Neuromuscular Lab

Neuromuscular Lab

Our studies 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.

Cardiorespiratory Lab

Cardiorespiratory Lab

Our studies are directed at describing the cardiovascular system and muscle metabolism in response to exercise, and in particular the oxygen uptake kinetics. Some studies focus on older subjects and age-related changes in the exercise response. Cardiovascular, respiratory and metabolic adaptations and control with exercise and aging are also of interest.
