Corticomuscular coherence in agonist and antagonist muscles

The general purpose of this study is to learn more about brain and thigh muscle communication. We know that when you move, your muscles work together in pairs, like a team. This helps you stay balanced and move smoothly. The study wants to look closely at how the brain controls these muscle pairs. By understanding this better, we hope to help people who have been injured, like hurting their knee, by finding ways to improve their recovery.
