Influence of contralateral finger motions on ipsilateral finger extension was analyzed in order to explore optimal condition of bilateral motions as a facilitation technique, measuring motor times (MTs) of finger extensor muscles in four conditions; homonymous or non-homonymous as for muscle coupling and simultaneous or successive as for timing of motion-initiation. Compared to unilateral motion, MTs shortened only in bilateral motion with preceding sustained contractions of the contralateral… CONTINUE READING
