    Glycogen serves as an important energy reservoir in the human body. Despite the abundance of glycogen in the liver and skeletal muscles, its concentration in the brain is relatively low, hence its significance has been questioned. A major challenge in studying brain glycogen metabolism has been...

    Little is known concerning the contributions of oxidative phosphorylation (OxPhos), anaerobic glycolytic rate (AnGly), maximum creatine kinase (CK) activity, and metabolic economy (ME) on fatigue resistance. The purpose of this study was to model fatigue using muscle tissue metabolic measures...

    Abstract Based on the study of three unrelated families, we report what we believe to be the first in vivo evidence of muscle ATPase deficiency in individuals carrying the neurogenic weakness, ataxia and retinitis pigmentosa (NARP) syndrome mtDNA mutation (T8993G). Since plasma citrulline was...

    31phosphorous-magnetic resonance spectroscopy (31P-MRS) has become an extremely valuable technique to investigate changes in muscle metabolism noninvasively and in vivo. The purpose of this article is to critically review how 31P-MRS has contributed to current understanding of muscle metabolic...

    Proton magnetic resonance spectroscopy (1H-MRS) allows in vivo assessment of the metabolism related to human brain functions. Visual, auditory, tactile, and motor stimuli induce a temporary increase in the brain lactate level, which may act as a rapid source of energy for the activated neurons....

    Although skeletal muscle work efficiency probably plays a key role in limiting mobility of the elderly, the physiological mechanisms responsible for this diminished function remain incompletely understood. Thus, in the quadriceps of young (n = 9) and old (n = 10) subjects, we measured the cost...
