Graduate assistantships are available in the Biomechanics Laboratory of the
Department of Exercise and Sport Science at East Carolina University.
Students will pursue a Master's degree in exercise science / biomechanics
for two years in projects funded in part by the National Institutes of
Health, examining the mechanisms of gait adaptations in aging using 3D
motion analysis and electromyography. The exercise neuroscience studies
focus on the motor cortical mechanisms of acute and chronic adaptations to
exercise using transcranial magnetic brain stimulation in humans. Research
is carried out in collaboration with the Human Performance Laboratory and
the Department of Physical Therapy. Apply at http://www.ecu.edu/gradschool/
