Discusses the unresolved question of muscular involvement in the kinesthetic sense modality when both physiological and behavioral data are examined. The relevancy of the type of stimulation used in psychological research can be held in question. The spatial component of limb stimulation was held constant and muscular activity varied in a study with 21 undergraduates. A muscular aftereffect was found which, it is suggested, should more properly be called a proprioceptive spatial aftereffect to distinguish it from the kinesthetic spatial aftereffect. (17 ref.)
