Abstract

This paper investigates cortical responses to vibro-tactile stimuli. EEG was recorded in two conditions: when vibrations were applied focally on the muscle during relaxation and during muscle contraction. Mu and beta waves analysis of the EEG signals suggest that vibrations applied before the contraction increases the stretch of the muscle, thus improving its output performance. Further analysis of the vibrations applied during the muscle contraction shows cortical activation while modulating vibro-tactile stimuli to stabilise muscle performance.
