The recruitment curves of the monosynaptic Hoffmann (H) reflex and of the direct motor (M) excitation of alpha-motor fibers of the posterior popliteal nerve were studied in seven human subjects in normoxic and hypoxic conditions at sea level. The amplitude of the H and M responses were determined from the computerized full-wave rectified and integrated surface electromyographic (EMG) signal derived from bipolar surface electrodes placed over the soleus muscle. Hypoxic exposure [end-tidal O2… CONTINUE READING
