Changes in amplitude of the soleus H (S(H))-reflex and its neurographic correlates (P(1) and P(2) waves) after vibration of the soleus muscle have been evaluated as a function of mechanical stimulation frequency, duration of the conditioning train, and test stimulus intensity. Additional experiments aimed at assessing the nervous system mechanisms underlying the postvibration depression (PVD) have been performed. In particular, homonymous (S(HMR) or S(H)) versus heteronymous (S(HTR)) soleus… CONTINUE READING
