Participants for Research Studies Wanted, Brunel University

We are looking to recruit well trained male cyclists between the ages of 18 and 40 to participate in our upcoming MSc research here at Brunel University, West London. We will be investigating the effects of progressive dehydration on cerebral blood flow and oxygenation during prolonged submaximal and maximal exercise in the heat.

The study will involve measurements of cerebral oxygenation, cerebral blood flow, core temperature and blood pressure during prolonged submaximal and maximal cycling exercise in a warm environment. Subjects will experience dehydration during exercise and when maintaining hydration status by ingesting fluids.

This study requires 5 separate visits to the laboratory. The first visit will be used to assess your maximal aerobic capacity (i.e., V02 max) and will last no longer than 30 minutes. Visits 2-3 will incorporate cycling in the heat, which will last a maximum of 2 hours each. The final 2 visits will be the main experiment consisting of the progressive dehydration trial and the euhydration or normal hydration trial and will last 5-6 hours each. All visits will take place within a month period.

If you are interested in participating or have any questions regarding our study please feel free to contact Benjamin Garcia ([email protected]).
