Since the end of the 1939-45 war, the task of someone trying to understand muscular contraction has become in some respects easier, and in others more difficult. On the credit side, straightforward explanations are now available—and well established—for the main events in neuromuscular transmission, propagation of the action potential, the inward spread of an activating process, chemical activation of the myofibrils, and the sliding filament process of length change. On the other side new… Expand
