Kevin E Power


I am an associate professor in the School of Human Kinetics and Recreation specializing in neuroscience.

I received both my bachelor's and master's degrees from the School of Human Kinetics and Recreation at Memorial University and am a certified exercise physiologist and course examiner for the Canadian Society for Exercise Physiology.

During my studies at Memorial I conducted a variety of applied neuromuscular physiology research projects aimed at examining how different exercise interventions affected the output of the motor system. It was during this time I developed a strong interest in the neural control of movement and decided to complete my PhD through the Department of Physiology (Spinal Cord Research Centre, Neuroscience) at the University of Manitoba in Winnipeg. During my doctoral training I examined the mechanisms by which spinal motoneurones are activated and how their excitability is modulated during motor output using reduced models.

Prior to joining Memorial University in July, 2012, I completed two years of postdoctoral training with Dr. Phillip Gardiner at the University of Manitoba (2008 to 2010) and was an assistant professor of Kinesiology at the University of Ontario Institute of Technology from July 2010 until June 2012.
