Reflex responses of the triceps surae and tibialis anterior muscles were recorded electro-myographically and mechanographically in healthy persons during elicitation of the tendon reflexes from these muscles. Elicitation of the tendon reflex from one muscle was found to be accompanied by simultaneous contraction of the antagonists of the ankle. It is suggested that monosynaptic connections of afferent fibers of the antagonist muscles of the leg play an important role in the mechanism of their… CONTINUE READING
