We study the interspike intervals (ISI) time series of the spontaneous fusimotor neuron activity by applying the detrended fluctuation analysis that is a modification of the random walk model analysis. Thus, we have found evidence for the white noise characteristics of the ISI time series, which means that the fusimotor activity does not possess temporal correlations. We conclude that such an activity represents the requisite noisy component for occurrence of the stochastic resonance mechanism in the neural coordination of muscle spindles.
