Research Overview

To move with purpose and interact effectively with the environment are fundamental features of human life quality and independence. Muscle and the neural control of muscle function are primary requirements for directed movement. The link between the central nervous system's control of voluntary movement and muscle contractile function forms the motor portion of the neuromuscular system.

Research studies in my lab are directed at describing and understanding muscle contractile output (force or torque) in relation to neural activation and motor control of the muscle. We study these aspects in humans at a systems level with an integrated approach using minimally invasive techniques.

Our lab is within the School of Kinesiology, and supported by the Faculty of Health Sciences, and the Schulich School of Medicine & Dentistry at The University of Western Ontario.
