    The differential nerve block produced by ischaemia has been used in an attempt to identify the afferent nerve fibres responsible for vibratory inhibition of the monosynaptic reflex in man. It is concluded that the inhibition arises mainly from receptors in the lower leg and is carried by myelinated afferent fibres larger than A-delta.
