The purpose of this study was to determine whether cessation of motor unit discharge contributes to fatigue in human subjects. Multiple fine-wire and tungsten microelectrodes were inserted into the extensor digitorum or extensor indicis muscles of the forearm in an attempt to record the activity of the same motor unit from different locations within either muscle while subjects maintained a maximal voluntary contraction of the finger extensors until force dropped by approximately 50%.
