1. A cat preparation was used to study the modulation of stretch reflexes during locomotion. The brain stem was transected and locomotion was induced by electrical stimulation of the mesencephalic locomotor region below the level of transection. Three legs walked normally on a treadmill, while the fourth leg, which was denervated except for the soleus muscle, was held fixed. Brief length perturbations were applied to the soleus muscle at various phases of the stepping cycle.2. The stretch… CONTINUE READING
