The discharge properties of single motor units in the short extensors of the toes were studied during normal locomotion using electromyographic recordings which permitted the identification of single motor unit potentials. The single motor units were recruited in the same order during slowly increasing speed of locomotion as they were during slowly increasing voluntary tension, i.e. motor units with low axonal conduction velocity were recruited before motor units with higher conduction velocity… CONTINUE READING
