The H-reflex is produced when action potentials traveling proximally along sensory fibers enter the dorsal horn of the spinal cord, stimulating the monosynaptic
Input-output curves were obtained before and after tetanic stimulation in slices from animals after in vivo exposure by monitoring the amplitude of the fEPSP, reflecting the monosynaptic
response generated in many different neurons recorded from the apical dendritic layer as a function of stimulation intensity.
and polysynaptic pathways have been shown to mediate TVR (Desmedt and Godeaux, 1980; Luo et al.
A team led by Gladstone Investigator Anatol Kreitzer, PhD, and Salk Investigator Edward Callaway, PhD, combined mouse models with a sophisticated tracing technique-known as the monosynaptic
rabies virus system-to assemble brain-wide maps of neurons that connect with the basal ganglia, a region of the brain that is involved in movement and decision-making.
The movement of the vibration plate during WBV exposure is postulated to activate both monosynaptic
and polysynaptic neural pathways adequate to generate a "tonic vibration reflex," similar to the stretch reflex.
After a burst of high-frequency stimulation to a monosynaptic
pathway, the postsynaptic response magnitude is significantly increased.
1989), which is mediated by monosynaptic
and polysynaptic pathways (Matthews, 1966; Romaiguere et al.
In the non-SCI model, various modes of exercise clearly influence monosynaptic
reflex pathways [146-147].
The origin of this pathway appears to be a monosynaptic
system that projects from the motor areas of the putamen to the internal globus pallidus.

reflex: a tool to investigate motor control in humans.
The soleus H reflex has been used as a tool for assessing monosynaptic
reflex excitability in humans during both rest and voluntary activity .
