Does Resistance Training Improve the Structure of Coordination in the Control of a Well-Defined Motor Objective?

Research Paper Title Not all brawn, but some brain. Strength gains after training alters kinematic motor abundance in hopping. Background The effects of resistance training on a muscle’s neural, architectural, and mechanical properties are well established. However, whether resistance training can positively change the coordination of multiple motor elements in the control of a well-defined… Read More

How Does Sleep Restriction & Cognitive Load affect Performance on a Simulated Marksmanship Task?

Research Paper Title Sleep restriction and cognitive load affect performance on a simulated marksmanship task. Background Sleep restriction degrades cognitive and motor performance, which can adversely impact job performance and increase the risk of accidents. Military personnel are prone to operating under sleep restriction, and previous work suggests that military marksmanship may be negatively affected… Read More
