Muscle contraction

Chapter Contraction of Muscles Tissue

There are three types of muscle contractions - isometric, concentric and eccentric. Eccentric contractions are likely to cause more severe #DOMS than other contractions.

Muscular Strength - type of contraction, eccentric contraction produces the greatest force, then the isometric contractions which means there is no change in the muscular length and then then concentric contraction with is the shortening of the muscle.

Diagram of muscle tissue.  I love this.  No wonder we are so strong!  Look at all those fibers packed in there!  I remember learning this in Anatomy and Physiology and nerding out :-)

This infographic describes skeletal muscles, which are structurally different from heart muscle and the smooth muscle that controls digestion. Unlike heart and smooth msucle, skeletal muscle can be voluntarily controlled. Skeletal muscle is also called striated muscle because of its striped appearance.

Mechanism of muscle contraction from synapse to myofilaments - though missing neuron action potential triggering intake of calcium in the presynaptic membrane, triggering release of Acetylcholine into the synaptic cleft (eg - transfer of electrical energy to chemical energy).

Role of Neuromuscular Junction

Muscle contraction and relaxation. Interdigitation of thick and thin filaments allows sarcomere contraction, which is best explained by the sliding filament model in which actin filaments slide along myosin filaments. During contraction, both sets of filaments retain their normal length, A bands remain unchanged in length, I bands shorten, and H zones are narrowed.

This video explains muscle contraction. A nice feature of this video is that it incorporates when ATP is being used to power the contraction. Muscle contraction and also relaxation require energy.

Microscopic Anatomy and Contraction of Skeletal Muscle.  We have already examined the structure of skeletal muscle as seen with the light microscope. As you know, skeletal muscle tissue has alternating light and dark bands, giving it a striated appearance. The electron microscope shows that these bands are due to the arrangement of myofilaments in a muscle fiber
