Human group I excitatory projections from ankle dorsiflexors to quadriceps muscle.


A short latency projection of group I afferent fibers from ankle dorsiflexors to knee extensor muscles has been categorized as species specific to humans. However, the effects of the pathway have only been inferred from conditioning homonymous reflexes in relaxed muscle. This study focused directly on the responses evoked in the electromyogram of the… (More)
