The isotonic length/force relationships of nine skeletal muscles in the cat's hindlimb were determined using electrical stimulation of the sciatic nerve branches. Large variability in the active, passive, total force patterns and elongation ranges was found. The lateral gastrocnemius (LG), medial gastrocnemius (MG), peroneus longus (PL), flexor digitorum… CONTINUE READING
