1. The ventral root dissection technique was used to obtain contractile and electromyogram (e.m.g.) characteristics of ninety-five plantaris motor units in situ in pentobarbitone-anaesthetized rats (n = 20). 2. Motor units demonstrated a wide spectrum of sizes, contractile speeds, and fatigue indices, and were categorized in the same manner as cat hind-limb motor units. Fast-fatigable (f.f.) and fast-intermediate fatigue resistant (f.i.) motor units constituted 20.2 and 25.5% of the motor unit… CONTINUE READING
