Background Opiate dependence (e.g., morphine) is one of the most important problems affecting human health. Morphine reduces the irritability of neurons in the pain pathway by attaching to some such opioid receptors such as μ receptor (MOR). Exercise can improve destructions due to opiate dependence in many of the body organs including nerve systems. Thus, the aim of this study was to investigate the effect of endurance exercise training (8 weeks of moderate exercise) and methadone on μ-opioid r...

Purpose Obesity is a multifactorial disease and it is related to the occurrence of metabolic syndrome and nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFDL) in youth. This study aimed to investigate the effects of a 12-week multicomponent intervention program in markers of metabolic syndrome and NAFLD in Brazilian overweight/obese low-income school-aged children.
The objective of this study was to find the optimal age in dividing the group in Taiwan. It used the 9660 health-related fitness data, in ages ranging from 25 to 49 years, including nine measurement indexes using systolic pressure, diastolic pressure, static heart rate, body height, body weight, 30-s sit-ups, 60-s sit-ups, sitting trunk flexion (sit and reach), and 3-min step test. This study was to find out the optimal age group by utilizing hierarchical clustering analysis and one-way ANOVA. T...

While elite long-distance runners experience hypoalgesia and sometimes runner’s high after running, these phenomena are rarely explored in non-elite runners. Therefore, we examined the effect of a 2-h-run on mood and pain processing in 15 non-elite male runners using repeated painful and nonpainful pinprick stimulation and functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI). Pain ratings, pressure pain stimulus responses, and euphoria ratings were assessed immediately after a 2-h-run and at a run-free ...

Purpose Despite their widespread use in exercise physiology, time-to-exhaustion (TTE) tests present an often-overlooked challenge to researchers, which is how to computationally deal with between- and within-subject differences in exercise duration. We aimed to verify the best analysis method to overcome this problem.

Alpha-actinin-3 (ACTN3) gene is one of the most extensively investigated genes associated with human physical performance. The ACTN3 gene via ACTN3 R/X gene polymorphism codes the ACTN3 protein proteins that are localized at the boundaries of sarcomeres in the contractile apparatus of muscle Z disk. The ACTN3 R allele codes for functioning ACTN3 gene that results in the production of ACTN3 protein, while incomplete sequence in the ACTN3 X allele, preventing the production of that protein. Given ...

Parkinson’s disease (PD) is a neurodegenerative disease characterized by a progressive degeneration of dopaminergic neurons in the substantia nigra pars compact (SNpc). Previous studies have shown that cognitive deficits and motor impairment symptoms seen in PD and that physical exercise may exert beneficial effects on PD. In most cases, brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) is involved in such effects. However, little is known on the role of BDNF in exercise, especially high-intensity interv...
