    Michael J Chen
    Department of Biological Sciences, California State University, Los Angeles 90032, USA
    J Sports Sci 20:873-99. 2002
    ..These findings suggest that although Borg's RPE scale has been shown to be a valid measure of exercise intensity, its validity may not be as high as previously thought (r = 0.80-0.90), except under certain conditions...

    Michael J Chen
    Department of Biological Sciences, California State University, 5151 State University Drive, Los Angeles, CA 90032, USA
    Life Sci 81:1280-90. 2007
    ..This is the first study of its kind demonstrating the involvement of NE-induced pro-survival signaling in three distinct signaling pathways: PI-3K, MAPK, and NO/cGMP. Possible mechanisms are discussed in light of the results...

    Brain Res Mol Brain Res 135:181-93. 2005
    ..These results suggest that the exercise-induced expression of BDNF is associated with the increased expression of several key intermediates of the PI-3 kinase/Akt pathway, which is known for its role in enhancing neuronal survival...

    Department of Biological Sciences, California State University, 5151 State University Dr, Los Angeles, CA 90032, USA
    Hippocampus 19:962-72. 2009
    ..Increases in BDNF and phospho-Akt were also prevented when mutant mice received a combination of exercise and antidepressant treatment. The results are discussed in the context of what is currently known about BDNF signaling...

    Eur J Pharmacol 633:1-9. 2010
    ..These results indicate that pharmacological intervention can promote neuroprotection and survival signaling in the face of nutrient withdrawal, but that this may require that several pathways remain intact...
