Sensory information from muscle is a major factor in the control of posture and movement. The central nervous system can greatly vary this proprioceptive feedback via the fusimotor (gamma) system that innervates the muscle spindle, a length receptor. Despite 50 years of intensive research, the role of the fusimotor system still remains controversial. One of the major reasons for this state of affairs is, because of technical difficulties, the complete lack of direct recordings from classified… CONTINUE READING
