OBJECTIVE To test if simple motor imagery, like thumb abduction, preferentially influences the excitability of the spinal or cortical motoneurons. METHODS Ten healthy subjects underwent two separate experiments, each consisting of recording F waves and MEPs from abductor pollicis brevis (APB) in three consecutive sessions: (1) baseline, (2) after(More)
OBJECTIVE To test if motor imagery prevents the rest-induced suppression of anterior horn cell excitability. METHODS Ten healthy subjects underwent two separate experiments, each consisting of stimulating the median nerve 100 times and recording F-waves from abductor pollicis brevis (APB) in three consecutive sessions: (1) after muscle exercise to(More)
