Robert O. Deaner, Ph.D., is an associate professor in the Department of Psychology at Grand Valley State University in Allendale,
Mich. His overarching goal is to contribute to a scientific understanding of human nature, especially by demonstrating the value
of evolutionary theory. Most of his current projects involve sex differences and sports.
Sandra K. Hunter, Ph.D., FACSM, is a professor in the exercise science program with the Department of Physical Therapy at
Marquette University in Milwaukee, Wisc. Her research focus includes understanding the mechanisms for (1) sex and age differences
in motor control, neuromuscular fatigability and human performance in healthy and clinical populations; and (2) the added effects
of stress and exercise training on motor control and fatigability of old adults and clinical populations.
This commentary presents Drs. Deaner’s and Hunter’s views on a topic related to the research report that they and their
colleagues recently authored. The report of their original investigation appears in the March 2015 issue of Medicine &
Science in Sport & Exercise® (MSSE). more
