A model for the soleus stretch reflex in the decerebrate cat was synthesized from models of the neural and muscular components, including the two proprioceptors (the muscle spindle and Golgi tendon organ) and their associated afferents (Ia, II, and Ib), the α motoneuron pool with its reflex pathways, the branches of the α motoneurons to the intrafusal… CONTINUE READING
