About Evangelos A. Christou, Ph.D.

Evangelos A. Christou, Ph.D.

Dr. Christou is a Professor in the Department of Applied Physiology and Kinesiology at the University of Florida and directs the Neuromuscular Physiology Laboratory at UF. Dr. Christou’s lab studies neuromuscular mechanisms that mediate movement control in humans.  The focus is on movement variability which increases with aging and certain neurological diseases and has serious functional implications. The lab attempts to: 1) better understand the neural mechanisms of movement variability; 2) characterize the consequences of exacerbated movement variability in activities of daily living; 3) develop innovative rehabilitation tools to reduce deleterious movement variability.  Dr. Christou’s work has been funded from the National Institutes of Health since 2004 and he is on the Editorial Board of the European Journal of Applied Physiology, Journal of Motor Behavior, and Frontiers in Exercise Physiology.
