The Hoffmann (H) reflex and its facilitation produced by electrical stimulation of the sural area were examined before a ballistic extension of the right foot. Modulations of the cutaneous facilitation of the H reflex (CFH) were used to assess the control exerted over the transmission of low threshold cutaneous afferents. The time-course of H and CFH changes were investigated at the end of the foreperiod and during the premotor period, i.e. between the response signal and the onset of the… CONTINUE READING
