(a) (left). Composite MEPs (cMEP) that delineates the bioenergy obtained from the FDI muscle are rest. The waveforms that encircled the bioenergy showed a remarkable consistency among the discrete cMEPs elicited at MT (purple), MT+10 (yellow), MT+20 (aquamarine). Green horizontal bar: 100 milliseconds. (b) (right). Composite MEPs (cMEP) that delineates the bioenergy obtained from the activated FDI muscle. The waveforms that encircled the bioenergy computed during muscle contraction showed a remarkable consistency among the discrete cMEPs elicited at MT (Green), MT+10 (light blue), and MT+20 (light yellow). It should be noted that the mentioned consistency showed a trend different to the one extracted from the bioenergy computed while the FDI muscle was studied at rest. Blue horizontal line: 100 milliseconds.
