Central fatigue refers to circumstances in which strength appears to be limited by the ability of the central nervous system to recruit motoneurons. Central fatigue manifests when the effort to contract skeletal muscles is intense and, thus, is aggravated when exercise is performed under stress, whereas it becomes attenuated following training. Central fatigue has not been explained, but the cerebral metabolic response to intense exercise, as to other modalities of cerebral activation, is a… Expand
Effects of Endurance Exercise on Cerebral and Muscle Oxygenation
It has been suggested that during exhaustive exercise both a central and peripheral mechanism of fatigue exists. Indeed, a central debate in the exercise science literature is the nature of fatigueExpand
Cortical Substrate of Supraspinal Fatigue following Exhaustive Aerobic Exercise Localizes to a Large Cluster in the Anterior Premotor Cortex
TLDR
Findings here show that activity in the ipsilateral aPMv and the adjacent areas in the premotor cortex correlates with both localized fatigue (fatigue specific hand grip contraction), and generalized full body exhaustive fatigue. Expand
Exercising with reserve: evidence that the central nervous system regulates prolonged exercise performance
TLDR
The ingestion of a centrally acting stimulant allowed subjects to exercise for longer at higher cardiorespiratory and metabolic stress indicating the presence of a muscular reserve in the natural state, suggesting that endurance performance is not only “limited” by mechanical failure of the exercising muscles. Expand
How does isometric exercise affect the haemodynamics of the brain?
TLDR
Haemodynamic changes during isometric exercise have been shown and brain oxygenation in the prefrontal cortex increased during exercise in all positions, according to the fNIRS results. Expand
Cortical Reorganization in Response to Exercise
Abstract While there are clear effects of exercise on brain activity measured subsequent to the bout of physical activity, it is also important to elucidate the nature of the changes that occur inExpand
Possible use of repeated cold stress for reducing fatigue in chronic fatigue syndrome: a hypothesis
TLDR
It is hypothesized that repeated cold stress may reduce fatigue in chronic fatigue syndrome because brief exposure to cold may transiently reverse some physiological changes associated with this illness. Expand
Acute effects of sustained isometric knee extension on cerebral and muscle oxygenation responses
TLDR
It is likely that depletion of intramuscular stores of high energy phosphates and oxymyoglobin, as well as the accumulation of metabolites from anaerobic pathways, were implicated in fatigue during this sustained high intensity isometric contraction. Expand
The cerebral metabolic ratio is not affected by oxygen availability during maximal exercise in humans
TLDR
During maximal rowing, the cerebral metabolic ratio reaches the lowest value with no effect by a moderate change in the arterial O2 content, suggesting that intense whole body exercise is associated with marked imbalance in the cerebral metabolism substrate preferences independent of oxygen availability.

Hypoxia and exercise provoke both lactate release and lactate oxidation by the human brain

  • 2012
TLDR
The results support the existence of a cell‐cell lactate shuttle that may involve neurons and astrocytes and demonstrate that lactate oxidation may account for up to ∼33% of the energy substrate used by the brain. Expand

Cerebral perturbations provoked by prolonged exercise
TLDR
Extended exercise may induce homeostatic disturbances within the central nervous system (CNS) that subsequently attenuates motor activation, and strenuous exercise is a challenge not only to the cardiorespiratory and locomotive systems but also to the brain. Expand

TLDR
It is suggested that a low MR predicts shortage of energy that ultimately limits motor activation and reflects a biologic background for ‘central fatigue’. Expand
Cerebral carbohydrate cost of physical exertion in humans.
TLDR
Exhaustive exercise involves a brain surplus carbohydrate uptake of a magnitude comparable with its glycogen content and this study quantified such surplus brain uptake of carbohydrate relative to O(2) in eight healthy males who performed exhaustive exercise. Expand
A reduced cerebral metabolic ratio in exercise reflects metabolism and not accumulation of lactate within the human brain
TLDR
The finding that an increase in lactate could not be detected in the CSF or within the brain rules out accumulation in a distribution volume and indicates that the lactate taken up by the brain is metabolized. Expand

TLDR
It is demonstrated, that patellar reflexes are brisker when the eyes are open than when they are closed, and the recuperative effect of “diverting activity” is consequently explained as being due to an increased facilitation of the neuro-motor system. Expand
Neurohumoral responses during prolonged exercise in humans.
TLDR
The present findings indicate that the brain has an increased need for carbohydrates during recovery from strenuous exercise, whereas enhanced perception of effort as observed during exercise with hyperthermia was not related to alterations in the cerebral balances of dopamine or tryptophan. Expand
Cerebral ammonia uptake and accumulation during prolonged exercise in humans
TLDR
The results let us suggest that during prolonged exercise the cerebral uptake and accumulation of ammonia may provoke fatigue, e.g. by affecting neurotransmitter metabolism. Expand
Fatigue in neurological disorders
TLDR
A state of pre-existing relative hypocortisolaemia might sensitise the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis to development of persistent central fatigue after stress. Expand
The intent to exercise influences the cerebral O2/carbohydrate uptake ratio in humans
TLDR
The results indicate that glucose and lactate uptake by the brain are increased out of proportion to O2 when the brain is activated by exhaustive exercise, and that such metabolic changes are influenced by the will to exercise. Expand

TLDR
Measurements confirm earlier reports that brain activation can induce resetting of the cerebral oxygen/glucose consumption ratio, and indicate that the resetting persists for a long period after cerebral activation has been terminated and physiologic stress indicators returned to baseline values.
