Basic research in the area of exercise and the aging process is conducted by faculty and students in the School of Kinesiology in the Faculty of Health Sciences. Research laboratories are located in the Labatt Health Sciences Building dedicated to studies of cardiovascular and muscle metabolic exercise responses and to neuromuscular physiology and aging.
The CCAA current basic research is focused on studying:
- The ways in which older individuals differ from young people in their physiological responses to exercise
- The physiological limitations to exercise in older adults
- The physiological and biochemical causes of muscle fatigue
- Properties of muscle in the aged
- Cardiovascular function and muscle metabolism
- Adaptations with exercise training in older adults and physical activity guidelines.
