Head and body positions affect thermoregulatory tonus in deltoid muscles.

Abstract

Electromyograms (EMGs) were recorded from both deltoid muscles (DMs) when subjects were sitting, standing, and bending the head laterally at different cold sensations to clarify the role of head and body positions in the thermoregulatory tonus. At room temperature (22 degrees C), neither EMG related to thermoregulatory muscle tonus (TMT) nor were changes in… (More)
