The IOC Medical Commission recently published a new volume titled Neuromuscular Aspects of Sport Performance in the Encyclopedia of Sports Medicine publication series.


The publication provides a comprehensive overview of neuromuscular function in sport and exercise, combining the basics of mechanical knowledge with guidance on the application of science to enhance or predict performance.


It also describes specific research tools, invasive approaches, and in-vivo techniques used to understand the true nature of tensile and ligament forces during intensive exercise. Additionally, two recently developed research methodologies, the high speed ultrasonography (US) and the transmagnetic electrical stimulation (TMES), that can be applied during natural locomotion, are featured in this book.
