To understand the neural factors which contribute to fatigue, it is not satisfactory to regard fatigue as occurring only when a task can no longer be performed. Changes in muscle afferent feedback, motoneuronal discharge, motor cortical output, and perceived effort develop well before an endurance limit in limb muscles. During sustained maximal contractions the discharge of motoneurones declines, commonly to below the level required to produce maximal force from the muscle whose contractile… CONTINUE READING
