Motor unit recruitment and muscle fiber activation (by type and percentage of total muscle mass) for different representative activities (e.g. laying on the couch, standing, walking, jogging, running rapidly, maximally jumping, light load weight lifting, heavy load weight lifting, maximal load weight lifting). Muscle fiber activation level (firing frequency) and the recruitment process Consequence of long term use of a muscle at a certain level of activation (for both the activated motor units and the non-activated motor units) Satellite cells, myonuclei and muscle hypertrophy Effect of electrical stimulation on muscle, in healthy versus injured people. Motor Control Section 3: Motor control aspects of resistance training Unit 6a: Neuromuscular adaptations with resistance training Short term and long term neural adaptations with resistance training Gender and age differences in neural adaptations

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
