How neurons make us jump: the neural control of stretch-Shortening cycle movements

Taube, Wolfgang ; Leukel, Christian ; Gollhofer, Albert

In: Exercise and Sport Sciences Reviews, 2012, vol. 40, no. 2, p. 106–115

How can the human central nervous system (CNS) control complex jumping movements task- and context-specifically? This review highlights the complex interaction of multiple hierarchical levels of the CNS, which work together to enable stretch-shortening cycle contractions composed of activity resulting from feedforward (preprogrammed) and feedback (reflex) loops.
