    School of Health Sciences, University of South Australia, Adelaide, Australia
    Stroke 44:2519-24. 2013
    ..Regular physical activity (PA) is an important recommendation for stroke prevention. We compared the associations of self-reported PA with incident stroke in the Reasons for Geographic and Racial Differences in Stroke (REGARDS) study...

    ..g. sitting ICC = 0.504, lying = 0.081). These results suggest that assessment of CVR using TCD should be performed with participants sitting in order to maximise CVR measurement reliability...

    Research Centre for Human Movement Control, The University of Adelaide, Adelaide, Australia
    Exp Brain Res 180:181-6. 2007

    Michelle N McDonnell
    Research Centre for Human Movement Control, The University of Adelaide, Adelaide, Australia
    Exp Brain Res 173:86-93. 2006
    ..The increase in LICI is likely to be a result of increased GABA(B) receptor mediated inhibitory post-synaptic potentials, while the reduction in SICI may relate to the activation of pre-synaptic GABA(B) receptors reducing GABA release...
