H1 but not H2 histamine antagonist receptors mediate anxiety-related behaviors and emotional memory deficit in mice subjected to elevated plus-maze testing
(Brazilian Journal of Medical and Biological Research, 2013-05-01) [Artigo]
This study investigated the role of H1 and H2 receptors in anxiety and the retrieval of emotional memory using a Trial 1/Trial 2 (T1/T2) protocol in an elevated plus-maze (EPM). Tests were performed on 2 consecutive days, ...
Antagonist coactivation of trunk stabilizer muscles during Pilates exercises
(Journal of Bodywork and Movement Therapies, 2013-05-15) [Artigo]
The purpose of this study was to compare the antagonist coactivation of the local and global trunk muscles during mat-based exercises of Skilled Modern Pilates. Twelve women performed five exercises and concurrently, surface ...
Exercise reduces angiotensin II responses in rat femoral veins
(Peptides, 2013) [Artigo]
The control of blood flow during exercise involves different mechanisms, one of which is the activation of the renin-angiotensin system, which contributes to exercise-induced blood flow redistribution. Moreover, although ...
Risk factors that may signify a propensity to the use of drugs in students at a public university
(Revista Brasileira de Crescimento e Desenvolvimento Humano, 2013) [Artigo]
Introduction: We sought to evaluate the risk factors that may increase the propensity to use licit and illicit drugs among students at a public university. Methods: The project involved students (n = 268) enrolled in the ...
Effect of 808 nm low-level laser therapy in exercise-induced skeletal muscle fatigue in elderly women
(Lasers in Medical Science, 2013-09-01) [Artigo]
Aging process involves several structural changes in muscle tissue which lead to decrease in musculoskeletal function. One of the most common physiological modifications is the increase in fatigability in elderly people, ...
