Anticipation and the cortisol awakening response within a dynamic psychosocial work environment (2018)
Journal Article
Campbell, T. G., Westbury, T., Davison, R., & Florida-James, G. (2018). Anticipation and the cortisol awakening response within a dynamic psychosocial work environment. International Journal of Stress Prevention and Wellbeing, 2, Article 2

The cortisol awakening response (CAR) is a distinct element of the diurnal pattern of cortisol release, believed to be partly driven by the anticipation of the demands of the upcoming day. Although evidence suggests that the response may be associate... Read More about Anticipation and the cortisol awakening response within a dynamic psychosocial work environment.

Assessment of occupational stress in higher education employees through the cortisol awakening response. (2017)
Presentation / Conference
Campbell, T., Westbury, T., Davison, R., & Florida-James, G. (2017, July). Assessment of occupational stress in higher education employees through the cortisol awakening response. Poster presented at STAR Conference 2017

Purpose: Although the cortisol awakening response (CAR) has been used to investigate occupational stress among various professions there are limitations to the interpretation of findings obtained through cross-sectional approaches. The aim of this st... Read More about Assessment of occupational stress in higher education employees through the cortisol awakening response..

An exploratory study of the relationship between psychosocial hazard and ambulatory physiological response in higher education employees (2016)
Journal Article
Campbell, T. G., Davison, R., Florida-James, G., & Westbury, T. (2016). An exploratory study of the relationship between psychosocial hazard and ambulatory physiological response in higher education employees. International Journal of Workplace Health Management, 9(3), 360-374. https://doi.org/10.1108/IJWHM-11-2015-0068

Purpose: as exposure to psychosocial hazard at work represents a substantial risk factor for employee health in many modern occupations, being able to accurately assess how employees cope with their working environment is crucial. As the workplace is... Read More about An exploratory study of the relationship between psychosocial hazard and ambulatory physiological response in higher education employees.

Effect of age on 16.1km time trial performance. (2008)
Journal Article
Balmer, J., Bird, S. R., Davison, R., & Lucia, A. (2008). Effect of age on 16.1km time trial performance. Journal of Sports Sciences, 26, 197-206. doi:10.1080/02640410701446901

In this study, we assessed the performance of trained senior (n = 6) and veteran (n = 6) cyclists (mean age 28 years, s = 3 and 57 years, s = 4 respectively). Each competitor completed two cycling tests, a ramped peak aerobic test and an indoor 16.1-... Read More about Effect of age on 16.1km time trial performance..

Optimal power-to-mass ratios when predicting flat and hill-climbing time-trial cycling. (2007)
Journal Article
Nevill, A. M., Jobson, S. A., Davison, R., & Jeukendrup, A. E. (2007). Optimal power-to-mass ratios when predicting flat and hill-climbing time-trial cycling. European Journal of Applied Physiology, 97, 424-431. https://doi.org/10.1007/s00421-006-0189-6

The purpose of this article was to establish whether previously reported oxygen-to-mass ratios, used to predict flat and hill-climbing cycling performance, extend to similar power-to-mass ratios incorporating other, often quick and convenient measure...

Sodium bicarbonate ingestion does not alter the slow component of oxygen uptake kinetics in professional cyclists (2003)
Journal Article
Santalla, A., Pérez, M., Montilla, M., Vicente, L., Davison, R., Earnest, C., & Lucía, A. (2003). Sodium bicarbonate ingestion does not alter the slow component of oxygen uptake kinetics in professional cyclists. Journal of Sports Sciences, 21(1), 39-47. https://doi.org/10.1080/0264041031000070949

We examined the effects of pre-exercise sodium bicarbonate (NaHC[O.sub.3]) ingestion on the slow component of oxygen uptake (V[O.sub.2]) kinetics in seven professional road cyclists during intense exercise. One hour after ingesting either a placebo o... Read More about Sodium bicarbonate ingestion does not alter the slow component of oxygen uptake kinetics in professional cyclists.
