Motor unit rate coding is severely impaired during forceful and fast muscular contractions in individuals post stroke.

Abstract

Information regarding how motor units are controlled to produce forces in individuals with stroke and the mechanisms behind muscle weakness and movement slowness can potentially inform rehabilitation strategies. The purpose of this study was to describe the rate coding mechanism in individuals poststroke during both constant (n = 8) and rapid (n = 4) force… (More)
