1. Isometric contractions of kitten soleus and flexor hallucis longus (FHL) muscles have been examined for evidence of polyneuronal innervation. The sum of tetanic tensions of two almost equal divisions of the ventral roots was greater than the tetanic tension elicited by stimulating both the divisions simultaneously. The difference was large in kittens aged about 3 days, was less at 2 weeks and was small or absent at 6 weeks.2. A tetanus elicited from one division of the ventral root… CONTINUE READING
