Proprioceptive Coordination of Movement Sequences: Discrimination of Joint Angle Versus Angular Distance (Fragment)

BEVAN, P. CORDO, L. CARLTON, AND M. CARLTON Robert S. Dow Neurological Sciences Institute, Good Samaritan Hospital and Medical Center, Portland, Oregon 97209 SUMMARY AND CONCLUSIONS The purpose of these experiments was to determine the accuracy with which human subjects could discriminate proprioceptive (nonretinotopic) targets during movement. The targets were located at either a specified…

Stumbling reactions in man: significance of proprioceptive and pre-programmed mechanisms (Fragment)

BY V. DIETZ, J. QUINTERN AND M. SILLEM. From the Department of Clinical Neurology and Neurophysiology, University of Freiburg, Freiburg, F.R.G. SUMMARY Electromyogram (e.m.g.) responses of the leg musculature and the corresponding joint movements were studied following a perturbation of the limb during walking on a treadmill, produced by a randomly timed treadmill acceleration impulse,…
