We compared the occurrence patterns of movement-related cortical potentials (MRCPs) preceding wrist extension in athletes (kendoists and gymnasts) and non-athletes. The MRCPs of the non-athletes started approximately 1.5 s before the EMG onset of wrist extension. In the athletes, the duration of the MRCPs was shorter and the amplitudes of early component (Bereitschaftspotential) were smaller than in the non-athletes. The MRCPs in the athletes started approximately 400 ms before the onset of… CONTINUE READING
