My research over the past more than 20 years has been directed at describing and understanding neuromuscular function using a systems level approach in humans. This approach centers on elucidating the interrelationships between neural control and muscle structure and function during static and dynamic muscle contractions. Main techniques include isometric and dynamic muscle function, electrical muscle stimulation, electromyography and imaging. Models used to explore questions in this field include fatigue, aging, exercise training, and clinical conditions. Findings and outcomes are relevant to integrative human biology and rehabilitative sciences. My lab has received uninterrupted competitive funding obtained from national and local agencies such as NSERC and CIHR. I have trained 4 PDFs, 17 Doctoral candidates, 22 Master’s level students and many undergraduates.
