PMID:  1927409     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Evoked electromyograms (EMGs) induced by galvanic stimulation of the labyrinth were examined in the muscles of the lower limbs. The labyrinthine-evoked EMGs appeared in the muscles of the femoral and gluteal regions and of the legs, and these muscle activities were changed by the head position in spite of the labyrinthine stimulation being the same. The vestibulo-spinal reflexes fulfil these functions in coordination with the neck proprioceptor.
