Exp Physiol. 2017 Nov 01;102(11):1513-1523 Authors: Doguet V, Nosaka K, Guével A, Thickbroom G, Ishimura K, Jubeau M Abstract NEW FINDINGS: What is the central question of this study? Does sensory input from peripheral mechanoreceptors determine the specific neural control of eccentric contractions? How corticospinal excitability (i.e. muscle responses to motor cortex stimulation) is affected by muscle length has never been investigated during eccentric contractions. What is the main finding and its importance? Muscle length does not influence corticospinal excitability during ... read more
