Fusimotor activation induced by thermal stimuli to the skin was investigated by recording the stretch responses of primary as well as secondary spindle afferent fibers from the tibialis anterior of the barbiturate-anesthetized, spinal cats. A standard ramp-and-hold stretch was repeatedly given during warming or cooling (20 to 40 degrees C) the skin of the ipsilateral foot pads. In each response of the spindle afferent fiber to stretch, the peak (P) and static firing rates (S) were measured and… CONTINUE READING
