Hey! Hope this helps  Motor Control Tenomuscular receptors: Gamma and beta lengthen equatorial region because they contract sarcomeres  which excite Ia and II afferent (makes muscle spindle think joint position is changing) o Sarcomeres only in the polar regions Alpha motor neuron causes contraction of intrafusal fibers o Beta motor-neurons are branches off the alpha motor-neurons and affect  intrafusal fibers o When extrafusal fibers contract (alpha motors) intrafusal fibers contract  (gamma and beta) Efferent motor neurons plug into muscle fibers that innervate muscle spindle fibers  sensitive to change in length, gamma motor neurons cause contraction of intrafusal  muscle fibers Injure a ligament/cartilage and get mixed up messages or not messages Ensable coding: work with memory, good because if something goes wrong there is a back up

Unformatted text preview: in place-More afferent projections than efferent Information can guide long-duration movements, such as staying in the middle of the lane when driving Information cannot guide rapid movements: not possible to make corrections in movement using feedback because we cannot process it fast enough Short-duration movements: once started cannot be stopped, voluntary movements are preprogrammed Graph slide: First spike = spinal stretch Second spike = long-latency stretch reflex Third spike motions = voluntary movement If keeping arm at 90 degrees, then told not to worry about it falling down if get hit, the long-latency reflex decreases or ceases to exist (shows that reflex is related in intention of task)...

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
