Three new papers accepted! Neurobiological effects of exercise on motor unit function in aging, muscle hypertrophy on motor unit and NMJ function, and NMJ dysfunction as a driver of age-related muscle dysfunction.

 

Voluntary wheel running with and without follistatin overexpression improves NMJ transmission but not motor unit loss in late life of C57BL/6J mice

 

 

Follistatin-induced muscle hypertrophy in aged mice improves neuromuscular junction innervation and function

 

 

Profiling age-related muscle weakness and wasting: neuromuscular junction transmission as a driver of age-related physical decline
