Which of the following is true of an action potential
It is initiated by a temporary permeability to sodium ions which rush into the cell.; An action potential is a wave of electrical current.; An action potential is an all or nothing phenomenon - once started it goes to completion.; The result of the action potential is the contraction of the muscle cell.

Motor unit
Which of the following statements is true
Tetanic contraction is normal and desirable and is quite different from the pathologic condition of tetanus.; When a muscle is stimulated so rapidly that no evidence of relaxation is seen and the contractions are completely smooth and sustained the muscle is said to be in tetanus or in tetanic contraction.; Tetanic contractions of muscles are smooth and prolonged muscle contractions which can be slight or vigorous depending on what work has to be done.; Complete tetanus is a smooth continuous contraction without any evidence of relaxation and results from a very rapid rate of stimulation.

One of the pathways for ATP regeneration is direct phosphorylation of ADP by creatine phosphate.; At rest and during light exercise, ATP is regenerated almost entirely by metabolic pathways that use oxygen.; Aerobic respiration refers to metabolic pathways that use oxygen.; The initial steps of glucose breakdown occur via a pathway called glycolysis, which does not use oxygen and is an anaerobic part of the metabolic pathway.

The point of attachment of a muscle to the immovable or less movable bone is called the origin.; Flexion is a movement, generally in the sagittal plane, that decreases the angle of the joint and brings the two bones closer together.; Abduction is movement away from the body and occurs in the coronal plane.; In circumduction of the arm the distal end of the limb describes a cone.
