    • Effects of muscle fatigue on directional coordination of fingertip forces during precision grip

      https://journals.plos.org/plosone/ar...l.pone.0208740

      Muscle fatigue is manifested by exercised-induced transient reduction in the capacity of muscle to produce force. Limited contraction of muscle fibers [1, 2], reduced intensity of nerve signals [3], altered motor unit recruitment [4, 5], decreased maximal force production [2, 4] and increased force fluctuation [4, 6] are usually associated with muscle fatigue. An intriguing issue is how the muscle fatigue affects the motor coordination for goal-directed fine motor skills, such as grasping and manipulating an object.

      • Setting larger session duration goals is associated with greater future physical activity

        https://journals.plos.org/plosone/ar...l.pone.0208644

        Currently one third of American adults report no regular physical activity (PA) during their leisure time and less than half are meeting the current national guidelines for aerobic activity [1]. Low levels of moderate-to-vigorous physical activity (MVPA) among American adults constitute a major public health problem, in that participation in regular MVPA has significant health benefits including reduced risk of all-cause mortality [2, 3], cardiovascular disease [2, 3], diabetes [4], depression [5], osteoporosis [6], and cancers of the breast [7] and colon [8]. MVPA also enhances weight loss and has been shown to prevent weight regain [911].

        • Changes in spinal stiffness with chronic thoracic pain: Correlation with pain and muscle activity

          https://journals.plos.org/plosone/ar...l.pone.0208790

          The objective was to compare thoracic spinal stiffness between healthy participants and participants with chronic thoracic pain and to explore the associations between spinal stiffness, pain and muscle activity. The reliability of spinal stiffness was also evaluated.

              • Comparing Motor Control Exercise and General Exercise on Lumbo-Pelvic Stability of Chronic Nonspecific Low Back Pain Sufferers Using Endurance Stability Tests

                Conclusion
                Though it is claimed that MCE increases spinal stability, the lack of significant difference in the results of variables between the two groups may be due to our MCE not being specific for increasing spinal stability or equal effects of both interventions on increasing spinal stability and no preference of MCE. It may also be due to poor sensitivity of our outcome measures in detecting changes in spinal stability, especially with respect to the sample size. Based on these results, it could be concluded that MCE is not more effective than GE in improving endurance core stability tests and reducing disability and pain in chronic non-specific LBP patients.​​​​​​​

                    • Developmental 'awakening' of primary motor cortex to the sensory consequences of movement

                      https://elifesciences.org/articles/4...19-elife-alert

                      Before primary motor cortex (M1) develops its motor functions, it functions like a somatosensory area. Here, by recording from neurons in the forelimb representation of M1 in postnatal day (P) 8–12 rats, we demonstrate a rapid shift in its sensory responses. At P8-10, M1 neurons respond overwhelmingly to feedback from sleep-related twitches of the forelimb, but the same neurons do not respond to wake-related movements. By P12, M1 neurons suddenly respond to wake movements, a transition that results from opening the sensory gate in the external cuneate nucleus. Also at P12, fewer M1 neurons respond to individual twitches, but the full complement of twitch-related feedback observed at P8 is unmasked through local disinhibition. Finally, through P12, M1 sensory responses originate in the deep thalamorecipient layers, not primary somatosensory cortex. These findings demonstrate that M1 initially establishes a sensory framework upon which its later-emerging role in motor control is built.

                      • Exercise-induced hypoalgesia: A meta-analysis of exercise dosing for the treatment of chronic pain

                        https://journals.plos.org/plosone/ar...l.pone.0210418

                        Recent estimates claim that chronic pain affects 1.5 billion people worldwide, and these figures are steadily on the rise[1]. In the U.S., chronic pain is thought to affect over 116 million adults[1]; more than diabetes, cancer, and heart disease combined[2]. As a result, chronic pain remains a pervasive medical problem consuming a vast amount of health care resources. In European countries, national healthcare and socioeconomic costs associated with chronic pain total billions of dollars a year[35], whereas treatment costs in the U.S. can accrue up to $635 billion dollars annually[2], imposing a substantial economic burden on healthcare systems and society.

                        Increasing evidence cites exercise as an accessible, cost-effective, and viable therapeutic modality for the treatment of nearly all types of chronic pain conditions[617]. Regular physical activity and exercise improve many aspects of a person’s general health, including cardiorespiratory function, mental health, and pain[18, 19]. In general terms, physical activity can include various tasks of daily living, such as work, mobility, leisure, and recreational activities. These are activities that require musculoskeletal activity and energy expenditure. More specifically, exercise is a subset of physical activity, and is defined as structured activity with a goal of improving physical performance and/or health[20].
