The present study was designed to examine the effects of median nerve stimulation on motoneurones of remote muscles in healthy subjects using H-reflex, averaged EMG and PSTH methods. Stimulation of the median nerve induced facilitation of soleus H-reflex from about 50 ms and it reached a peak at about 100 ms of conditioning-test interval. Afferents that induced the facilitation consisted of at least two types of fibres, the high-threshold cutaneous fibres and the low-threshold fibres. When the… CONTINUE READING
