A mathematical multipath model of the flow of information within the afferent limb of the myotatic stretch reflex is reviewed and evaluated, with emphasis being placed on its multi-channel structure. The system is simulated, and the resultant output (alpha motoneuron transmembrane potential) is analyzed spectrally, with one single-tone input (muscle stretch) and a set of variations of different system parameters: (i) When all the channels are identical, the characteristics of the input signal… CONTINUE READING
