Dopamine and Muscle Function in the Heat

Dopamine and Muscle Function in the Heat

our goal is to study the effects of dopamine activity, using Ritalin ingestion, on neuromuscular function over the course of a progressive heating and cooling protocol developed in our lab. We hypothesize that Ritalin will minimize the previously reported progressive impairment in neuromuscular function with hyperthermia compared to placebo, suggesting that dopamine activity preserves neuromuscular capacity with hyperthermia.
