  1. 1. Human muscle spindles complex morphology and structural organisation

    Author : Jing-Xia Liu; Högskolan i Gävle.; Umeå universitet.; [2004]
    Keywords : human; muscle spindIe; intrafusal fiber; aging; biceps brachii; deep muscles of the neck; MyHC; mATPase; SERCA; Human Anatomy; anatomi; muscle spindle;

    Abstract : Muscle spindles are skeletal muscle mechanoreceptors that mediate the stretch reflex and provide axial and limb position information to the central nervous system. They have been proposed to play a major role in the pathophysiology of muscle pain. READ MORE

  2. 2. Extra- and intrafusal muscle fibre type compositions of the human masseter at young age. In perspective of growth and functional maturation of the jaw-face motor system

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå University

    Author : Catharina Österlund; Umeå universitet.; Umeå universitet.; [2011]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; jaw; limb; human; muscle; morphology; fibre type; myosin heavy chain; muscle spindle; MEDICINE Morphology; cell biology; pathology Morphology; MEDICIN Morfologi; cellbiologi; patologi Morfologi; anatomi; Human Anatomy;

    Abstract : Muscles control body posture and movement by extrafusal and intrafusal (muscle spindle) fibres. The purpose of this thesis was to provide insight into the muscular basis for human jaw function at young age. READ MORE

  3. 3. Transcriptome analysis on in vivo derived laser microbeam microdissected cells. Analysis of smooth muscle transcriptomes

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå University

    Author : Stefan Johannes Scheidl; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2004]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; microarray; laser microdissection; RNA amplification; smooth muscle cells; smooth muscle differentiation; smooth muscle transcriptome; smooth muscle diversity;

    Abstract : Smooth muscle cells (SMCs) are found in the respiratory, urogenital, circulatory and digestive systems. They provide contractility and structural support for those organs and perform multiple physiological important functions, such as modulation of blood pressure, regulation of airway resistance, and control of gastrointestinal and genitourinary motility.

  4. 4. Experimental studies of spinal mechanisms associated with muscle fatigue

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå University

    Author : Ivana Kalezic; Högskolan i Gävle.; Umeå universitet.; [2004]
    Keywords : Muscle fatigue; Monosynaptic reflex; Presynaptic Inhibition; Recurrent Inhibition; Fusimotor System; Fos-immunoreactivity; Referral Pain; kirurgi; Surgery; muscle fatigue; monosynaptic reflex; presynaptic inhibition; recurrent inhibition; fusimotor system; referral pain;

    Abstract : Muscle fatigue is ubiquitous in every day life.Muscle fatigue might be considered as an altered state of motor behaviour, which impairs motor performance. By contrast, muscle fatigue could also be considered a positive phenomenon, which protects muscle tissue from damage that might be incurred to it by overuse. READ MORE

  5. 5. On spinal mechanisms for reflex control in man modulation of Ia-afferent excitation with changes in muscle length, activation level and fatigue

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska institutet

    Author : Maria M. Nordlund; GIH. Gymnastik- och idrottshögskolan; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2004]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Medicin Teknik; Medicine Technology; Electromyography; eccentric; concentric; presynaptic inhibition; H-reflex; central fatigue; twitch interpolation; muscle spindle; Electromyography; eccentric; concentric; presynaptic inhibition; H-reflex; central fatigue; twitch interpolation; muscle spindle;

    Abstract : To control muscle force, neural activation has to take alterations in muscle mechanics into account. This thesis assesses modulations in excitatory efficacy of Ia-afferents during muscle length changes at different levels of voluntary activation and during fatigue. READ MORE
