While motor control is very often a goal-oriented event, little is known about the mechanisms underlying the termination of motor performance. To investigate what type of cortical activation underlies the muscle relaxation required to terminate the act, we performed single- and double-pulse transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) studies during voluntary muscle relaxation in nine normal volunteers. Subjects maintained a weak isometric contraction of the right first dorsal interosseous muscle… CONTINUE READING
