Neuromuscular Physiology Lab

Main Content

Optimizing human performance through exercise.

TCU’s Neuromuscular Physiology Laboratory focuses on cutting-edge research to enhance human performance through exercise, with a primary emphasis on neuromuscular adaptations from resistance training. It explores areas like motor control, muscle changes, exercise design and sex differences in performance. The lab’s goals include identifying and sharing factors that boost healthy individuals’ performance and restore motor function in clinical cases.

This laboratory offers a research-intensive learning experience for students, preparing them for careers in applied, research and clinical fields. Undergraduate and graduate students can engage in independent and collaborative research projects in these domains and potentially publish their findings in peer-reviewed journals.

Lab Members

Caleb Voskuil, Neuromuscular Physiology LabCaleb Voskuil received his bachelor’s degree in Kinesiology and his master’s degree in exercise physiology from the University of Kentucky. His current research interests include the examination of cross-education, hypertrophy, and fatigue elicited by resistance training. Caleb is from Pecatonica, IL, a small town in Northern Illinois. While not in the lab, he enjoys bodybuilding and is an avid sports fan specifically of the University of Kentucky and all sport franchises in the state of Wisconsin.
