OBJECTIVE Data on whether motor imagery (MI) modulates spinal excitability are equivocal. The purpose of this study was to determine if imagined muscle contractions of the left plantar flexor (PF) alter spinal excitability, and if so, to determine whether this alteration is intensity dependent and/or localized to the target muscles. Our research questions required two experiments. METHODS In experiment 1, 16 healthy volunteers performed imagined muscle contractions using a kinesthetic… CONTINUE READING
