Reflexes to Toe Muscles in the Cat's Hindlimb I. ENGBERG Department of Physiology, University of Goteborg, Giiteborg (Sweden) The dominating spinal reflex response to activation of several afferent systems from the extremities is the flexion by: 5. Even if your cat never steps foot outdoors, you've probably noticed how quickly he makes work of any insects or other small prey he finds in the house. Those quick reflexes allow outdoor cats to easily dispatch rodents and birds. Other feline reflexes almost guarantee he'll land on his feet. Supramaximal electrical stimulation of the articular nerves was found to elicit electromyographic (EMG) activity in the intrinsic muscles of the foot. EMG activity was not found in any of the calf muscles which cross the ankle. The average time delay from stimulus to EMG activity was ms. The reflex is then an automatic response to a stimulus that does not receive or need conscious thought. The knee-jerk response is any kind of reaction that is done automatically, without thought, and is one of the fastest and most primitive in the human body: it uses only two nerve cells via the spinal cord, Author: Disabled World.

Your reflexes will be quickest when you’re well-rested after seven to nine hours of sleep. A good night's sleep is made up of four or five sleep cycles, each of which consist of a period of deep sleep and rapid eye movement (REM) sleep. This adds up to seven to nine hours per : K. nerve () are routes followed by nerve impulses as they pass through the nervous system. pathways. interneurons in a withdrawal reflex are located in the () CNS.

The triceps surae of the cat was isolated from its insertion and its tension recorded isometrically. Its reflex responses to flexion and to extension of the ankle joint were recorded in decerebrate, spinal, and anesthetized normal animals. It had an initial phase of inhibition and a late one of by:
1. Electrical activity and length of ankle muscles were recorded by telemetry during free fall and landing in cats. 2. After foot contact, there was a delay in onset of stretch of ankle extensors of between 8 and 11 ms. High-speed cinematography showed the delay to be associated with rapid initial dorsiflexion of the toes. by: Table of Contents: - Learning Objectives - Anatomical Position - Sternomastoid - Muscles of the Dorsum/Back - Muscles of the Ventral Trunk - Deep muscles of the. Also there is something called the cat righting reflex. They can naturally determine the direction they are falling and withing about 3 feet twist their body to ensure they land on their feet. As an example one time there was a horsefly in my house that my cat, Madeline, was stalking. It finally made a mistake and flew about 4 feet directly above her.
