Methods: The measurement of Cr and lower limb muscle power during squat jump (SJ) and counter movement jump (CMJ) were performed before (PRE), immediately after (POST) and 3hours after (POST 3h) a SMFR protocol (experimental condition).
We grouped our animals so half experienced the control condition a day before experiencing the experimental condition, and half vice versa.
A 3 (experimental condition: explicit rejection group, ambiguous rejection group, control group) x 3 (type of words: social rejection words, nonsocial negative words, neutral words) mixed design was used.
EMG was recorded throughout each experimental condition. Another three trials of maximum isometric force exertions were recorded after the completion of the fatigue protocol after which participants rested for approximately 20 minutes before the start of the next experimental condition.
As the hedonic valence entered in the statistical model as within-subject factor, both physiological indexes were computed for each experimental condition as follows: unimodal [average response value for the 20x positive trials (sounds + images) and 20x negative trials (sounds + images)]; congruent bimodal (average response for the 20x positive congruent trials and for the 20x negative congruent trials) and incongruent bimodal [average response for the 20x incongruent trials with positive images (negative sound) and for the 20x incongruent trials with negative images(positive sound)].
However, we have to satisfy the restriction of obtaining enough clusters with at least one member of each experimental condition, as to reach the desired number of items per condition.
The study phase differed for each experimental condition, except for duration, which was 150 seconds.
As seen from those tables, the RC algorithm performed better solutions compared with the NN, FN, and [FN.sub.0.5] algorithms for each experimental condition (symmetric/asymmetric).
On the other hand, mechanism in SFC depends on the experimental condition and on the physicochemical properties of interacting parts (bulkiness of grafted ligand, chemical states of drugs, and composition of mobile phase) [42,43].
To enact the minimal-group classrooms in this study, children were allocated either to the experimental condition where adult figures used perceptually salient groups (colour "teams") to organise everyday activities and gave regular reminders about the competition or to the control condition where adults did not refer to the groups despite children doning salient group markers (similar to the situations where adults ignored perceptually salient social categories [8]).
Each confederate was instructed to test 24 participants (12 male and 12 female), 8 in each experimental condition. The confederates were advised to organize things amongst themselves, so as to ensure they never intervened twice in the same subway station.
