The ankle extensor muscles of the rat have different mechanical and physiological properties, providing a means of studying how changes in locomotor demands influence muscle fascicle behaviour, force and mechanical power output in different populations of muscle fibre types. Muscle fascicle strain, strain rate and activation patterns in the soleus, plantaris and medial gastrocnemius muscles of the rat were quantified from sonomicrometric and myoelectric data, collected during treadmill… CONTINUE READING
