Özet

Ankle clonus and soleus medium-latency reflex are stretch-induced responses. Clonus is traditionally considered to be the result of oscillation in the group Ia mediated spinal stretch reflex but the soleus medium-latency reflex response originates mainly from the activation of group II afferents.
