Discharges of jaw muscle spindles were recorded during chewing carrot from mesencephalic trigeminal nucleus (Mes V) in the awake rabbit to evaluate contribution of the muscle spindles to the development of complete sequences of masticatory movements. The Mes V spindle units were divided into two types according to the maximum firing rates during mastication, with a dividing line at 200 Hz; high-frequency units and low-frequency units. Although both types of units fired maximally during the jaw… CONTINUE READING
