Resistance Training With Blood Flow Restriction
Recruiting
Blood flow restriction associated with resistance training is suggested to potentiate increases in muscular strength and hypertrophy. This study will compare the effects of resistance training associated with blood flow restriction with a regular resistance training program. Findings of this project will provide important information regarding a promising intervention to potentiate muscle performance.

Neuromodulation and Fatigue
Recruiting
In this project, we aim to determine any potential effects of a weak electrical current applied to the neck or thoracic area on functional capacity and muscle activation. Healthy individuals will participate in one familiarization followed by three experimental sessions. Fatigability and motor function will be assessed in each test session.

Endothelial Derived Hyperpolarization Factor and Vascular Control
Recruiting
Most cardiometabolic diseases are characterized by increased muscle sympathetic nerve activity (MSNA) during rest and exercise which contributes to poor health outcomes. In healthy humans during muscle contraction, there is a blunting of skeletal muscle vascular responsiveness to increases in MSNA. However, the exact mechanisms involved are unknown although, best evidence suggests that the mechanism is endothelium derived, but nitric oxide (NO) and prostaglandin (PG) independent. Endothelium-der... Read More

Where's the Wif? Referent Selection and Retention
Recruiting
The goal of this work is to address increasing concerns about young children's digital media exposure and language outcomes by testing how the times course of word learning unfolds in digital environments and the cascading impact of digital media on vocabulary outcomes. The findings will have important implications for understanding when and where optimal word learning from media can occur.

Indigenous Supported Agriculture "Go Healthy"
Recruiting
Native Americans (NAs) have limited access to healthy food and a high prevalence of diet-related diseases. This study will implement an agricultural and health education program in which NA residents of Osage Nation will receive a weekly share of healthy fresh produce coupled with healthy recipes and cooking materials. The program's effect on diet and health outcomes and it's cost-effectiveness will be evaluated, and study processes and findings will be broadly disseminated to support tribes in... Read More
