    • Cancer and cardio-myopathy: a place for a non-pharmacological treatment like exercise ?

      Summary: Chemotherapies are known to induce cardiovascular impairment ranging in severity from asymptomatic, subclinical dysfunction to substantial cardiomyopathy leading to congestive heart failure and...

    • Effects of muscle group, muscle length and metabolic profile on differences in neuromuscular fatigue between prepubertal children and adults

      Summary: The aims of this PhD thesis were to quantify the effects of (i) force level differences, using different muscle groups and muscle lengths, and (ii) of metabolic profile differences on the differences...

    • Physical Activity in Cancer Patients: Current Evidence and research perspectives

      Summary: There is an increasing number of meta-analyses of randomized trials consistently showing a benefit of physical activity in cancer patients on the consequences of the disease and its treatments...

    • How muscle stops building when it's working

      Summary: Muscle cells have to cope with high energy demand during physical exercise. Some anabolic processes are ATP-costly (protein and glycogen synthesis) and can thus be reduced to ensure cell survival...

    • Acute and chronic neuromuscular adaptations to local vibration: Toward a new neuromuscular rehabilitation modality

      Summary: Vibration applied locally to a relaxed muscle or its tendon is a powerful stimulus for Ia afferents originating from muscle spindles. Their prolonged activation (i.e. 20 to 60 min) may trigger...

    • Changes in corticospinal excitability after whole body exercise

      Summary: The efficacy of the corticospinal pathway to relay neural signals from higher brains areas to the locomotor muscles (i.e. corticospinal excitability) is subject to alterations following exercise...

    • Effectiveness of an individualized training based on force-velocity profile on jump performance

      Summary: Ballistic performances are mainly determined by the maximal power (Pmax) lower limbs can generate, but also by the underlying individual force-velocity (F-v) mechanical profile, especially the...

    • Fatigue and recovery of neuromuscular function following competitive soccer match-play

      Summary: The topic of fatigue and recovery following competitive soccer match-play has gained considerable attention within the scientific literature, largely due to the demanding nature of modern-day...

    • Neuromuscular consequences of obesity

      Summary: Although the cardiovascular and metabolic consequences of obesity have been studied extensively over the last two decades, less attention has been paid to investigating the impact of obesity...

    • Circulating miRNAs in response to exercise and muscle injury

      Summary: MicroRNAs (miRNA) are small non-coding RNAs involved in the post-transcriptional control of gene expression. They can be released by the cells upon stimulation or injury and can be measured in...

    • Metabolic and Fatigue Profiles Are Comparable Between Prepubertal Children and Well-Trained Adult Endurance Athletes

      Summary: It is well acknowledged that prepubertal children have smaller body dimensions and a poorer mechanical (movement) efficiency, and thus a lower work capacity than adults. However, the scientific...

    • From ‘De Motu Animalium’ (1680) to ‘De Velocitate Neuron-Motorium’ (2019): towards a better understanding of how the nervous system drives muscles

      Summary: The objectives of my talk will be to discuss the often underestimated contribution of the nervous system to the force-generating capacity of a muscle and the valuable role such knowledge can...
