Abstract

ABSTRACT

Dr. Gary Alton Dudley was a modern pioneer in the study of muscle. His work encompassed almost 30 years of study with dramatic discoveries in the areas of muscle physiology, resistance training, and spinal cord injury and therapy. The greater understanding of muscle fiber changes with training, as well as novel experiments using magnetic resonance imaging and single fiber analyses, allowed for many discoveries in the areas of resistance training and detraining, the roles of electrical stimulation in training muscle, the compatibility of different exercise modes, and the characteristics of and treatment interventions for spinal cord injury. His work and insights will provide future investigators a knowledge base from which to work for both basic and applied research in muscle and exercise physiology.
