Presynaptic inhibition of Ia terminals and postactivation depression at the Ia fibre-motor neuron (MN) synapses were compared in the upper and lower limbs of both sides in subjects from different populations: 49 spastic patients with hemiplegia [mainly with a lesion in the middle cerebral artery (MCA) area], two tetraplegics and 35 healthy subjects. Presynaptic inhibition was assessed using D1 inhibition of the soleus and the flexor carpi radialis (FCR) H reflexes elicited by electrical stimuli… CONTINUE READING
