  • Recurrent inhibition in the spinal cord has been suggested to serve as a variable gain regulator to allow for optimal muscle force control, to influence alpha-motoneuron firing rate, and to contribute to task related motor synergies between muscles at the same or different joints. The purpose of this study was to examine the resting recurrent inhibition levels in the soleus motoneuron pool of 20 elderly and 21 young adult subjects. To assess recurrent inhibition, a conditioning electrical… CONTINUE READING
