Electrical responses of muscle fibres in a small foot muscle of Xenopus laevis.

Abstract

1. Extensor digitorum longus IV (EDL IV) of Xenopus laevis was isolated together with its nerve and the 8th and 9th spinal roots. Motor units were functionally isolated.2. Glass micro-electrodes were used to penetrate the muscle fibres and to record their electrical responses to stimulation of single motor axons, or the total motor supply to the muscle.3… (More)
