1. The increase in rate of heat production caused by stretch in the unstimulated frog's sartorius (stretch response) has been measured using a conventional thermopile technique.2. The rate of heat production was found constant between l(0) (the distance in vivo between the tendons when the legs were in a straight line) and 1.2 l(0), and rose rapidly above this length to reach 3-5 times the basal rate at 1.3 l(0). Stretching to greater lengths appeared to damage the muscles.3. The stretch… CONTINUE READING
