It is specifically examined whether the tendency to appraise bodily sensations as threatening moderates the relative effectiveness of ...
Skeletal muscle is essential to life as it provides the mechanical power for locomotion and breathing.

It is also a critical component of neurodegenerative diseases such as amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), and although the role of muscle in ALS is debated improving muscle functioning prolongs survival. Thus, preventing ...
