In a previous paper (Inbar, 1972/III) a new adaptive model was proposed for muscular control. According to that scheme muscle spindles (MS) supply continuous information about the system dynamics. In the present study integral pulse frequency modulation (IPFM) is used to correlate MS afferent signals, recorded from frog sartorius muscle, to the same muscle dynamics, in order to establish the feasibility of the proposed MS role in the adaptive muscle model.
