Fatigue post-stroke is a disabling and persistent symptom affecting many stroke survivors. Despite its high prevalence, the pathophysiology underlying this phenomenon remains obscure. The aim of the present study was to investigate the origins of neuromuscular fatigue post-stroke. Ten chronic stroke survivors and 10 controls sustained an isometric contraction at 30% of maximal voluntary contraction (MVC) with the ankle dorsiflexors. Motor evoked potential (MEP), cortical silent period (SP… CONTINUE READING
