Abstract
Muscle force development is influenced by both central (pre-motor end plate) and peripheral (post-motor end plate) components. Conflicting results are available concerning gender-related differences in the central component. This study compared males and females with regard to the following electro-mechanical response variables: total reaction time, pre-motor time, electro-mechanical delay, and the rate of force development during a maximal voluntary isometric contraction (MVC) of the elbow flexors.
