Mitigating Age-Related Neuromuscular Fatigue

Aging is associated with dramatic reduction in muscle strength and motor control.

In this study, investigators propose to investigate mechanisms of muscular fatigue in older and young adults by studying how my muscle activity affects how my brain controls my muscle.
