Abstract

The effects of cerebellar stimulation on the passively evoked electromyogram (EMG) responses of the biceps and triceps in spastic primates were studied. High-frequency stimulation decreased the abnormal cocontraction present during passive flexion and extension of the forearm. Furthermore, cerebellar stimulation resulted in a reciprocal pattern of EMG activity in the biceps and triceps, not present in control periods.
