Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) and peripheral nerve stimulation (PNS) are methods commonly used in combination to assess plasticity of the central and peripheral nervous systems, respectively. Despite the continuous fluctuations within the central nervous system, studies using TMS and PNS have reported reliable cortical and spinal responses during isometric contractions. Plastic changes rapidly occur, even after one practice session (Selvanayagam et al., 2011), thus, it is critical to assess the stability of such measures during dynamic contractions.
