Intensity-dependent contribution of neuromuscular fatigue after constant-load cycling
(Wolters Kluwer, 2016)
Purpose: We tested the hypothesis that central and peripheral fatigue after constant-load cycling exercise would vary with exercise intensity and duration. Methods: Twelve well-trained male cyclists (V˙O2max, 4.49 ± 0.35 ...
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 ...
An optimal protocol for measurement of corticospinal excitability, short intracortical inhibition and intracortical facilitation in the rectus femoris
The study aimed to determine the optimal application of single- and paired-pulse transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) in the rectus femoris. Twenty-nine male adults participated in the study, which involved 5 separate ...
Corticospinal excitability during shortening and lengthening actions with incremental torque output
The modulation of motor evoked potentials (MEPs), an index of corticospinal excitability, has been shown to increase during isometric contractions with incremental torque output in accordance with the contribution between ...
