Graduate school of Education, Chiba University. Faculty of Education, Chiba University. Eleven healthy subjects repetitively performed maximal cycling movement for 10 s with 20 s rest intervals. While performing each task, transcranial magnetic stimulation TMS was delivered to the motor cortex which was effectively able to evoke motor evoked potential MEP from the thigh muscles. The maximal power exerted was decreased to The number of repeated sets in each task was In both tasks, the duration of the MEP was progressively prolonged in each 10 sec pedaling, and the prolongation was evident in the latter half of the tasks.
However, the magnitude of the prolongation was significantly larger during the HP task. These results suggest that central fatigue plays a significant role in decreasing the maximum power output, and that it takes place in a muscle-dependent fashion.
It was also suggested that during low load, but relatively higher cadence frequency, central fatigue other than that involving the motor cortex accounts for the decreased power output.

Muscle fatigue: general understanding and treatment
In this and the subsequent companion paper, results are presented that collectively seek to delineate the contribution that supraspinal circuits have in determining the time to task failure TTF of sustained submaximal contractions. The purpose of this study was to compare adjustments in supraspinal and spinal excitability taken concurrently throughout the performance of two different fatigue tasks with identical mechanical demands but different TTF i. Single-pulse transcranial magnetic stimulation TMS , paired-pulse TMS, paired cortico-cervicomedullary stimulation, and brachial plexus electrical stimulation were delivered in a 6-stimuli sequence at baseline and every 2—3 minutes throughout fatigue-task performance. Together, these results suggest that as fatigue develops prior to task failure, the increase in corticospinal excitability observed in relationship to the decrease in spinal excitability results from a combination of decreasing intracortical inhibition with constant levels of intracortical facilitation and upstream excitability that together eventually fail to provide the input to the motor cortex necessary for descending drive to overcome the spinal cord resistance, thereby contributing to task failure.
Strenuous exercise leads to a progressive reduction in the performance of voluntary physical exercise. This is due to a process described as fatigue and is defined as the failure to maintain the required or expected power output. While some of this is muscular in origin, there are data suggestive of how fatigue is modulated by cortical signals, leading to a concept of central fatigue. We implemented a functional magnetic resonance imaging paradigm to effectively isolate brain areas responsible for central supraspinal fatigue following exercise. Our data identify a large cluster that includes dominant the anterior ventral premotor cortex aPMv , the insula and postcentral gyrus as critical nodes in the brain network where supraspinal fatigue might have their functional neural imprints.

We investigated the cross-over effect of muscle fatigue and its time course on the non-exercising contralateral limb NEL after unilateral fatiguing contractions of the ipsilateral exercising limb EL. For this purpose, 15 males performed two bouts of second maximal isometric knee extensions with the exercising limb, and neuromuscular function of both the EL and NEL was assessed before PRE , after a first fatiguing exercise MID and after a second fatiguing exercise POST. At MID, torque decline of the EL was strictly associated to an alteration of the mechanical twitch properties evoked by neurostimulation of the femoral nerve i. According to these markers, we suggest that peripheral fatigue occurred.

Muscle fatigue is an exercise-induced reduction in maximal voluntary muscle force. It may arise not only because of peripheral changes at the level of the muscle, but also because the central nervous system fails to drive the motoneurons adequately. Evidence for "central" fatigue and the neural mechanisms underlying it are reviewed, together with its terminology and the methods used to reveal it.
Supraspinal fatigue Fatigue produced by failure to generate output from the motor cortex; a subset of central fatigue. Task failure Cessation of a bout of exercise.
Fatigue pp Cite as. In reading this volume one should ask what is new and true, and what will lead to new approaches and insight. Clearly, as the topic muscle fatigue is increasingly studied by muscle physiologists, neuroscientists and clinicians, it becomes more difficult to summarize the state of knowledge, even in a volume with 36 chapters. Some of this progress has been summarized at recent symposia in Paris in Atlan et al. Despite this, we are far from having an equation that will predict the degree of fatigue under a variety of physiological circumstances, although some of the boundary conditions are becoming well established.

The origin of fatigue has been the focus of studies involved in sports performance, due to the necessity to clarify the mechanistic bases for the reduced capacity to perform considerable effort intensities. According to the traditional conception of fatigue, mechanisms may encompass peripheral and central sites of fatigue. Peripheral fatigue is understood as events related to an inefficient tissue oxygen delivery, metabolic accumulation, muscular acidosis and muscle substrate depletion.
