Överskrift Reverse correlation analysis of the stretch response of primary muscle spindle afferent fibers
Beskrivning The nonlinear responses of deefferented primary muscle spindle afferent fibers to muscle stretching consisted of a train of action potentials which was analyzed when random changes in muscle length (band-limited gaussian white noise) were applied in cats. The upper cutoff frequency of the applied noise (the source stimulus) was varied between 1.6 and 570 Hz; the amplitude of the random input was varied between 0.002 and 1.2 mm. In a previous report the reverse correlation of 1st and 2nd order was studied for its ability to analyze data of a continuous input signal and pulsatile events in the output. Computations of the Wiener kernels h1 and h2 or their equivalents, the perispike averages of the 1st and 2nd order, were computed from the random stretch responses of muscle-spindle afferents. Then the 1st- and the 2nd-order predictions and the summation of both to random muscle stretch was estimated. A general finding was that the 1st-order component was approximately 10 times that of the 2nd-order component, when both were combined in approximation procedures to give the closest prediction of observed responses to random test stimuli. The approximation was poor when the source stimulus was less than 0.03 mm and improved when it was greater. With the increase in the upper cutoff frequency of the random source input, the approximation worsened continuously. Predictions to ramp-and-hold stimuli were computed, as well as responses to random stimulation. Limiting the upper cutoff frequency did not diminish the value of the techniques applied.
