Abstract-Deformationof the surface of passive medial gastrocnemius muscle (MG) was measured in L.~LW while performing a hysteresis test. The gastrocnemius muscle of male rats were dissected free and the distal tendon was cut. The lateral head was separated from the medial head. The muscle origins were left intact. 60-70 fluorescent. polystyrene spheres (diameter 0.7 mm) were attached to the surface of the MG. During the experiment. twodimensional video recordings of the movements of the MG were made. The coor…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
