There is mounting evidence that human muscles have discrete partitions. In an effort to accurately assess how the control to each of the three heads (designated as A-C) of the lateral gastrocnemius (LG) muscle might be organized, we performed exploratory studies in five subjects each of whom was provided 30 random angular and linear perturbations while standing on a balance platform in each of three experiments. The responses from each LG head were recorded with strategically-placed fine-wire… CONTINUE READING
