Evidence is presented for the existence of synchrony between the spike trains of muscle afferents of the passive cat medial gastrocnemius muscle held at fixed length. Synchrony between the spike trains of a population of muscle afferents was quantified by means of a synchronization index (Is), derived from spike-triggered averages of the muscle-nerve neurogram and the rectified neurogram. A previously used test based solely upon the neurogram average (Watt, Stauffer, Taylor, Reinking & Stuart… CONTINUE READING
