Abstract

The mechanical and reflex properties of the soleus muscle of decerebrated cats and the human elbow joint under white noise position perturbations were studied. The single muscle's length and force, and the elbow joint angle and torque, were used to characterize the single and multiple muscle system dynamics respectively. Nonlinear delay differential equations were used to model the mechanical and reflex components separately. Preliminary results showed that the approach provided a reasonable way to characterize the delayed reflexive activation as well as the instantaneous mechanical properties.
