Relative differences in strength and power from slow to fast isokinetic velocities may reflect dynapenia

, : Relative differences in strength and power from slow to fast isokinetic velocities may reflect dynapenia. Muscle & Nerve 52(1): 120-130

We compared absolute and normalized values for peak torque (PT), mean power (MP), rate of velocity development, and electromyography (EMG) amplitude during maximal isometric and concentric isokinetic leg extension muscle actions, as well as the %decrease in PT and %increase in MP from 1.05 to 3.14 rad·s(-1) in younger versus older men. Measurements were performed twice for reliability. Isokinetic measurements were normalized to the isometric muscle actions. Absolute isometric PT, isokinetic PT and MP, and EMG amplitudes at 1.05 and 3.14 rad·s(-1) were greater in the younger men, although normalizing to isometric PT eliminated the age differences. The older men exhibited greater %decrease in PT (37.2% vs. 31.3%) and lower %increase in MP (87.6% vs. 126.4%) regardless of normalization. Normalization eliminated absolute differences in isokinetic strength and power, but the relative differences from slow to fast velocities may reflect dynapenia characterized by age-related decreases in fast-twitch fiber function.

Motor cortical output is suppressed by two cortical inhibitory systems, short interval intracortical inhibition (SICI) and long interval intracortical inhibition (LICI). SICI is decreased in the presence of LICI. However, there is a long-standing...

The plasma membrane GABA transporter GAT1 is thought to mediate uptake of synaptically released GABA. In the primate dorsolateral prefrontal cortex (DLPFC), GAT1 expression changes significantly during development and in schizophrenia. The consequ...

We report the cloning and characterization of a novel NMDA receptor subunit cDNA, which encodes a predicted polypeptide of 1003 amino acids. Phylogenic analysis indicates that this new subunit is most closely related to NR3A. Therefore, we term it...
