Abstract

•We measured self-sustained muscle activity of the triceps surae muscle.•Self-sustained muscle activity is generated by facilitation of plateau potentials in spinal motoneurons.•Self-sustained muscle activity was increased by CO2 rebreathing.•Motor neuromuscular activity in humans may be linked to the respiratory system, which is activated during hypercapnia.
