Motoneurone excitability is rapidly and profoundly reduced during a sustained maximal voluntary contraction (MVC) when tested in the transient silent period which follows transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) of the motor cortex. One possible cause of this reduction in excitability is a fatigue-induced withdrawal of excitatory input to motoneurones from muscle spindle afferents. We aimed to test if muscle spindle input produced by tendon vibration would ameliorate suppression of the… CONTINUE READING
