This paper describes a new method that uses the frequency of firing of motor units to estimate the stimulus-induced net post-synaptic potential (PSP) and the synaptic noise in the membrane of voluntarily active human motoneurons. Unlike the peri-stimulus time histogram (PSTH) which is the most commonly used method for assessing stimulus-induced synaptic potentials in human motoneurones, this new approach overcomes contamination of the results caused by the synchronizing effect of the stimulus… CONTINUE READING
