Abstract

1. A method is described for resolving isometric tetanic tension developed by fast-twitch and slow-graded components of heterogeneous toad muscles. This makes use of the difference in threshold for excitation of low threshold nerve fibres which normally innervate the fast-twitch muscle fibres and high threshold nerve fibres which innervate slow-graded muscle fibres.
