Charles Scott Sherrington Quotes


6 Charles Scott Sherrington quotes:



"Existence of an excited state is not a prerequisite for the production of inhibition; inhibition can exist apart from excitation no less than, when called forth against an excitation already in progress, it can suppress or moderate it."
"Further study of central nervous action, however, finds central inhibition too extensive and ubiquitous to make it likely that it is confined solely to the taxis of antagonistic muscles."
"In other words the inhibitory process was found capable of no less delicate quantitative adjustment than is the excitatory process."
"In some units it may suppress the motor discharge altogether, in some it may merely slow the motor discharge thus lessening the wave frequency of the contraction and so the tension."
"Reflex inhibition acting against a reflex titanic contraction may diminish the contraction in one or other or all of several different ways."
"That a strong stimulus to such an afferent nerve, exciting most or all of its fibres, should in regard to a given muscle develop inhibition and excitation concurrently is not surprising."
