Hello all,

I am working on the field of neural network. I am doing a Phd on
Neural Network and Unsupervised Learning. In order for me to test a
model, I would like to make a a study of motor reflex in the Spinal
Cord. For this I need to make a model of something which will have the
same mechanic properties as a muscle. Can someone tell me where I can
find a muscle model, suitable for computer simulation ?
I plane to start with the knee, I would like to modelise a 4 feet
things on the computer. But for this I need some characteristics about
how contract/relax a muscle. What relation existe between the output of
a neuron & fiber contraction ?

I would like to thank you very much for any answer who can help me,
because I am very new in this field, I have the mathematical background,
mechanical background but not the biological one. So thanks a lot,
