- EMG recordings of the electrical activity of muscle have proved to be a valuable tool in studying muscle function and reflex activity. SP(silent period) is elicited by a electrical stimulation on the chin during isometric contraction of jaw muscle. This paper proposes a model of the inhibitory reflex mechanism of jaw muscle after electrical stimulation. The SPs of jaw muscle after a electrical stimulation to the chin were divided into SP1 and SP2. SP1 is produced by the activation of periodontal receptors. The activation of nociceptors contributes to the SP2. As a result, the EMG signal generated by a proposed a model of inhibitory reflex mechanism is similar to real both EMG signal including SP1 and SP2. The present study have shown differences of SP1 and SP2 induced by inhibitory reflex mechanism.
