  1. doi request reprint Exercise promotes positive impression formation towards both men and women
    Robin B Kanarek
    Department of Psychology, Tufts University, 490 Boston Avenue, Medford, MA 02155, USA
    Appetite 58:786-9. 2012
    ..Exercise level also positively influenced ratings of characteristics not related to exercise. These data show that even minimal information about exercise is an important component of first impressions in both men and women...
  2. doi request reprint Artificial food dyes and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder
    Robin B Kanarek
    Department of Psychology, Tufts University, Medford, Massachusetts, USA
    Nutr Rev 69:385-91. 2011
    ..While these strictures could have positive effects on behavior, the removal of food dyes is not a panacea for ADHD, which is a multifaceted disorder with both biological and environmental underpinnings...
  3. pmc Running and addiction: precipitated withdrawal in a rat model of activity-based anorexia
    Robin B Kanarek
    Department of Psychology, Tufts University, 490 Boston Avenue, Medford, MA 02155, USA
    Behav Neurosci 123:905-12. 2009
    ..Only minimal withdrawal symptoms were observed in inactive rats. These findings support the hypothesis that exercise-induced increases in endogenous opioid peptides act in a manner similar to chronic administration of opiate drugs...
  4. ncbi request reprint Diet selection improves morphine's antinociceptive actions in rats with streptozotocin-induced diabetes
    Monica Leibovici
    Department of Psychology, Tufts University, Medford, MA 02155, USA
    Behav Neurosci 121:965-75. 2007
    ..These results indicate that diet can contribute to the severity of diabetes and could be used as an adjunct to standard treatment of the disease...

    R Todd Coy
    Department of Psychology, Tufts University, Medford, MA 02155, USA
    Nutr Neurosci 9:131-9. 2006
    ..beta-FNA was less effective in blocking the antinociceptive actions of morphine in sucrose-fed female rats than in females fed only chow. In contrast, diet had minimal effects on responses to beta-FNA in male rats...

    Department of Psychology, Tufts University, 490 Boston Avenue, Medford, MA 02155, USA
    Pharmacol Biochem Behav 85:762-8. 2006
    ..However, exercise does attenuate nicotine-induced antinociception. Therefore, the effect of persistent exercise on analgesic drugs is not specific to opiates...

    Patricia J Allen
    Department of Psychology, Tufts University, Medford, MA, USA
    Neuropsychopharmacology 35:534-46. 2010
