Among the hypotheses regarding fusimotor functions based on earlier animal experiments some are inconsistent, others are in conformity with microneurographic observations in man. The human data provide evidence against the following two theories: (1) the length follow-up servo theory; and (2) the theory that fusimotor neurons can be selectively activated to produce spindle sensitization and stretch reflex reinforcements. The human data support the theory of alpha-gamma coactivation. In… CONTINUE READING
