Title: H-reflex in human masseter / by Sheila Doreen Scutter.
Author: Scutter, Sheila Doreen
Issue Date: 1999
School/Discipline: Dept. of Physiology
Abstract: H-relexes are used to determine the reflex connections of muscle spindle afferents, the exitability of the motorneuron pool and the integrity of the reflex pathways. However, H-relexes are small and can be difficult to elicit in the masseter, limiting their use in the investigation of the masticatory system. This study investigated the recruitment of masseter motorneurons into the H-reflex, compared to the recruitment occuring during voluntary isometric biting, to determine the distribution of the effective muscle spindle input.
