Previous studies have revealed the influence of ongoing sensory discharge on modulating the central representation of muscle afferents from individual limbs. In the present study, we explored the potential for such modulatory influence on the afferent discharge arising from induced whole-body movement. Vestibular and somatosensory inputs arise from such whole-body movement. The convergence of these two modalities is important in motor control, especially for the maintenance of postural… CONTINUE READING
