Although these changes have been investigated using global indices of motor unit (MU) activation, alterations at th e level of the single motor unit have not yet been examined.||Type of material:||Conference Publication||Keywords:||Personal sensing||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed||Conference Details:||XXI Congress of the International Society of Electrophysiology and Kinesiology (ISEK), Chicago, Illinois, United States of America, 05-08 July 2016|
