Static muscular contraction has been firmly established to reflexly increase cardiovascular and ventilatory function. Although group III and IV fibers with endings in muscle have been shown to comprise the afferent arm of this reflex arc, little is known about the nature of the contraction-induced stimulus causing the activation of these fibers. This stimulus has often been suggested to be a metabolic product of muscular contraction. We have therefore recorded the impulse activity of group III… CONTINUE READING
