1. The responses of the first dorsal interosseus (1DI), opponens pollicis (OP), extensor digitorum communis (EDC), brachioradialis (BR), biceps brachii (BB) and anterior deltoid (AD) muscles to magnetic stimulation of the motor cortex were recorded during different motor tasks. 2. Two precision and two power isometric tasks were investigated. The precision tasks were a pincer grip ('grip') and a thrust against a target with the wrist ('push'). In the former, the prime movers were the intrinsic… CONTINUE READING
