Age-related differences in pre-movement antagonist muscle co-activation and reaction-time performance
Multiple causes contribute to the prolonged reaction-times (RT) observed in elderly persons. The involvement of antagonist muscle co-activation remains unclear. Here the Mm. Biceps and TricepsExpand

Improved cognitive functioning in obese adolescents after a 30-week inpatient weight loss program
IntroductionStudies linked obesity with a large number of medical conditions including decreased cognitive functioning. The relation between BMI and cognition was proven in adults, but in adolescentsExpand

Self-perceived fatigue in adolescents in relation to body composition and physical outcomes
BackgroundIncreased self-perceived fatigue (SpF) has already been identified in chronic conditions such as obesity, but it is also a growing problem in school-attending adolescents (±25%). This studyExpand

Predicting appendicular lean and fat mass with bioelectrical impedance analysis in older adults with physical function decline - The PROVIDE study.
BACKGROUND & AIMS No generalizable formulas exist that are derived from bioelectrical impedance analysis (BIA) for predicting appendicular lean mass (ALM) and fat mass (AFM) in sarcopenic olderExpand

Peripheral muscle fatigue in hospitalised geriatric patients is associated with circulating markers of inflammation
Abstract Geriatric patients with acute infection show increased muscle weakness and fatigability but the relative contribution of central and peripheral factors is unclear. Hospitalised patients withExpand

Age-related differences in muscle recruitment and reaction-time performance
Previously, we showed that prolonged reaction-time (RT) in older persons is related to increased antagonist muscle co-activation, occurring already before movement onset. Here, we studied whether aExpand

Reaction time in healthy elderly is associated with chronic low-grade inflammation and advanced glycation end product
ABSTRACT Chronic inflammation and Advanced Glycation End products (AGE) are associated with sarcopenia. Decreased voluntary muscle activation and increased antagonist coactivation can contribute toExpand
