1. Changes in the probability of firing of motor units active during voluntary muscle contraction have been studied in human first dorsal interosseous muscle in response to cutaneous afferent stimulation. 2. Electrical stimulation of the digital nerves of the index finger produces a reflex response consisting of three phases, early excitation followed by inhibition followed by late excitation. 3. Motor units recruited at low levels of voluntary contraction strength had larger early inhibitory… CONTINUE READING
