Special issue in Fatigue Role in Modulating Motor Skills and Muscular Responses


This editorial beckons readers to the intricate relationship between fatigue and motor control skills. This theme is explored in the ensuing special issue through the lens of esteemed researchers in the field. The articles within this issue provide a comprehensive and insightful analysis of how fatigue acts as a silent saboteur, subtly undermining the efficiency and efficacy of motor responses and skills. Through a tapestry of carefully conducted studies and thought-provoking findings, contributors shed light on how fatigue insidiously affects neuromuscular responses, from altering muscle activation during specific tasks to influencing the onset of muscle soreness. This special issue, therefore, serves as a launching pad for a much-needed research agenda. It invites scholars and practitioners alike to engage with and further investigate the relationship between fatigue and motor control skills, thereby contributing to our growing understanding and knowledge of this area.
