Muscle fatigue can be defined as exercise-induced decrease in the ability to produce force. It can originate at different levels of the motor pathway and is usually divided into central and peripheral components. Peripheral fatigue resides in the muscles themselves, while central fatigue originates at the central nervous system. In this project we aim to understand how prolonged exercise elicit muscle fatigue and how muscle fatigue influences sport performance. To study fatigue we use a combination of electrophysiological means, like high density surface electromyography and nerve electrical stimulation. In particular, we aim to understand how we can detect early sign of muscle fatigue from the analysis of surface electromyographical signals and how these variations are related to muscle performance.
