The discharge properties on maintained maximal voluntary effort, axonal conduction velocity (a.c.v.) and contraction time (c.t.) of single human motor units were studied. Electromyographic (EMG) techniques were used and sufficient selectivity was obtained after repeated lesions to the terminal nerve twigs and consequent collateral sprouting, or by blocking the main muscle nerve in subjects with an accessory nerve supplying just one or a few units, or using high impedance wire electrodes.
