Professor Angus Hunter Inaugural Lecture
Neuromuscular function for athletic performance, health and disease: brain, muscle and environment - who’s the boss?
This lecture will focus on how Angus and his research team have developed new understanding of how the brain recruits skeletal muscle in elite athletes and clinical populations in a variety of conditions. This work has created new knowledge in potential interventions for enhancing athletic and physical performance (e.g. mobility), whether this be through protection of brain health in contact sport athletes or ameliorating sarcopenia in African populations.

Angus is currently Head of Department of Sport Science and Professor of Neuromuscular Physiology. Prior to joining NTU in October 2021 he was Associate Dean of Research for The Faculty of Health Sciences and Sport, University of Stirling. He was at The University of Stirling since 2002 before which he received his Doctoral degree from University of Cape Town (foreign scholarship), in Neuromuscular Physiology examining various manipulations on neural fatigue. His research focuses on understanding how the brain recruits muscle within different populations and within different conditions. This research spans understanding of elite athletic performance, sport concussion to Non Communicable Diseases of South African township populations.
