Motor cortical and corticospinal function differ during an isometric squat compared with isometric knee extension
It has been suggested that task‐specific changes in neurophysiological function (neuroplasticity) should be assessed using testing modalities that replicate the characteristics of the intervention. The squat is a commonly ...
Sex differences in fatigability following exercise normalised to the power-duration relationship
Due to morphological differences, females demonstrate greater fatigue resistance of locomotor muscle during single‐limb and whole‐body exercise modalities. Whilst females sustain a greater relative intensity of single‐limb, ...
Deception improves time trial performance in well-trained cyclists without augmented fatigue
(Wolters Kluwer, 2018)
Purpose To investigate the effects of feedback, in the form of a virtual avatar paced at 100% and 102% of baseline performance, on neuromuscular fatigue after a 4-km cycling time trial (TT). We hypothesized that improved ...
Differences in force normalising procedures during submaximal anisometric contractions
Eccentric contractions are thought to require a unique neural activation strategy. However, due to greater intrinsic force generating capacity of muscle fibres during eccentric contraction, the understanding of neural ...
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 ...
Contraction intensity and sex differences in knee-extensor fatigability
Females are less fatigable than males during isometric contractions across various muscles and intensities. However, sex differences in knee-extensor fatigability remain relatively unexplored. Purpose: To determine the sex ...
