Research at the school aligns with he causes and manifestations of fatigue in the context of physical activity. That is, why does fatigue happen during physical activity and what forms does it take? The aim is to produce research that places it at the leading edge of worldwide scholarship concerning the theoretical understanding of fatigue. There are obvious reasons why fatigue is an important concern in the area of sports performance but fatigue is also of interest to those who study physical activity for well being. This is because fatigue limits and constrains the types and amount of physical activity that people want and feel able to do. In addition, fatigue is an important consideration in the study of certain disease states such multiple sclerosis, Parkinson's disease and metabolic syndrome because physical activity is known to improve related symptoms and quality of life for people suffering these conditions. Staff of the school conduct research in a variety of physical activity related sub-disciplines, addressing a variety of research questions. Some of these relate to fatigue. For example, Professor Marino is doing research into thermo-regulation to explain the role of heat production in fatigue onset. Likewise, other staff members (Dr Dionigi, Dr Cannon) study forms of exercise prescription that lead to improved musculo-skeletal capacity amongst older people. This work sheds light on how we can help to delay muscular fatigue amongst older people, thus improving their physical independence and quality of life.
