SINGLE MOTOR UNIT

We strive to understand how the nervous system controls the motor units within a muscle so as to generate smooth and precise changes in overall muscle force. We also investigate the intrinsic properties of the motor neurons that innervate relevant muscle fiber populations in providing such control.

Altered motor unit discharge patterns in paretic muscles of stroke survivors assessed using surface electromyography.

Our results provide strong evidence of disruptions in MU firing behavior in paretic muscles after a hemispheric stroke, suggesting that modified control of the spinal motoneuron pool could be a contributing factor to muscular weakness in stroke survivors.
