Simultaneous recordings were made from gamma (gamma) motor axons and from muscle spindle afferents of the medial gastrocnemius (MG) muscle during locomotion in decerebrate cats. The gamma-neurons were identified as static or dynamic (gammas or gammad) by correlating their behaviour during midbrain stimulation with changes in muscle spindle afferent responses to muscle stretch. On the basis of their behaviour during locomotion, gammas neurons could be divided into two groups. One group (type-1… CONTINUE READING
