The muscle silent period and reciprocal inhibition in man

By G. C. Agarwal and G. L. Gottlieb


The mechanical properties of muscle are shown to have a significant influence on the duration of the silent period in the soleus EMG. In contrast to this, the mechanical events have no influence on the duration of the reciprocal inhibition of the anterior tibial muscle. However, a second, delayed cessation of the EMG activity in the anterior tibial muscle is due to mechanical events
