    Abstract: Although a significant number of studies have been devoted to the investigation of the electrographic correlates and neurophysiological mechanisms of voluntary movement and motor imagery-related brain activity, there is a question on which EEG characteristics reflect its content. Considering that motor imagery is a complex cognitive process which r... Show More

    Abstract: Public health promotion and recommendation of physical exercise by agencies and organizations have not favourably considered isometric exercise in contrast with dynamic exercise. This reluctance has been premised on the fear that isometric exercise could be hazardous due to the striking acute increase in the blood pressure. Therefore, this study ex... Show More

    Abstract: Fasting is abstaining from food and/or drinking water for a while, observed majorly for medical or spiritual purposes. The effect of varied fasting durations on intestinal glucose uptake was investigated in this study. Forty male Wistar rats, weighing between 100 and 120 g were used. They were randomly assigned into four groups (n=10 per group), Gr... Show More
