Objective: Develop a realistic model of muscle force generation that incorporates physiologically-based properties of motor unit control.

The model replicated the increase in motor unit firing rates and the recruitment of additional higher amplitude motor units that is known to occur in order to sustain a given task as fatigue develops, and shed light of the neural mechanisms of force control.

The ability to extend such studies to dynamic activities opens the door to investigating the control of human movement during functional unconstrained tasks.
