    Eur J Appl Physiol 92:84-9. 2004
    ..In the rest period after each work session, HRV and blood pressure variables were partly normalized as expected. However, an 8-min period of rest was insufficient to restore blood pressure to resting values...

    Nis Hjortskov
    National Institute of Occupational Health, Dept of Physiology, Lersø Parkallé 105, DK 2100 Copenhagen, Denmark
    J Appl Physiol (1985) 98:1366-70. 2005
    ..We note that the enhanced stretch reflex responses observed in relaxed muscles in the absence of skeletomotor activity support the idea that the sympathetic nervous system can exert a direct influence on the human muscle spindles...
  3. ncbi The effect of delayed-onset muscle soreness on stretch reflexes in human low back muscles
    N Hjortskov
    National Institute of Occupational Health, Department of Physiology, Copenhagen, Denmark
    Scand J Med Sci Sports 15:409-15. 2005
    ..In conclusion, despite changes in DOMS indicators, the reflex system protecting the stability of the lumbar spine is apparently capable of maintaining an appropriate triggering of SLR and LLR...
  4. ncbi Short latency stretch reflex in human lumbar paraspinal muscles
    Jørgen Skotte
    Department of Physiology, National Institute of Occupational Health, Lersø Parkallé 105, DK 2100 Copenhagen, Denmark
    J Neurosci Methods 145:145-50. 2005
    ..5 ms, which is considerably shorter than previously reported. However, it is shown to be consistent with the expected latency value for a monosynaptic stretch reflex for the paraspinal muscles of the low back...

    Anne Helene Garde
    National Institute of Occupational Health, Lersø Parkallé 105, 2100, Copenhagen, Denmark
    Int Arch Occup Environ Health 80:404-11. 2007
    ..The aim of the present study was to investigate whether large scale construction work involving 12-h workdays and extended workweeks leads to insufficient recovery measured as increased catabolic and decreased anabolic metabolism...
