Plastic neural changes have been documented in relation to different types of physical activity, but little is known about central nervous system plasticity accompanying reduced physical activity and immobilization. In the present study we investigated whether plastic neural changes occur in relation to 1 wk of immobilization of the nondominant wrist and hand and a corresponding period of recovery in 10 able-bodied volunteers. After immobilization, maximal voluntary contraction torque decreased… CONTINUE READING
