from what we found. The aim was to explore residual force enhancement properties of a muscle across its entire length and for all parts of the force–length relationship. While doing these experiments, I realized that passive force following active muscle stretching (and deactivation of the muscle) was

The sensory tests revealed that some participants with hemiparesis had mild to severe somatosensory defects. Others, who showed no somatosensory defects during the test, displayed an exaggerated stretch reflex

inhibition is important for relaxing from a volitional contraction or preventing a prepared movement. Stretch reflexes may be responsible for residual EMG during passive pedaling. Typically, monosynaptic reflexes are dramatically reduced by both passive and volitional pedaling ( Brooke, McIlroy, & Collins
