Exercise-induced muscle pain
Rating of perceived exertion
Endurance exercise consisting of sustained whole-body dynamic exercise inevitably induces muscle fatigue, which leads to task failure. It is considered that the brain plays a key role during the regulation of endurance exercise performance. It is believed that exercise-induced muscle fatigue elicits a reduction in motor cortex excitability, spinal excitability, and the contractile capacity of the active muscle fibers. Therefore, an increased amount of descending drive from supraspinal regions is required to maintain task performance. Numerous investigations have conducted to identify the different method to decrease muscle fatigue during an endurance task. These studies have indicated that techniques that can increase motor cortex excitability could increase the time to task failure due to more efficient motor commands. Therefore, the main objective of this thesis was to investigate the ergogenic effect of transcranial direct current stimulation on endurance exercise performance in phy...
