The aim of this study was to examine whether the changes of the motor cortex excitability induced by muscle fatigue could be affected by prior or subsequent intervention protocol supposed to induce opposing excitability changes. For this purpose we used paired associative stimulation (PAS) method, where peripheral nerve stimuli were associated with transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) of the motor cortex at a fixed interstimulus interval of 25 ms. The PAS protocol used is known to produce a… CONTINUE READING
