Effect of a ‘Fast’ Nerve on ‘Slow’ Muscle Fibres in the Frog


KUFFLER et al.1–3 have shown that in the frog there are two very distinct types of skeletal muscle fibres; one, the more common, is capable of generating spikes and giving twitches; while the other is not. Further differences that fibres of the spike type are innervated by fast nerve fibres and give only a transient contraction to maintained depolarization… (More)
