  • hypothesis

  • The present study used synchrotron radiation micro-angiography (SRMA) to examine the hypothesis that this feeling is derived from a sex difference in the vascular response to coldness. (go.jp)
  • To examine the hypothesis that this apparent abnormality in left ventricular function represents a physiologic difference between men and women, we prospectively studied central and peripheral cardiovascular responses to exercise in 31 age-matched healthy volunteers (16 women and 15 men).

  • efficiency
  • the latency and the amplitude of this peak were associated with the speed of the decision process and the efficiency of the stimulus-response mapping, respectively. (frontiersin.org)
  • This suggests that individual differences in feeding activity and stress response explain part of the differences in feed efficiency by explaining variance in maintenance energy expenditure. (wur.nl)
  • Exercise
  • Sex-related differences in the normal cardiac response to upright exercise. (ahajournals.org)
  • A combination of quantitative radionuclide angiography and expired-gas analysis was used to measure ejection fraction and relative changes in end-diastolic counts, stroke counts, count output, and arteriovenous oxygen difference during symptom-limited upright bicycle exercise. (ahajournals.org)
  • these differences must be taken into account when measurements of cardiac function during exercise stress are used for diagnostic purposes. (ahajournals.org)
  • study
  • This study clarifies seasonal differences in effects on the human body by comparing the effects on the thermal sensations of the human body from outdoor thermal environments in the winter and the dry season of Bangkok, Thailand in the tropics. (scirp.org)
  • The present study examines corporate responses to unsolicited letters from adults and children expressing either praise or complaint regarding a company product. (acrwebsite.org)
  • respectively
  • After furosemide (0 to 1 hour), K and Ca excretion rates increased, but the proportionate ethnic difference decreased from 44% to 22% and from 22% to 10%, respectively, consistent with blacks having more basal Na,K,2Cl cotransporter activity to inhibit. (ahajournals.org)
  • consistent
  • Overall, data are consistent with the view that speed and accuracy are processed by two interacting but separate neurocognitive systems, with different features in both the anticipation and the response execution phases. (frontiersin.org)
  • found
  • Furthermore, reduced IFNAR levels did not account for differences we found in the basal levels of several other innate signaling proteins in the wild-type newborn and the adult, including protein kinase R (PKR), that suggested specific regulation of innate immunity in the developing brain. (luriechildrens.org)
