Spinal Reflexes Excitability and Homosynaptic Depression After a Bout of Whole-Body Vibration Muscle and Nerve (2011)
Although whole-body vibration (WBV) affects neuromuscular performance, it remains unclear whether the effects are due to spinal reflex potentiation or inhibition, or differ between muscle groups. This study aimed to identify the effect of WBV ...
Ice Application Effects on Peroneus and Tibialis Anterior Motoneuron Excitability in Subjects with Functional Ankle Instability The International Journal of Neuroscience (2010)
Evidence that focally cooling the ankle joint facilitates soleus and peroneus longus spinal reflex activity in healthy subjects has been reported. This response has been confirmed in individuals with a history of joint pathology for ...
The effect of focal ankle cooling on spinal reflex activity in individuals with chronic ankle instability Athletic Training and Sports Health Care (2009)
Evidence indicates focally cooling the ankle joint increases sole-us spinal reflex activity in healthy individuals. This response has not been confirmed in individuals with a history of joint pathology. This study used repeated measures to ...
Hydration status does not have a significant effect on soleus motoneuron pool excitability The International Journal of Neuroscience (2009)
The purpose of this study was to examine the effect of hydration status on the soleus Hoffmann reflex (H-reflex): muscle response ratio in nine healthy subjects. Soleus H-reflex, urine specific gravity (USG), and body weight ...
The Effects of Plyometric Training on Spinal and Supraspinal Motor Control Internet Journal of Allied Health Sciences and Practice
Purpose: The purpose of this study was to determine the effects of plyometric training on spinal and supraspinal motor control in healthy active females. Methods: A 2 (Group) x 2 (Session) x 2 (Stance) mixed ...
