Influence of paroxetine, branched-chain amino acids and tyrosine on neuroendocrine system responses and fatigue in humans.
Effects of a serotonin re-uptake inhibitor and oral amino acid supplementations on physical and mental performance as well as neuroendocrine variables were investigated. 10 male subjects cycled inExpand

Increased slow wave sleep and reduced stage 2 sleep in children depending on exercise intensity.
BACKGROUND There is controversy about the consequences of physical exercise on human sleeping behaviors. Evidence suggests that voluntary physical exercise affects brain structures and functions.Expand

Effects of strength and endurance training on brain-derived neurotrophic factor and insulin-like growth factor 1 in humans.
Blood neurotrophins like insulin-like growth factor (IGF-1) and brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) are discussed to mediate health benefits of physical activity in humans. The aim of the studyExpand

Effects of Physical Exercise on Individual Resting State EEG Alpha Peak Frequency
Previous research has shown that both acute and chronic physical exercises can induce positive effects on brain function and this is associated with improvements in cognitive performance. However,Expand

Experimental observations of the effects of physical exercise on attention, academic and prosocial performance in school settings
German school authorities do not place much emphasis on physical exercise although it is known that concentration improves, and stress and aggression decrease through exercise. We performed threeExpand

Effect of resistance exercise on serum levels of growth factors in humans.
Studies have shown that, depending on intensity, endurance exercise increases neurotrophins and thereby induces neuroplasticity. However, data on the effect of acute resistance exercise at differentExpand
