Cardiac mechanics are impaired during fatiguing exercise and cold pressor test in healthy older adults. J Apply Physiol. IN PRESS, accepted 11/12/12. In this study, Dr. Muller used Tissue Doppler Imaging to quantify how fast the left ventricle contracts and relaxes during stimuli that activate the sympathetic nervous system (static handgrip, hand in ice water, and hypoxia) in both young and older people.
