The relationship between motor unit activity and a voluntarily produced, sinusoidally modulated isometric tension was evaluated as a function of the modulation frequency. These date are reported in terms of the gain and phase difference of the motor activity (input) and tension (output) relationship, the gain being the logarithmic ratio of the amplitudes of the output and input sinusoids. It was found that an increase in the modulation amplitude of the motor unit activity was required to… CONTINUE READING
