Abstract:

Cross-correlation techniques were applied to an analysis of the afferent and efferent nerve traffic associated with the ankle jerk reflex. Primary afferent, secondary afferent and Golgi tendon fiber activity could be detected and monitored and the time course of their activity is shown. The alpha efferent activity could be monitored also and is displayed. The technique was not adequate to show the time course of the gamma efferent activity but some indications of its activity are displayed. Author
