Exploring Relationship Between Face-to-Face Interaction and Team Performance Using Wearable Sensor Badges

The work environment is built to support work performance. This performance is the key focus of managers in the work place. Human dynamics have been measured in various environments like the medical field, schools, and various social communities to assess performance. (more…)

Brain games

There’s no doubt that the brain is highly involved in our learning process, motor skills, perception, attitudes, and overall results when discussing physical activity and exercise. The electrical activity that the brain conducts is run along the myelin connections of our neocortex. These myelin connections, which are formed by a chemical called myelin, shape largely the way we view and interact with the world. In fact, they are the catalyst behind the theory of cognitive behavioral therapy. The thoughts and actions that we stimulate become reinforced, and the more reinforcement they are given, the deeper the grooves and the more potential energy they are given. (more…)

Physical Activity & Improved Lipoprotein Profiles

Kraus NEJM 2002 (1)

A link between physical activity and a reduced risk of cardiovascular disease exists. Whether the improvement is due to positive changes in lipoprotein profiles is undetermined. Using a prospective, randomized study design, researchers investigated the effects of the intensity and amount of exercise on lipoprotein profiles. The researchers gathered that the amount of exercise was the critical factor associated with improved lipoprotein profiles. (more…)

Weight Regain Critique

Weiss et al. (2007) – weight regain

The skills necessary to prevent the backslide of weight regain are elusive and hard to pinpoint. Patients treated by lifestyle modifications generally regain 30% to 35% of their lost weight in the year after treatment and will regain the majority, if not all of the weight lost, within five years. Weight regain has been associated with fast food consumption, higher television viewing, and lower levels of physical activity. The objectives of this study were to determine the prevalence and predictors of weight regain in adults in the United States who had experienced substantial weight loss. (more…)

Lifetime Physical Activity & Breast Cancer Risk

Friedenreich et al. (2001)

Associations between physical-activity and breast cancer has been reported before. Previous studies didn’t examine the risk of breast cancer for all types of physical activity (occupational, household, and recreational) for entire lifetimes, assessing all parameters of physical activity. The purpose of this study was to address the unanswered questions regarding the type and dose of activity and the time periods in life when physical activity may be specifically associated with breast cancer risk.

Adolescent Intervention Articles



These articles focused on interventions aimed at adolescents. Both interventions measured predictors of physical activity fidelity. The study by Corder et al. focused on the desires of adolescents to increase physical activity. The study by Hall et al. measured process evaluation from the HEALTHY physical education intervention. Both studies paid attention to the barriers, fidelity to intervention, implementer’s participation, interventionist interviews, and class observations. (more…)
