PRESENTER:
Alex Yacyshyn, MSc student

ABSTRACT: Fatigue that develops within the muscle during physical activity can impact quality of daily living, particularly in older adults. This presentation will cover an overview of age-related changes to the nervous and muscular systems and the effects on muscle fatigue. Data from a recent UBCO study investigating the differences in the fatigability of muscles for males and females across the human lifespan will also be presented.
