Reports of facilitation of lower limb synergists through afferent stimulation in resting humans lead to study of short latency reflex responses during activity of the legs. Four synergistic muscles of the right leg were examined following electrical stimulation of low threshold afferents of the posterior tibial (PTN) and femoral (FN) nerves. Four males cycled on an ergometer with pedals modified to measure the force applied. Movement frequency was 0.8 Hz with 15 N ergometer resistance for two 6… CONTINUE READING
