|Changes in Vascular and Hemodynamic Parameters Following Acute Exercise and Antioxidant Supplementation
||Objective: The objective of this study was to investigate the potential additive effects
of the multi-flavonoid plus fish oil combination and aerobic exercise on post exercise
hypotension (PEH). We hypothesize that the use of a multi-flavonoid plus...
|The effects of aerobic exercise timing on sleep architecture
||It is well known that the quality of sleep has direct effects on the manifestations of disease. Further, exercise has been shown to enhance the quality of sleep, yet little is known regarding how exercise effects sleep stages. Our laboratory has s...
|The Effects of Four Weeks of Aerobic Training on Arterial Stiffness and the Renin-Angiotensin & Aldosterone System on Stage One Hypertensive Obese Individuals
||Increases in blood pressure (BP) are directly related to increases in body mass and obesity related hypertension is associated with pronounced activity of the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system (RAAS) and increased pulse wave velocity (PWV). The p...
|Sex Differences in Cardiac Autonomic Modulation and Baroreflex Sensitivity Following Differential Exercise Training
||Maintained balance between sympathetic and parasympathetic tone within the cardiac autonomic systems is a vital component of cardiovascular regulation. The alteration of baroreflex function can contribute to chronic parasympathetic withdrawal and sub...
|Effects of Aerobic Exercise on Nocturnal Blood Pressure Dipping in Prehypertensive Individuals
||Fifteen prehypertensive individuals completed a 30 minute timed bout of moderate intensity aerobic exercise at 7 AM, 1 PM, and 7 PM. Following each exercise bout, the subject’s were outfitted with an ambulatory blood pressure cuff and their blood pre...
|Changes in Cardiac Autonomic Modulation in Children Following 4 and 8 Weeks of Supervised Summer Activity
||Background: Pediatric obesity is associated with lower physical activity levels and a decrease in cardiac autonomic modulation. Physical activity contributes cardiovascular improvements via increases in heart rate variability. However involvement in ...
|The Effects of a Multi-Flavonoid Supplement on Vascular and Hemodynamic Parameters in Older Pre-Hypertensives
||Antioxidants have been shown to increase vasodilation, increasing vascular distensibility and decreasing blood pressure (BP) in individuals with elevated BP; therefore an additive effect would be expected when combined with exercise. The purpose of t...
|The Effects of a Multi-Flavonoid Supplement on Cardiac Autonomic Regulation
||Antioxidant supplementation has been shown to stimulate positive effects on cardiovascular health including a reduction in blood pressure by alleviating arterial stiffness, but little is known of the benefits of antioxidants on the autonomic nervous ...
|Hemodynamics and Sleep Architecture Following Acute Alcohol Ingestion in College Age Males
||Hypertension is a progressive disease characterized by elevated blood pressures which can cause damage to arteries and increases afterload leading to myocardial remodeling and a progressively worsening cardiovascular function. This increase in afterl...
|Effects of Resistance Exercise Timing on Sleep Architecture
||Short sleep duration and poor sleep quality have been associated with numerous health risks. Prior research has suggested that regular aerobic exercise improves sleep quality; however, less is known regarding how resistance exercise (RE) may affect ...
|Resistance Exercise Timing Effects on Blood Pressure
||Research shows that resistance exercise can lower blood pressure, yet little is known regarding the best time for resistance exercise for the greatest blood pressure benefit; therefore, the purpose of this study is to evaluate the effects of resistan...
|Effects of a History of Concussions on Cognitive Function in Collegiate Wrestlers
||A history of concussions has shown to affect neurocognitive degeneration, but it has not been investigated whether or not these aspects affect baseline cognitive scores. The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects a history of concussion...
|Comparing Water Immersion Skin Wrinkling and Tilt Table Testing in a Young Healthy Population
||Tilt table testing (TTT) is the golden standard in evaluating vasovagal syncope, an autonomic function. Water immersion skin wrinkling (WISW) has recently been linked to autonomic function. The purpose of this study is to compare WISW and TTT in a yo...
|Autonomic Function Responses Comparing Cold Pressor and Tilt Table Testing in a Healthy, Normotensive Population
||The autonomic nervous system regulates unconscious body functions, such as blood pressure, heart rate, respiration, and thermoregulation. Testing for autonomic dysfunction can be dangerous or costly, though it is crucial for individual wellbeing and...
