Event Description

Full Description:
Effect of training, β-alanine and NaHCO3 on repeat sprint ability and cycle capacity: Dr Vince Kelly will present the results of his study which investigated whether supplementation of β-alanine for 28 days, in conjunction with repeated sprint and sprint interval training (SIT) and when combined with a pre-exercise dose of NaHCO3, could improve repeated-sprint ability and high intensity cycling capacity in healthy males.

Feedforward and feedback learning in human sensorimotor control: The human sensorimotor control system has exceptional abilities to perform skilful action despite ever changing conditions. Dr David Franklin will discuss how prior sensorimotor cues can be used to learn independent motor memories. The second half of the talk will focus on a few recent studies examining feedback responses; demonstrating both how they are modulated for control and using them to probe the underlying mechanisms of visually guided reaching.
