Study of the Effects of Temperature on Metabolism in Human Muscle
This study will examine the role of temperature in changing energy metabolism in human muscle. In order to do this, researchers will use magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to provide information about how parts of muscle operate during exercise.
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a diagnostic tool that creates high quality images of the human body without the use of X-ray (radiation). In this study, MRI will be used to measure the temperature and energy level of specific muscles during rest and exercise. In addition, the muscles being tested will be heated and cooled to see if temperature directly affects levels of energy in muscle.
