Fusimotor reflexes in triceps surae muscle elicited by stretch of muscles in the contralateral hind limb of the cat.

Experiments were performed on twenty-one cats anaesthetized with alpha-chloralose. The aim of this study was to investigate the reflex effects on triceps surae and plantaris fusimotor neurones elicited by tonic stretch of the contralateral posterior biceps and semitendinosus (p.b.s.t.) and the contralateral triceps surae and plantaris muscles, to compare… CONTINUE READING
