In one medial gastrocnemius muscle of each of several cats, the response was recorded of a single tendon organ to the contraction of a single motor unit which strongly excited the receptor. The motor unit was depleted of its glycogen and the depleted muscle fibres identified in PAS-stained transverse sections. The site of maximum tendon organ sensitivity… CONTINUE READING
