Can anyone help me locate references regarding the reliability of
EMG onset times. In other words, if the muscle is stimulated with a
consistent stimulus on multiple trials, will the reaction time be the same?
Will the reliability differ based on a mechanical stimulus (e.g. tendon
tap/perturbation) versus an electrical stimulus.

Thanks in advance. A summary will be posted.
