Mirror training augments the cross-education of strength and affects inhibitory paths
(American College of Sports Medicine, 2016)
Purpose: Unilateral strength training strengthens not only the muscles on the trained side but also the homologous muscles on the untrained side; however, the magnitude of this interlimb cross-education is modest. We ...
Corticospinal responses following strength training: a systematic review and meta‐analysis
Strength training results in changes in skeletal muscle; however, changes in the central nervous system also occur. Over the last 15 years, non‐invasive brain stimulation techniques, such as transcranial magnetic stimulation, ...
Determining the potential sites of neural adaptation to cross-education: implications for the cross-education of muscle strength
Cross-education describes the strength gain in the opposite, untrained limb following a unilateral strength training program. Since its discovery in 1894, several studies now confirm the existence of cross-education in ...
Ipsilateral corticomotor responses are confined to the homologous muscle following cross-education of muscular strength
(Canadian Science Publishing, 2018)
Cross-education of strength occurs when strength-training 1 limb increases the strength of the untrained limb and is restricted to the untrained homologous muscle. Cortical circuits located ipsilateral to the trained limb ...
