The soleus H-reflex excitability during gait initiation was investigated in Parkinson's disease. Eleven patients participated in this study. Patients stepped forward as soon as the start signal flashed. Soleus H-reflex was evoked from the trailing leg 100, 300, or 600 msec after the start signal. The electromyographic activity in the soleus muscle immediately before evoking the H-reflex and the ankle joint motion were recorded. The soleus H-reflex was inhibited 300 msec after the start signal… CONTINUE READING
