Abstract: Skeletal muscle is a classic example of a biological structure-function relationship. At both macro- and micro-scopic levels, skeletal muscle is exquisitely tailored for force generation and movement. This page is an attempt to at least mention some of the important aspects of the basic science of the neuromuscular system, a kind of table of contents in prose. [Information of the supplier]
