[Somatosensory evoked potentials during long-term isometric muscle contraction].

[Article in Russian]


The effect of sustained isometric contraction on somatosensory evoked potentials (SEPs) was studied. An attenuation of early SEP components N20--P30, P30--N35) was observed during the last minute of the endurance time. The late components (P45--N55, N55--P100) showed a significant increase of the amplitude during the first minute of the contraction. The amplitude of N35--P45 did not change during voluntary contraction, although it was decreased immediately after the contraction. An increase of the integrated EMG of forearm flexors was observed in the last minute of the endurance time. The maximal voluntary contraction was decreased immediately after the sustained contraction. The observed changes in SEPs could be attributed to possible changes in sensory information and motor command due to motor task.
