Young, Older Volunteers Needed for Study of Muscle Fatigue

Researchers in the kinesiology department are seeking both young and older volunteers for a study investigating age-related differences in muscle fatigue.

Participants must:

  • be 23-40 or 65-80 years old
  • have no diagnosed diseases
  • be a non-smoker
  • not be pregnant
  • not perform regular exercise for more than 60 minutes per week
  • be eligible to undergo an MRI (have no metal implants or a cardiac pacemaker)

Participants will be asked to complete three visits to the Institute for Applied Life Sciences on campus. One visit will be completed at the Human Testing Center. During this visit, participants will be familiarized with the procedures for Visits 2 and 3, which will take place at the Human Magnetic Resonance Center. Each visit will take approximately 90 minutes, and $10 compensation will be provided upon completion of each visit.
