Along with collaborators from Utah State University and Furman University, Dr. Stock published an article in this month's edition of the International Journal of Sports Medicine. The title of this study was "Effects of Age, Joint Angle, and Test Modality on Strength Production and Functional Outcomes." The abstract can be found here.
Earlier this week, Dr. Stock was named one of UCF'S Advancement of Early Career Research Grant awardees. This $7,500 grant was a competitive, university-wide opportunity. The funds will be used to finanically support a UCF graduate student.
In collaboration with researchers at the University of Florida and Texas Tech University, Dr. Stock was a co-author on a newly published study in Ergonomics. The study evaluated the safety considerations of different-sized hospital chairs for older adults. Dr. Stock's role was to assist with force and surface EMG aquision and analysis.

Last week Dr. Stock attended an Intensive Course in Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) at the Berenson-Allen Center for Noninvasive Brain Stimulation of the Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (Harvard Medical School). Each day featured both lectures and hands-on sessions related to the use, safety, and efficacy of TMS.
In collaboration with former lab student, Jacob Mota, Dr. Stock recently published an article in Medical Engineering & Physics. The title of the article was "Shifts in the relationship between motor unit recruitment thresholds versus derecruitment thresholds." The abstract can be found here: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/28918955
Dr. Stock was the co-author on a recent study published in the Journals of Gerontology: Series A. The article can be found here: https://academic.oup.com/biomedgerontology/article/4082430/The-influence-of-age-joint-angle-and-muscle-group
Dr. Stock attended the 40th annual NSCA National Conference July 12-15th in Las Vegas, NV. While there, he was named to the NSCA Foundation's Board of Directors, gave the Gary Dudley Memorial Research Lecture, and was named the Educator of the Year.
The 5th Symposium on Motor Control in Biomechanics was held on Tuesday May 30, 2017 during the pre-conference workshops of the 64th Annual Meeting of the American College of Sports Medicine. Dr. Stock gave an honorary lecture concerning the scientific work of his late mentor, Dr. Travis Beck. Additional information about the ISB Motor Control Working Group may be found here.
