Muscle spindles in the tenuissimus muscle of mature golden Syrian hamsters were examined by conventional and high-resolution scanning electron microscopy (HRSEM). For conventional SEM, entire muscles were first fixed in 2.5% buffered glutaraldehyde. Spindles were then isolated with a dissecting microscope under darkfield illumination and postfixed in 1.0%(More)
Muscle spindles and extrafusal fibers in the tenuissimus muscle of mature golden Syrian hamsters were studied morphologically and quantitatively using several light microscopic techniques. Muscle spindles were identified in serial-transverse frozen-sections of whole muscles stained with hematoxylin and eosin. Five tenuissimus muscles were examined from(More)
