1. The time course of contraction and relaxation in the isometric twitch of a rabbit soleus muscle becomes more rapid following tenotomy and spinal cord section. This increase in speed could be prevented by long-term electrical stimulation at frequencies of 5 or 10/sec. It was not prevented by stimulation at frequencies of 20 or 40/sec.2. Long-term electrical stimulation of fast rabbit and cat muscles at a frequency of 10/sec had a slowing effect on the time course of contraction and relaxation… CONTINUE READING
