Public lecture : Ocean rowing and human evolution; an unlikely combination

Source: ncsem.em.org  December 2022


This public lecture will be delivered by Dr Danny Longman, Lecturer in Physiology in the School of Sport, Exercise and Health Sciences at Loughborough University, on Thursday 19th January at 5:30pm.

In this talk, Danny Longman will take you on a rowboat between the icebergs of the Arctic Ocean and across the troubled waters of the Black Sea (metaphorically, of course). The talk will discuss the physical and mental challenges that come with the physical strain, undernourishment, seasickness, and exhaustion of restricting sleep to 60-minutes sessions, and what makes it all worthwhile. Finally, Danny will discuss how his ultra-endurance and research careers are fundamentally intertwined, each benefiting from the other.

This public lecture is online, free to attend, and is open to anyone with an interest in the topic.
