Isokinetic task modeling. a From top to bottom the following simulation results are shown: (i) central input for three different speeds, (ii) normalized motoneuron firing rate in case of no feedbacks, force feedback only, movement feedback only and both feedbacks, (iii) feedback in the four cases. b Peak of simulated firing rate for five different speeds for the four cases. Lines over bars indicate lack of significant differences (ANOVA test, p > 0.1) between sets. Data are expressed as mean ± SD. Mean is on 10 repetitions. c Slope of firing rate increases following onset of stimulus as a function of motion velocity in the four cases. Dashed line indicates linear fit and title reports fit quality
