A reduction in maximal force production is a common observation in older individuals. In an effort to determine whether aging is accompanied by reductions in central motoneuron drive limiting motor performance, motor unit discharge records were obtained from seven young (21-33 yr) and seven older (> 67 yr) adults. Informed consent was obtained from all… CONTINUE READING
