Description

This 3000-square-foot laboratory includes a battery of Woodway Desmo and Force treadmills with metabolic carts used in the performance of VO2 max and power assessments. Other resources include two Velotron bicycle ergometers, a pair of Monark cycle ergometers (one configured as a hand crank unit), two reaction response evaluators (Makoto), an Oxycon Mobile lung function testing system (with telemetry), as well as other physiological monitoring, training and performance assessment equipment. An additional pair of Lode Excalibur Sport cycle ergometers is being used in conjunction with a CorTemp system that has temperature sensing pills for monitoring core body temperature. A DEXA scanner for precise and accurate measurement of lean body mass is located in a room immediately adjacent to the main workout and testing part of the lab. A small wet lab is available to support testing. The focus of this laboratory is on evaluating the effects of physical training on cognitive performance and the potential mechanisms by which they are connected.
