Morphometric and histochemical methods were used to estimate the force-developing capabilities and fiber-type contents of four muscle complexes (rhomboideus, levator scapulae, trapezius, and sternomastoideus) that link the shoulder girdle to the skull and cervical vertebrae. Each complex contained at least two member muscles that were distinctive architecturally and often had specialized innervation patterns. Trapezius and sternocleidomastoideus were innervated by both cranial nerve XI and… CONTINUE READING
