PURPOSE The well-established central deficit in ultraendurance running races is not understood. The use of transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) in parallel with peripheral nerve stimulation provides insight into the source of these central changes. The aims of this study were to determine the presence and magnitude of voluntary activation deficits, especially supraspinal deficits, after a mountain trail-running race and to determine whether this can be explained by simultaneous changes in… CONTINUE READING
