  • Insect fibrillar muscle can sustain oscillations in a mechanically resonant load because length changes of the active muscle are followed by delayed changes of tension. It has not been known whether this is an intrinsic property of the contractile mechanism, or whether it depends on the excitation-contraction coupling system. The object of the present investigations has been to decide between these two possibilities by examining the behaviour of glycerol-extracted fibrillar muscle from giant… CONTINUE READING
