Isometric tension in a muscle can be graded by varying the firing rate of each motor unit as well as by varying the number of units which are recruited. Several important reports have been published dealing with the relation between the tension produced in a muscle and firing rate of single motor units in voluntary contraction in human muscles 2-4. However, the question of how the firing rate could be altered by varying the speed of contraction has not yet been pursued systematically, although… CONTINUE READING
