Special Issue "Effects of Exercise on Skeletal Muscle and Healthy Aging"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 October 2023) | Viewed by 1248
Interests: healthy aging; sport genetics; physical activity
This Special Issue will consider review, mini-review, commentary, or perspective articles focused on providing novel insights into the effects of exercise on skeletal muscle and/or healthy aging, including physical exercise, mindfulness, cognition, mental health and prevention of aging-related disorders, analysis of post-training adaptations of the body using both physiological and biochemical indicators for skeletal muscle, as well as exercise assessment of muscle metabolic processes.
The presented Special Issue will also discuss issues related to the impact of various forms of physical activity carried out in changing environmental conditions on the anatomical and physiological changes in muscles. An interesting and important issue will be the assessment of the impact of physical activity in the process of rehabilitation of patients with a loss of physiological functions and during oncological treatment in terms of adaptive changes in muscles.
Several original research articles will also be considered on a case-by-case basis by the Editors.
We assume that specialists in the field of sports kinesiology, rehabilitation, sports trainers and doctors will be willing to present their research results in this Special Issue.
