inability of muscle fibers to contract after long period of contraction.
time between muscle fiber stimulation and measurement of force generation.
motor neuron and all the muscle fibers it innervates.
period of force generated
type of wave summation with partial relaxation observed between twitches.
motor unit recruitment
increasing the number of motor units that are stimulated to contract.
stimulus that results in maximal force generated.
lowest stimulus that results in force generated,
single contractile event in response to single action potential.
period during which more crossbridges detach then reattach to thin filaments.
type of wave summation with no observable relaxation between twitches.
