35 36 Biologic Regulation of Physical Activity Rhodes and colleagues identified regions of the brain that define wheelrunning behavior in mice (117). These authors compared immunoreactivity for FOS, which is expressed in response to neuronal stimulation, in the brains of mice selectively bred for voluntary wheel running to those of nonactive control animals. Seven brain regions were considered as potentially responsible for the variation in wheel running between the two groups: the caudate-putamen complex, prefrontal cortex, medial frontal cortex, nucleus accumbens, piriform cortex, sensory cortex, and lateral hypothalamus.
When objective measures such as heart rate were utilized, the male predominance increased to 23%. In the four studies reviewed by Corder and Ekelund, which assessed activity by accelerometers in free-living conditions, activity in the youth 4 to 15 years old was greater in the males by 8% to 20% (31). The meta-analysis of 127 studies of physical activity in individuals between 2 months and 30 years of age by Eaton and Enns indicated significantly higher levels in males throughout, with the gap becoming greater with age (43).
Several lines of inquiry have examined the role of dopamine in the control of locomotor activity in animals: •• Volume of wheel running in genetically active rodents is linked to an augmented dopaminergic effect. For instance, Bronikowski and colleagues reported a 20% increase in dopamine receptors D2 and D4 in mice selected for high levels of wheel running compared to control mice (17). Fink and Reis described higher levels of dopamine activity in the nigrostriatal and mesolimbic pathways in the brains of mice with greater wheel-running activity (52).
