Neuromuscular and Cognitive Fatigue During a 24 Hour Treadmill Running Exercise
Neuromuscular and Cognitive Fatigue During a 24h Treadmill Running Exercise.

The main purpose of the present study is to determine the relative contributions of central and peripheral fatigue during an ultra-endurance exercise.

For that purpose, 14 subjects running 24 hours on a treadmill will be compared with a control group being awake during the same period. Subjects who running will have electrically evoked forces on the muscles associated EMG activity, blood samples and muscle biopsy.
