At high-altitude, Lowlanders exhibit exacerbated fatigue and impaired performance. Conversely, Sherpa (native Highlanders) are known for their outstanding performance at altitude. Presently, there are no reports comparing neuromuscular fatigue and its etiology between Lowlanders and native Sherpa at altitude.

The University of British Columbia Nepal Expedition took place over several months in the fall of 2016 and was comprised of an international team of 37 researchers. This paper describes the objectives...
Repetitive electrically-evoked muscle contraction leads to accelerated muscle fatigue. This study assessed electrically-evoked fatiguing muscle with changes to mechanomyography root mean square percen...
Investigation of muscle fatigue during functional electrical stimulation (FES)-evoked exercise in individuals with spinal cord injury using dynamometry has limited capability to characterize the fatig...
Remarkably, the central auditory system can modify the strength of its sound-evoked neural response based on prior acoustic experiences, a phenomenon referred to as central gain. Gain changes are well...
The acute responses to resistance training (RT) between males and females are poorly understood, especially from a neural perspective. Therefore, we aimed to compare the corticospinal and intracortica...
While the scientific community understands quite well why muscles ache after prolonged exercise, the origins of mental fatigue remain totally mysterious. Existing theories remain at a psyc...
The bioelectrical responses of muscle, evoked by sound, obtained with a device considered the gold standard (widely used in clinics and hospitals) are similar to those obtained with a new ...
To describe laryngeal and respiratory reflex responses after controlled laryngeal stimulation in pediatric patients anesthetized with sevoflurane and to compare the evoked responses at two...
This study evaluates auditory neural maturation by auditory brainstem evoked response in late preterm and term infants with in utero iron deficiency compared with neonates with normal in u...
In order to be able to study the effects of evoked fields with magnetoencephalography (MEG) in two groups of patients, comparison is made with a group of healthy volunteers.
The recorded electrical responses from nerve, muscle, SENSORY RECEPTOR, or area of the CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM following stimulation. They range from less than a microvolt to several microvolts. The evoked potential can be auditory (EVOKED POTENTIALS, AUDITORY), somatosensory (EVOKED POTENTIALS, SOMATOSENSORY), visual (EVOKED POTENTIALS, VISUAL), or motor (EVOKED POTENTIALS, MOTOR), or other modalities that have been reported. Often used synonymously to event-related potentials which are associated with higher level cognitive processes.
The electric response evoked in the CEREBRAL CORTEX by stimulation along AFFERENT PATHWAYS from PERIPHERAL NERVES to CEREBRUM.
Recorded electrical responses from muscles, especially the neck muscles or muscles around the eyes, following stimulation of the EAR VESTIBULE.
An early embryonic developmental process of CHORDATES that is characterized by morphogenic movements of ECTODERM resulting in the formation of the NEURAL PLATE; the NEURAL CREST; and the NEURAL TUBE. Improper closure of the NEURAL GROOVE results in congenital NEURAL TUBE DEFECTS.
The electric response evoked in the CEREBRAL CORTEX by ACOUSTIC STIMULATION or stimulation of the AUDITORY PATHWAYS.
