موضوع: muscle tone الثلاثاء نوفمبر 02, 2010 5:34 am
Tone within skeletal muscle is controlled via a receptor called the MUSCLE SPINDLE. Therefore, to understand the control of tone it is imperative to understand function of the muscle spindle . Whenever skeletal muscle is stretched the muscle spindles are stimulated.
They detect: 1. changes in the length of muscle fibers. 2. the rate of change at which the muscles are lengthen stretched.
