Systematic nonlinear relations between joint mechanics and the neural reflex response with changes in stretch amplitude at the wrist.

Abstract

The effects on both joint mechanics and the neural stretch reflex of changes in amplitude of stretch ranging from within the region of short range stiffness up to 3% of resting muscle length were quantified. The level of activation of the primary agonist was held constant but there was a small but systematic increase in activation of the other flexor and… (More)
