  • Background The main objective of this thesis was to establish new insight into the motor control of low-threshold motor units in the trapezius muscle. Special attention was given to motor unit recruitment threshold related to firing behavior. The extensive literature on motor control mainly concerns firing behavior of extremity muscles. Motor control of the upper trapezius shows features that indicate deviations from the control scheme generally assumed to apply to muscles of the extremities… CONTINUE READING
