1. The pattern of cutaneous inhibition of non-monosynaptic excitation (or 'propriospinal-like' excitation) to various species of motoneurones-wrist flexors and extensors, biceps and deltoid - was investigated in man. 2. Changes in the firing probability of individual voluntarily activated motor units were studied following various stimuli. The effects of weak cutaneous stimuli applied to the skin of either the palmar or the dorsal side of the fingers on propriospinal-like excitation evoked by… CONTINUE READING
