Studies centre on understanding the interrelationships between neural control and muscle properties during muscle contractions in humans. Models used to study these factors include fatigue, aging, and exercise training. Collaborative efforts using magnetic resonance imaging and spectroscopy techniques to examine relevant factors relating to neuromuscular function are also employed.
