Abstract

Muscle activation is usually reported to reduce the excitability of the inhibitory and facilitatory intracortical circuits tested in the SICI/ICF paradigm. The present work was to study these effects in more detail by examining how different levels of volitional contraction affect short interval intracortical inhibition (SICI) and short interval intracortical facilitation (SICF) evaluated with a range of stimulus intensities.
