SCHUTZ, Carlos G. et al. Muscular fatigue mechanisms in pyramidal lesions. Arq. Neuro-Psiquiatr. [online]. 1983, vol.41, n.3, pp.246-249. ISSN 0004-282X.

Muscular fatigue mechanisms were partially analyzed in patients with pyramidal lesions by using a computer device on line with a conventional electromyograph. Both the normal and the affected side were compared with control groups. The recordings were done throughout a ten minutes period and the maximal M wave was also measured at the starting and at the end of the procedure. The findings suggested that central events play a major role in the development of muscular fatigue in spastic muscles due to pyramidal damage.
