Brief description Skeletal muscle dysfunction occurs in certain diseases, aging and exercise, and can deleteriously affect lifestyle and mobility. This project investigates the molecular mechanisms involved in the complex sequence of events that occur in each individual muscle fibre, starting from stimulation by a nerve through to the fibre contracting. This should give information about causes of skeletal muscle dysfunction in myotonia, heart failure and other situations, and help development of therapies.
