Hysteresis in corticospinal excitability during gradual muscle contraction and relaxation in humans


Many studies have demonstrated that the firing behavior of single motor units varies in a nonlinear manner to the exerted torque during gradual muscle contraction and relaxation. However, it is unclear whether corticospinal excitability has such a hysteresis-like feature. In this study, we examined corticospinal excitability using transcranial magnetic… (More)
