F-response studies: Computer analysis and recovery cycle

Mastaglia, F.L., Carroll, W.M. and Thickbroom, G.W. (1984) F-response studies: Computer analysis and recovery cycle. Clinical and Experimental Neurology, 20 . pp. 217-223.


A computerized technique has been used for the analysis of F responses in normal subjects. Differences between the dominant and non-dominant upper limb have been found in some subjects and potentiation of the F response by the Jendrassik manoeuvre has been demonstrated. The recovery cycle of the F response has been studied in human subjects and in the rat and has been found to be similar to that of the H reflex. Such studies may be useful for studying alpha motor neurone excitability.
