The heart rate in a fish is a combination of the intrinsic heart rate and the extrinsic modulations that act on it, such as excitatory adrenergic stimulations and inhibitory cholinergic stimulations (Nilsson, 1983). With the hypothesis that intrinsic heart rate might be the limiting factor, many have attempted to study the intrinsic cardiac functioning to further the understanding of the mechanical properties…

In this study we wanted to see how different individuals respond to exercise, specifically how long they can work and how efficiently they work. We predicted that females who exercise will have a higher relative-VO2, higher…

If this is repeated regularly, then over time the heart will become stronger as will become more used to the higher demands. At the start of exercise, the…

Some children are born with a single ventricle defect, which means that they only have one ventricle working. There are three types of medical deficiencies attributed to a single ventricle defect: Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome (HLHS), Pulmonary Atresia/Intact…
