Roger Maro Enoka is professor and former chair of the Department of Integrative Physiology at the University of Colorado at Boulder. He is also the director of the Neurophysiology of Movement Lab.
According to Web of Knowledge, Professor Enoka has 232 published items, which have been cited a total of 9,254 times (as of Nov 10, 2014). His most frequently cited paper (622 citations) is titled "Neurobiology of Muscle Fatigue". Professor Enoka has an h-index of 51 as of November 10, 2014.
In 2012, Enoka co-authored a review on the motor unit with C.J. Heckman. This work represents a major contribution as the work was published in Comprehensive Physiology, which is the most authoritative collection of review content ever assembled in the physiological sciences.
To appear in publication in 2013, Enoka co-authored a chapter in the 5th edition of Principles of Neural Science along with Pearson KG. The chapter is titled "The motor unit and muscle action."
Invited lectures and awards
In May 2010, Enoka was inducted into the University of Otago, School of Physical Education Wall of Fame.
On Nov 1, 2012, Enoka delivered a keynote lecture titled "Adaptations in physical performance from childhood to senescence" at the 4th International Congress on Physical Activity and Public Health in Sydney, Australia.
