  • Interaction among skeletal muscle metabolic energy systems during intense exercise 

    Baker, Julien S.; McCormick, Marie Clare; Robergs, Robert A. (Hindawi Publishing Corporation, 2010)
    High-intensity exercise can result in up to a 1,000-fold increase in the rate of ATP demand compared to that at rest (Newsholme et al., 1983). To sustain muscle contraction, ATP needs to be regenerated at a rate complementary ...
  • The interaction between clothing and air weapon pellets 

    Wightman, Graham; Wark, K.; Thomson, J. (Elsevier, 2014-11-03)
    Comparatively few studies have been carried out on air weapon injuries yet there are significant number of injuries and fatalities caused by these low power weapons because of their availability and the public perception ...
  • Interaction between disinhibition and restraint: implications for body weight and eating disturbance
