Previous studies have investigated the relationship between prefrontal cortex activation and perceived exertion during prolonged exercise. However, the effect of perceived exertion on prefrontal cortex activity is confounded by exercise intensity. Therefore, the changes in prefrontal cortex activity in response to perceived exertion remain unclear. The(More)
To elucidate the strategy of the activity of motor units (MUs) to maintain a constant-force isometric contraction, I examined the behavior of MUs in knee extensor muscles [(vastus medialis (VM), vastus lateralis (VL) and rectus femoris (RF)] during a sustained contraction at 5% of maximal voluntary contraction for 5 min. In all cases, the spike interval(More)
The characteristic of discharge behaviors of motor units (MUs) during low level contraction was investigated. The discharge of MUs in the m. vastus medialis was observed during the sustained contraction at 4 different levels below 10% MVC (2, 4, 8 and 10% MVC) for 15 min. The spike interval of all observed MUs gradually elongated during an initial several(More)
