The role of force feedback during gait is still a matter of debate. From work on cats, it is known that input from Golgi tendon organs from triceps surae does produce Ib facilitation during locomotion instead of autogenic inhibition. In humans, Stephens and Yang (Stephens, M.J., Yang, J.F., 1996. Short latency, non-reciprocal group I inhibition is reduced during the stance phase of walking in humans. Brain Res. 743, 24-31) found that voluntary contraction results in a reduction of Ib inhibition… CONTINUE READING
