1. The effects of hydrostatic changes in perfusion pressure on performance of working fatigue-resistant muscle fibres in the hand were studied in six normal subjects. 2. Supramaximal stimuli were delivered in trains of 200 ms duration, at 1 train S-1, to the ulnar nerve proximal to the wrist to produce isometric contractions of adductor pollicis. The force of contraction was measured and, after a level contraction force was achieved, the arm was passively raised or lowered. 3. Lifting the hand… CONTINUE READING
