Following a cerebro-vascular accident, motor deficits are usually associated with a selective atrophy of fast fatiguable muscle fibers. The reduction of output torque in spastic patients is considered to be caused by unfused twitches resulting from the reduction in the motor unit firing rate. To regain control of a paretic limb, these patients have to learn… CONTINUE READING
