Muscle fatigue can be caused by a number of different mechanisms that result in an acute reduction in the ability to perform a motor task. These mechanisms include the physiological processes that range from the motivation associated with performing the task through to the force exerted by the contractile proteins once they are activated. Two issues are examined in this brief review. First, the role of mechanisms located in the central nervous system (central factors) in the fatigue experienced… CONTINUE READING
