J Neural Transm ; Human Kinetics, ; Relationship of the overtraining syndrome with stress, fatigue, and serotonin.

The septo-hippocampal system initially performs the conferee function, comparing the sensorial data synthesis at that moment with those predictions that take into account the memories stored in several spots of the Central Nervous System CNSas well as the action plans generated by the prefrontal cortex.

Urhausen A, Kindermann W.

The athlete may express that he is not feeling tired, but he is not able to mobilize the necessary energy to participate in a sportive event. The overloaded training is related to the hard training for a few days, followed by a short recovery period that in this case is essential. Effects of athletic endurance training on infection rates and immunity. It has been observed that the overtraining syndrome is generally caused by a sum of multiple stressing events in the life, such as physical training, sleep loss, exposition to stressing environments humidity, cold, altitude, and heatand change of residence, occupational pressures, and interpersonal difficulties.

Brown and Benchmark, The New American Library Inc. The term stress means the status generated by the perception of the stimulus that cause emotional excitement, and upon the perturbation of the homeostasis, it triggers an adaptation process that is anx among other braln by an increasing adrenaline secretion, producing several systemic manifestations with physiological and psychological disturbances Int J Sports Med ; Those training induced alterations in the metabolism of the nutrients have been proposed as one of the factors that contribute to the overtraining syndrome.

Relationship of the overtraining syndrome with stress, fatigue, and serotonin

Deficiencies or imbalances in neurotransmitters and neuromodulators can also be caused by severe or prolonged stress. Overtraining and sports psychology.

Evidence for possible role of 5-hydroxytryptamine in the genesis of fatigue in man: Acute tryptophan depletion in bulimia: Therefore, the serotonin-mediated responses would have an adaptation sense, as for levels of potential or distal danger it is convenient that the fight and escape behaviors are inhibited, making possible for the individual to choose the best strategies that means: It has been demonstrated that the cerebral serotonin level depends on the free in the plasma tryptophan that increases whenever the free fatty overtdaining concentration increases.

The only effective treatment is the prolonged rest that makes impossible to the athletes to participate in competitions, and may lead to a loss of motivation, and even to abandon the sports. Effects of conditioned running on plasma, liver and brain tryptophan and on brain 5-hydroxytryptamine metabolism of the rat.

Blackwell Scientific Publications, ;1: Brain norepinephrine and metabolites after treadmill training and wheel running neurotransmltters rats. Br J Sports Med ; Stress can be defined within a psychological perspective as the individual perception related to the imbalance between the physical or psychological demands, and their resources to face them in an activity that is regarded important, such as, for instance, the sportive action to the athlete 8.


Med Sci Sports Exer ; Responses neurltransmitters plasma glutamine, free tryptophan and branched-chain acids to prolong exercise after a regime designed to reduce muscle glycogen. Effects of acute physical exercise on central serotonergic systems. Athletes of all performance levels may develop the syndrome, and a relevant number of signs and symptoms have been associated to it.

Brain neurotransmitters in fatigue and overtraining.

This process is called super-compensation. Although much of the overtraining symptoms are similar to the resistance and exhaustion phases of the Seyle’s GAS, this model is unable to clarify the very mechanism of the overtraining syndrome Due to the increase of the free fatty acid in the plasma levels during the resistance training, this theory proposes that the levels of cerebral serotonin increase before the presence of the overtraining 41, Primarily observed in athletes, the overtraining syndrome is characterized by metabolic changes, reduction in the athletic performance, and the response to the training in healthy individuals, incidence of bruises and viral and bacterial infections due to the fall in the immunological resistance, alterations in the mood, constant fatigue, etc.
