Following fatigue, and in the absence of rTMS, there was no relationship between intracortical facilitation and sense of force using the first (a1;C) or second(a3; A) rate constants of the sense of effort contraction however a strong relationship developed following high frequency rTMS of the supplementary motor area (B&D). Sense of force is displayed on the y axes using either the inverse of the first (a1) or second (a3) rate constants of the sense of effort contraction where a lower value represents increased rate of decline and greater sense of force. Intracortical facilitation is displayed on the x axis as the ratio between conditioned MEP and unconditioned MEP.
