Common synaptic inputs and persistent inward currents of vastus lateralis motor units are reduced in older male adults (2024)
Journal Article

Although muscle atrophy may partially account for age-related strength decline, it is further influenced by alterations of neural input to muscle. Persistent inward currents (PIC) and the level of common synaptic inputs to motoneurons influence neuro...

Acute adaptation of central and peripheral motor unit features to exercise‐induced fatigue differs with concentric and eccentric loading (2023)
Journal Article

New Findings: What is the central question of this study? Conflicting evidence exists on motor unit (MU) firing rate in response to exercise‐induced fatigue, possibly due to the contraction modality used: Do MU properties adapt similarly following co...

Contrast‐enhanced ultrasound repeatability for the measurement of skeletal muscle microvascular blood flow (2023)
Journal Article

Contrast-enhanced ultrasound (CEUS) can be used to directly assess skeletal muscle perfusion. However, its repeatability over time has not yet been validated and therefore its use in longitudinal measures (i.e., exploring the impact of a chronic inte...
