Project description
Loss of force production during aging can affect many aspects of daily living, including balance. In this project, new techniques of neuroimagery will be applied to traditional measurement techniques to understand neural control of force and balance during aging. Furthermore, we will determine whether a resistance training intervention will positively influence neural control, identifying mechanisms behind improved function.
