Sandra J. Shultz and Randy J. Schmitz

a task-based fMRI study incorporating intermittent knee flexion–extension exercise, ACL-deficient patients demonstrated lesser activation of the presupplementary motor area, posterior secondary somatosensory area, and posteroinferior temporal gyrus than controls ( Kapreli et al., 2009 ). Using the
