Describe in detail a muscle contraction and relaxation from the point of the nervous stimuli. Describe all cellular structures and physiological events that occur at the cellular and tissue level that are directly involved with the muscle contraction (receptors, etc.). I am referring to skeletal muscle (like contraction of a bicep).© BrainMass Inc. brainmass.com October 9, 2019, 4:02 pm ad1c9bdddf
During skeletal muscle contraction the following events occur:
1. Discharge of motor neuron.
2. Release of transmitter (acetylcholine) at motor end-plate.
3. Binding of acetylcholine to nicotinic acetylcholine receptors.
4. Increased Na+ ...
The solution provides a detailed description of a muscle contraction.
