Eight different mimic muscles of 13 human cadavers (7 male, 6 female) were studied by histochemical techniques. In sections stained for myosin ATPase the composition of fibre types was quantitatively evaluated by computer-assisted image analysis. The data were compared to those of 2 muscles in the lower limb of the same individuals. According to the percentage of the type I muscle fibres 3 groups of mimic muscles were distinguished: (1) the orbicularis oculi muscle (15%), (2) the major… CONTINUE READING
