A model has been analyzed which is based on recent experimental evidence concerning the properties of muscles and the sensory feedback pathways from muscles. Damped oscillations can arise in the absence of sensory feedback due to the interaction of a muscle with inertial loads. These mechanical oscillations can have a wide range of frequencies depending on the inertial and elastic loads that are attached to the muscle. Small amounts of sensory feedback will tend to reduce deviations from a… CONTINUE READING
