Sartorius muscle afferents influence the amplitude and timing of flexor activity in walking decerebrate cats

Abstract

Recent investigations have demonstrated that afferent signals from hindlimb flexor muscles can strongly influence flexor burst activity during walking and during fictive locomotion in decerebrate cats. We have reported previously that modifying afferent feedback from the sartorius (Sart) muscles by assisting or resisting hip flexion has a marked effect on… (More)
