Exercising in an environment where the oxygen supply is limited has been shown to decrease exercise performance, but the causes of this impairment continue to be debated. Traditionally it was believed that low levels of inspired oxygen directly impaired the muscle’s ability to contract. Recently however, the central nervous system (brain) has been shown to influence the intensity at which one chooses to exercise when inspired oxygen levels are low. Therefore the purpose of this study is to clarify the role of the nervous system in the fatigue process when oxygen availability is limited.
