Effects of Fatigue Induced by Repetitive Movements and Isometric Tasks on Reaction Time
[Abstract] Purpose: The understanding of fatigue of the human motor system is important in the fields of ergonomics, sport, rehabilitation and neurology. In order to understand the interactions between fatigue and reaction ...
Central fatigue induced by short-lasting finger tapping and isometric tasks: a study of silent periods evoked at spinal and supraspinal levels
[Abstract] The neural substrates of fatigue induced by muscular activity have been addressed in depth in relation to isometric tasks. For these activities, when fatigue develops, it has been noted that the duration of the ...
Balancing the excitability of M1 circuitry during movement observation without overt replication
[Abstract] Although observation of a movement increases the excitability of the motor system of the observer, it does not induce a motor replica. What is the mechanism for replica suppression? We performed a series of ...
Differential responses of spinal motoneurons to fatigue induced by short-lasting repetitive and isometric tasks
[Abstract] Compared to isometric activities, the neural basis of fatigue induced by repetitive tasks has been scarcely studied. Recently, we showed that during short-lasting repetitive tasks at the maximal possible rate ...
Hand motor fatigability induced by a simple isometric task in spinal cord injury
[Abstract] This study aimed: (1) to evaluate the hand motor fatigability in people with spinal cord injury (SCI) and compare it with measurements obtained form an able-bodied population; (2) to compare the hand motor ...
