In this paper we analyze the role of corticomuscular transmission for the time-varying force control. Corticospinal coherence is assessed during frequency-modulated isometric ankle dorsiflexions. Our preliminary results show a significant coupling between EEG signals and motor unit spike trains at the target frequency, suggesting that low-frequency cortical oscillations may have an important functional role in force control.
