The focus of research in the Muscle Physiology Lab is related to quantifying age, gender, and activity based changes in human skeletal muscle function. We use a combination of non-invasive techniques to measure the roles of neural activation, intramuscular metabolism, contractile function, and blood flow in the development of muscle fatigue in a variety of populations. The primary source of funding for our work is the National Institutes of Health (NIA).
