  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

In mammals muscle spindles are found in almost all skeletal muscles with the curious exception that they are lacking in the extraocular muscles of some species. Their occurrence may differ even within a single order, for example, eye muscles in man and the chimpanzee have these organs, but the same muscles in several species of monkeys have none or only a negligible few. The responses of the extraocular muscle spindles are characterized by high dynamic and low static indices to sinusoidal or ramp stretch.
