The purpose of this study was to characterize the neuromuscular control during shortening (SHO) and lengthening (LEN) contractions by investigating the input-output (I/O) property in the corticospinal tract. To this end, the relation between various stimulus intensities applied via transcranial magnetic stimulation and the size of motor evoked potentials was investigated in six healthy subjects during elbow flexion and extension. The measured I/O property demonstrates a sigmoidal shape, and is… CONTINUE READING
