Exercise-induced fatigue can change motor performance in non-exercised muscles. The objective was to investigate unilateral elbow flexion (EF) fatigue effects on the maximal voluntary force (MVC) and corticospinal excitability of contralateral non-exercised biceps brachii (BB). Transcranial magnetic, transmastoid electrical, and brachial plexus electrical stimulation were used to elicit motor evoked potentials (MEP), cervicomedullary motor evoked potentials (CMEP), and compound muscle action… CONTINUE READING
