C. J. Barclay



Muscle physiologist specialising in energetic aspects of skeletal and cardiac muscle, and with a particular focus on muscle efficiency. Major technique used is measurement of muscle heat production using ultra-sensitive thermal sensors (thermopiles) that are constructed in our laboratory. Research area: Physiology of skeletal and cardiac muscle Research expertise: - muscle energy consumption - muscle efficiency - muscle heat production Research skills: - measurement of muscle energy output as heat and work - development of software for data acquisition and analysis - mathematical modelling of contraction processes, diffusion and biochemical kinetics - fabrication of thermal microsensors (thermopiles, thin-film techniques, antimony-bismuth thermocouples). Key publication: • Barclay, C. J. (2015). Energetics of contraction. Comprehensive Physiology 5, 961-995.
