Research Interests: Dr. Arnold’s lab is focused on translational neuromuscular physiology of genetic disorders of muscle, nerve and the motor neuron, as well as aging-related loss of physical function. A major focus of his preclinical lab work is the investigation of motor neuron dysfunction as a key mechanism of loss of function during aging. He has ongoing clinical trials in muscle hyperexcitability disorders (dystrophic and non-dystrophic myotonias) and in loss of physical function related to aging.
Clinical Interests: Nerve and muscle disorders, aging-related loss of physical function, functional and rehabilitation aspects of neuromuscular disorders and special electromyography (EMG) techniques, including single fiber EMG, decomposition EMG, SFEMG, quantitative EMG and less commonly utilized nerve conduction studies.
