Isometric responses of individual gastrocnemius muscle units of both fast (F) and slow (S) twitch type were studied during repetitive intracellular stimulation of the innervating motoneurons in anesthetized cats. Paired stimuli usually produced maximum responses (measured in terms of tension-time area) with interpulse intervals between 5 and 10 msec. However, longer pulse trains produced maximum tension-time area per pulse with relatively long interpulse intervals (referred to as the optimum… CONTINUE READING
