1. We previously reported that excitatory postsynaptic potentials (EPSPs) produced by low-threshold electrical stimulation of the caudal cutaneous sural nerve (CCS) occur preferentially and with the shortest central latencies in the medial gastrocnemius (MG) portion of the triceps surae motor nuclei. The present study employs the spatial facilitation technique to assess interneuronal convergence on the short-latency excitatory pathway from CCS to MG by several other ipsilateral hindlimb… CONTINUE READING
