Abstract

The present results indicated a strict parallelism between motor execution (the reduction of electromyography during mvc after immobilization) and motor imagery (the reduction of MEP-amps after immobilization). This parallelism suggests that a functional reorganization or decreased excitability in the cerebral cortex area involved in executing movement likely decreases the motor capability to produce voluntary muscular output after immobilization.
