AMPLIFICATION OF MOTOR NEURON FUNCTION

Greater the Force Production = Greater Motor Neuron Activation
The “Henneman size principle” (1965) is a widely accepted law in neurology dictating the order in which muscle fibers are recruited. As movement of the body demands greater force, more motor neuron activation occurs calling muscle fibers to action. The activation moves from small motor units to larger motor units as more force is called upon.
