellular lipid (IMCL) pool is not yet fully understood. We examined 1) intramyocellular glycogen and lipid utilization during prolonged exercise, 2) resynthesis of muscle glycogen and lipids during recovery, and 3) changes in(More)
Earlier studies have shown that the negatively allometric brain-body weight association in mature mammals changes to an isometric association when body weights are adjusted for their rates of oxygen consumption. Birds are endogenous homeotherms, and so their brain weights were analyzed according to their body weights and metabolism (estimated energy(More)
Disenchantment with the limitations, and in some cases the morbidity, of currently used radiologic techniques for the demonstration or exclusion of small acoustic neuromas prompted development of an examination using small amounts of intrathecal air and computed tomography (CT). A prospective study was designed to evaluate air CT(More)
The study examined the implication of the renin-angiotensin system (RAS) in regulation of splanchnic blood flow and glucose production in exercising humans. Subjects cycled for 40 min at 50% maximal O(2) consumption (VO(2 max)) followed by 30 min at 70% VO(2 max) either with [angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) blockade] or without (control) administration(More)
CT and MRI are the primary imaging modalities used to evaluate the various regions of the head and neck. From the preceding discussion one can see clearly that the choice of the appropriate imaging modality depends on a number of variables. There is no indisputable "winner" under all anatomical or pathological circumstances. The advantages and disadvantages(More)
Anatomical relationships of temporal bone structures are demonstrated by thin section edge detection computed tomography. Many otic structures are best appreciated in axial view, but reorientation to anatomy as seen in this plane is needed for optimal diagnosis. A level by level review of key structure is presented toward this end. The limitations and(More)
