1. Single motor unit activity was investigated in the extensor carpi radialis muscles during voluntary isometric contraction involving either the coactivation of the wrist agonist extensor muscles (wrist extension) or the coactivation of the wrist and finger antagonist extensor and flexor muscles (hand clenching). 2. The motor units were found to be activated at a similar level of motoneurone pool drive during both wrist extension and hand clenching, as indicated by the fact that the EMG… CONTINUE READING
