Respiration, mastication, and locomotion are compared in terms of the contributions of events occurring at the motoneuron membrane and at premotoneuronal levels for the production of phasic gain changes of afferent effects. Data are presented which suggest that an inhibitory mechanism operating on limb motoneurons can prevent disruption of the locomotor… (More)
