"Advanced Neuromuscular Exercise Physiology" uses a mix of biochemistry, molecular biology, neurophysiology and muscle physiology to provide current knowledge and research directions in this field. This is the first text devoted solely to the topic which will assist readers in identifying current directions in research and new avenues for exploration. Recognising the rapid changes occurring in the field of neuromuscular exercise physiology, this book provides readers with the most recent findings and though the text is written at an advanced level, the author succeeds at making the content accessible.
