• Distinct muscle-tendon interaction during running at different speeds and in different loading conditions 

      Werkhausen, Amelie Corinna; Cronin, Neil J.; Albracht, Kirsten; Bojsen-Møller, Jens; Seynnes, Olivier R. (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2019)
      The interaction between the Achilles tendon and the triceps surae muscles seems to be modulated differently with various task configurations. Here we tested the hypothesis that the increased forces and ankle joint work ...
    • Sarcolab pilot study into skeletal muscle’s adaptation to long-term spaceflight 

      Rittweger, Jörn; Albracht, Kirsten; Flück, Martin; Ruoss, Severin; Brocca, Lorenza; Longa, Emanuela; Moriggi, Manuela; Seynnes, Olivier R.; di Giulio, Irene; Tenori, Leonardo; Vignoli, Alessia; Capri, Miriam; Gelfi, Cecilia; Luchinat, Claudio; Franceschi, Claudio; Bottinelli, Roberto; Cerretelli, Paolo; Narici, Marco (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2018)
      Spaceflight causes muscle wasting. The Sarcolab pilot study investigated two astronauts with regards to plantar flexor muscle size, architecture, and function, and to the underlying molecular adaptations in order to further ...
    • Training-induced increase in Achilles tendon stiffness affects tendon strain pattern during running 

      Werkhausen, Amelie Corinna; Cronin, Neil J.; Albracht, Kirsten; Paulsen, Gøran; Larsen, Askild V.; Bojsen-Møller, Jens; Seynnes, Olivier R. (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2019)
      Background: During the stance phase of running, the elasticity of the Achilles tendon enables the utilisation of elastic energy and allows beneficial contractile conditions for the triceps surae muscles. However, the effect ...
