1. A characteristic plateau pattern was observed in the rate of afferent discharges during ramp-and-hold stretch of spindles isolated from semitendinosus muscles of frogs. The plateau pattern was more frequent in summer frogs (84%) than winter frogs (11%). 2. The plateau pattern consisted of a discharge rate around 120 imp/s at the end of dynamic stretch, followed by second and third steps of plateau rates around 60 and 40 imp/s, respectively. The intervals of impulses in lower steps were… CONTINUE READING
