The physiological cost of negative work
A STUDY OF INOTROPIC MECHANISMS IN THE PAPILLARY MUSCLE PREPARATION
The length-tension diagram, the force-velocity relation, the characteristics of the series elasticity, and the duration of the active state have been studied on the papillary muscle preparation of
The positive and negative heat production associated with a nerve impulse
TLDR
The ‘initial’ heat production of a non-medullated nerve (Maia) has been reinvestigated with more rapid recording equipment than was previously available and a positive and negative heat production was observed, which may be associated with the active phase of the impulse.
The relation between velocity of shortening and the tension‐length curve of skeletal muscle
TLDR
The experiments described in this paper were carried out in order to examine the relation between force and velocity in other regions of the tension-length curve.
MUSCLE MEMBRANE POTENTIALS IN EPISODIC ADYNAMIA.
Volume changes in frog muscle during contraction
TLDR
The variation in volume when a muscle contracts was the subject of much discussion towards the end of the 17th century, and more recently by Fulton (1926) and by Ernst (1958), who first demonstrated the decrease with certainty and set the stage for many investigations of volume change in frog striated muscle.
