Background The purpose of this study was to compare the effects of supplementation with SizeOn Maximum Performance™ (SOmaxP) versus a comparator product (CP) containing an equal amount of creatine (4g) carbohydrate (39g mal-todextrin) and protein (7g whey protein hydrolysate) on muscular strength, muscular endurance, and body composition during nine weeks(More)
This study used the Peabody Individual Achievement Test (PIAT) to assess reading and spelling skills in a normal control group (n = 100) and in patients having cerebral damage in the left hemisphere (LH; n = 86) or right hemisphere (RH; n = 76). Relative to the normals, both brain-damaged groups were impaired on PIAT Reading Comprehension and Spelling. Only(More)
