The mechanical properties of embryonic cardiac tissue, an important link between form and function, are largely unknown. This study provides new information on the viscoelastic behavior of the stage-16 and stage-18 (21/2 and 3 d) chick ventricle. The cylindrical ventricles were removed from the embryo, arrested in diastole, and mounted between two small… CONTINUE READING
