Dr. Inglis teaches in the area of biomechanics, chronic disease and human performance. His research area focuses on the neuromechanics of human movement in relation to sex differences in performanceAdditionally, he is studying the modulation of the motor unit discharge rate and the influence of musculoskeletal and tendon differences on force steadiness throughout the force gradation process. The long-term objective of his research program is to explore potential biomechanical sex differences and their effect on the neural system to develop training or rehabilitation programs.  

  • Sex-related differences in motor unit recruitment and discharge rates 
  • Musculoskeletal differences effect on the modulatioof motor unit activity 
  • Neural control of movement 
  • Neural, physiological and biomechanical differences in the muscle and tendon unit in males and females 
  • Biomechanical and neural influences on the rate of torque development
