Research areas

Research areas comprise (i) neuromuscular plasticity to training, inactivity and injury; (ii) the biology and biomechanics of aging, and (iii) human motor control. Research areas have focused on the adaptive change in neural function, muscle morphology and muscle architecture induced by training and detraining/inactivity, in young as well as aging individuals.

Specific research topics include various physiological and biomechanical factors related to training, aging, inactivity, muscle-tendon injury, and rehabilitation from disease and post surgery states. The research has addressed the influence of the above factors on aspects such as neuromuscular function incl. spinal circuitry function, mechanical muscle function (eccentric and concentric muscle contraction strength, rate of force development, power), muscle morphology and muscle architecture, myogenic stem cells (satellite cells), tendon and aponeurosis function, functional performance capacity in the elderly (incl. postural balance control), prevention of ACL injury in the female athlete, validation of clinical rehabilitation paradigms.

Research information

Research areas have focused on the adaptive change in neural function, muscle morphology and muscle-tendon architecture and biomachanical function induced by training and/or detraining/inactivity, in young as well as aging individuals. Scientific experimental work also have been conducted to examine the role of antagonist muscle coactivation for knee joint stabilization and ACL ligament protection, to investigate spinal motor function during walking, running and maximal force exertion, and to evaluate biomechanical aspects related to muscle-aponeurosis-tendon function in vivo, muscle work efficiency, and optimization of neuromotor performance in humans.
