Although this may explain the suppression of H-reflexes during REM sleep, cataplexy and laughter, it is not the only explanation. Presynaptic inhibition, in(More)
The influence of duration and intensity of the initial level of vibration on vibration perception threshold was studied in 15 healthy young subjects (aged 27.9 +/- 7.6 years) with a Vibrameter (Somedic AB Sweden). The threshold for increasing vibration corresponded well to the normal values published by the manufacturer. The thresholds for decreasing(More)
