PURPOSE The aim of this study was to assess the relative power of genetic and environmental contribution to the variation observed in neuromuscular coordination. METHODS Using the twin model and comparing intrapair differences between monozygotic (MZ) and dizygotic (DZ) twins, we derived heritability estimates (h2). Forty healthy male twins, 10 MZ and 10 DZ pairs, aged 21.5 +/- 2.4 and 21 +/- 2.1 yr, respectively, performed a series of elbow flexions in one degree of freedom with different… CONTINUE READING
