MOLECULE MECHANISMS OF MUSCLE FATIGUE

  • Henry Doan University of Utah Health Science LEAP Program

Abstract

Fatigue is a feeling of tiredness that protects the body from loss of energy stores. If the sense of fatigue is too strong, it can be very aversive, leading to suffering, and inability to go through normal life motion, a condition known as chronic fatigue syndrome. Also too little fatigue will damage our bodies and muscles. Fatigue is a homeostatic system similar to the pain system, but also different since pain and fatigue do not have the same sensor mechanisms. Dr. Alan light and his associates are researching the causes of fatigue and how it differentiates itself from other phenomena that occur in the body.
