Exercising Women Needed for Research Study

Tuesday, September 30, 2014

Women are being sought for a research study to evaluate the effects of mild dehydration and heat stress on cognitive and thermoregulatory responses in females of varying body sizes.

Seeking: 30 females; 18-35 years old; no chronic illness or injury, not taking any medications altering fluid balance, non-smokers, and those with a regular menstrual cycle (oral contraceptives are allowed).

You will receive:  A free bone density scan and report of body composition (i.e. DEXA). You will be entered into a $100 raffle. 

This study will involve: Three visits to the Human Performance Laboratory (approximately 10 hours total; 1 hour familiarization and two trials lasting about 4 hours); both trials involve passive exposure to the heat for approximately 1.5 hours where measurements of heart rate, blood pressure, sweating, and skin blood flow will be taken. Cognitive testing will also occur before and after tests. Blood draws will also occur during testing.

For details, telephone Nicole Moyen or Jenna Burchfield at 408-623-8114 or email at nemoyen@uark.edu or jburchi@email.uark.edu.

The principal investigator is Matthew Ganio. This study has been approved by the University of Arkansas, Institutional Review Board for Human Studies.
