Fatigability of the arm and leg muscles in young and older adults
The Human Movement and Neurophysiology (HuMaN) Laboratory is recruiting undergraduate students. They will participate in studies evaluating neuromuscular function during fatiguing contractions performed by young and older adults. Duties include helping in data collection, preparing the experimental set up and participation in journal club meetings. The undergraduate student will be mentored by the principal investigator and work with graduate students. Data from this project can be presented in conferences and will be used in future publications.
Timeline of the project: 1 to 2 years Time commitment: Approximately 5 hours/week
Interested in Exercise Physiology, Neuropsychology or Biomedical Engineering. Interested to work with older adults (>65 years old) Students will need complete the IRB training for human subjects.
