Extensor muscles of the leg are actively involved in weight support and walking activities. These muscles are extensively linked by inhibitory, bidirectional, force dependent pathways that contribute to the successful execution of a range of functional behaviors, including locomotion. These reflex pathways are thought to arise from Golgi tendon organs and are believed to regulate limb stiffness and promote inter-joint coordination during movements. The relative magnitudes of these linkages in th...
