Analysis of the control of movement in tasks such as stepping is severely restricted by the lack of quantitative data on the ensemble activity of afferents in the numerous muscles involved. We have started to build up a quantitative "look-up-chart" of the ensemble afferent and efferent profiles in the cat step cycle. To this end, we have developed software which allows us to digitize afferent firing, muscle length and electromyogram (EMG) activity, and to align segments for averaging by… CONTINUE READING
