1. In order to establish the afferent source responsible for the M1 and M2 stretch reflex components of the voluntarily activated human triceps surae muscle, mechanical reflex testing was applied before and during ischaemic blockade of the lower limb. This procedure is known to affect large, fast conducting afferent fibres earliest, specifically Ia afferents arising from muscle spindle afferents. 2. It was found that both the M1 and M2 components were eliminated at the same time, at a point… CONTINUE READING
