Scientific focus areas
-
research experience Specific research areas comprise (i) Adaptive changes in neuromuscular function and muscle morphology/architecture induced by exercise/training and detraining/inactivity,
incl. aging and immobilization; (ii) Evaluation of mechanical muscle function (strength,
power, RFD) and postural balance in young and old adults; (iii) Effects of resistance training on musculoskeletal health and neuromuscular function in young and old adults;
