Abstract

The hypothesis that the parameters of the activation function model distinguish the motoneuron response to static spindle inputs from the response to dynamic spindle inputs was tested. Data were obtained from 13 participants who suffered a unilateral brain injury more than one year prior to testing. Results of the study have implications for the quantification of spasticity.
