E XPERIMENTAL denervation studies of muscle have been carried out to a considerable extent in order to observe the process of atrophy. The majority of investigations have been performed on the gastrocnemius muscle in the white rat (I). It was believed desirable to obtain further information on the effects of denervation on another muscle, preferably one with a different rate of metabolism than the gastrocnemius (2). In this study, the weight changes, oxygen requirement, connective tissue and… CONTINUE READING
