1. It was previously shown that the controlled landing from single steps to the ground is typically brought about by accurately timed motor activity, commencing before the actual landing, and completed before time would permit the participation of a useful stretch reflex response.2. To investigate further the validity of this conclusion, subjects were dropped from an electromagnetic suspension at unexpected moments. Their gastrocnemius electromyographic (e.m.g.) responses and the forces applied… CONTINUE READING
