Quantitative studies on the slowly adapting stretch receptor of the crayfish

  title={Quantitative studies on the slowly adapting stretch receptor of the crayfish},
  author={M. C. Brown and R. B. Stein},
In isolated receptors the impulse frequency following “step” stretches had a highly significant correlation with both muscle length and tension; any deviations from linearity were in opposite directions, impulse frequency rising more quickly than linearly with length and more slowly than linearly with tension. The impulse frequency decayed according to a power function of time from application of a step increase in length. A transfer function was derived and used to predict responses to… CONTINUE READING
