1. The objective of this study was to evaluate the action of the stretch reflex on the ankle extensor muscles of normal and decerebrate cats. 2. Experiments were performed on nine freely standing, unrestrained cats and repeated after decerebration at the premammillary level. The length, force, and electromyograph (EMG) of the soleus (SOL) and lateral gastrocnemius (LG) muscles were recorded with the use of implanted transducers and electrodes. 3. The left ankle joint was unexpectedly and… CONTINUE READING
