Simple explanations of the role of reciprocal inhibition during muscle stretching are inadequate. For example, recurrent collateral pathways from motor neurons of the opposing muscle group inhibit interneurons that reduce the excitation of alpha motor neurons of the target muscle group, thereby blocking inhibitory input to target muscle groups (Hultborn, Illert, and Santini 1974). In addi- tion, presynaptic inhibition can modify transmission from sensory neurons, and interneurons can receive input from more than one sensory receptor as well as from multiple descending tracts in the central nervous system.
