The metabolic cost
of a structure like the brain is mainly dependent on how big it is, and many animals have bigger brain-to-body mass ratios than humans.
If you can cut the metabolic cost
to that performance by 25 percent, it's a dramatic increase in capability.
Additionally, Lucas (1985) observed that the metabolic cost
associated with the construction of traps increased positively with the size of the trap and negatively with temperature.
In this study, we measured the metabolic cost
of protein synthesis and determined whether this cost was influenced by genotype, phenotype, or environment.
2], and overall energy expenditure, resulting in significantly less metabolic cost
to the post-stroke individual compared to walking on an overground treadmill.
So venom production is an expensive phenomenon in terms of metabolic cost
intrigued the UC-Boulder researchers.
The study is one of the first to measure the metabolic cost
, or calories burned, of changing walking speeds, Medical Today reported.
It is tentatively suggested that respiration frequency may be a more sensitive indicator of exertion, and appears to have been an early indicator of elevations in metabolic cost
(heart rate, oxygen uptake and ventilation) as well as RPE that would manifest at 7 km.
Such deviations may impact interpretation of the relationship between metabolic cost
Researchers said that the older adults who regularly participated in highaerobic activities, such as running, have a "lower metabolic cost
of walking" than older, more sedentary adults.
The researchers found that those who ran had a 7 to 10 percent lower metabolic cost
than sedentary adults and those who regularly walked for exercise.
