The reflex responses evoked by controlled mechanical stimulation of an upper central incisor tooth in single motor units in the human masseter muscle were examined. The stimuli were (brisk) taps and (slow) pushes of about 2 N peak force, applied orthogonally to the labial surface of the ipsilateral upper central incisor tooth. The reflex responses of the motor units were characterised by analysis of the changes in the durations of the first and second interspike intervals (ISIs) immediately… CONTINUE READING
