  1. 1. Classification of muscle stretch receptor afferents in humans

    Detta är en avhandling från Umeå : Umeå universitet

    Författare :Benoni B. Edin; Umeå universitet.; [1988]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Muscle spindles; Golgi tendon organs; Classification of muscle receptors; Microneurography; Human hand; Stretch sensitization; Voluntary contraction; Static position sensitivity; Fusimotor control;

    Sammanfattning : The response patterns of human stretch receptors in the finger extensor muscles of the forearm were studied using the microneurography technique. Single-unit recordings were obtained from one-hundred and twenty-four afferents. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Experimental studies of spinal mechanisms associated with muscle fatigue

    Detta är en avhandling från Umeå : Umeå universitet

    Författare :Ivana Kalezic; Högskolan i Gävle.; Umeå universitet.; [2004]
    Nyckelord :Muscle fatigue; Monosynaptic reflex; Presynaptic Inhibition; Recurrent Inhibition; Fusimotor System; Fos-immunoreactivity; Referral Pain; kirurgi; Surgery; muscle fatigue; monosynaptic reflex; presynaptic inhibition; recurrent inhibition; fusimotor system; referral pain;

    Sammanfattning : Muscle fatigue is ubiquitous in every day life.Muscle fatigue might be considered as an altered state of motor behaviour, which impairs motor performance. By contrast, muscle fatigue could also be considered a positive phenomenon, which protects muscle tissue from damage that might be incurred to it by overuse. LÄS MER

  3. 3. On spinal mechanisms for reflex control in man modulation of Ia-afferent excitation with changes in muscle length, activation level and fatigue

    Detta är en avhandling från Stockholm : Karolinska institutet

    Författare :Maria M. Nordlund; GIH. Gymnastik- och idrottshögskolan; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2004]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Medicin Teknik; Medicine Technology; Electromyography; eccentric; concentric; presynaptic inhibition; H-reflex; central fatigue; twitch interpolation; muscle spindle; Electromyography; eccentric; concentric; presynaptic inhibition; H-reflex; central fatigue; twitch interpolation; muscle spindle;

    Sammanfattning : To control muscle force, neural activation has to take alterations in muscle mechanics into account. This thesis assesses modulations in excitatory efficacy of Ia-afferents during muscle length changes at different levels of voluntary activation and during fatigue. LÄS MER

  4. 4. A sensory role for the cruciate ligaments regulation of joint stability via reflexes onto the γ-muscle-spindle system

    Detta är en avhandling från Umeå : Umeå universitet

    Författare :Per Sjölander; Umeå universitet.; [1989]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Joint afferent; Mechanoreceptor; Cruciate ligament; Fusimotor neuron; reflex; muscle spindle afferent; motor control; cat;

    Sammanfattning : Reflex effects evoked by graded electrical stimulation of the posterior articular nerves (PAN) of the ipsi- and contralateral knee joints were investigated using both micro-electrode recordings from 7 - motoneurones and recordings from single muscle muscle spindle afferents. Spindle afferent responses were also recorded using natural stimulation of different types of receptors, to elucidate if the articular reflexes onto the y -motoneurones were potent enough to significantly alter the muscle spindle afferent activity.

  5. 5. Discharges in human muscle afferents during manual tasks

    Detta är en avhandling från Umeå : Centrum för studier av vetenskap och värderingar (CSVOV)

    Författare :Michael Dimitriou; Umeå universitet.; [2009]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; motor control; muscle spindle; Golgi tendon organ; muscle afferent; microneurography; proprioception; sensorimotor; fusimotor; hand; forward model; ; MEDICINE Morphology; cell biology; pathology Cell biology Neuroscience; MEDICIN Morfologi; cellbiologi; patologi Cellbiologi Neurovetenskap;

    Sammanfattning : Muscle spindles are complex sensory organs that have been strongly implicated in the control and perception of movements. Human muscle spindles in relaxed muscles behave as stretch receptors, responding to the length and velocity of their parent muscles. LÄS MER
