Motor patterns during kicking movements in the locust

Journal of Comparative Physiology. A, Sensory, Neural, and Behavioral Physiology

PMID: 7707268

Abstract

Locusts (Schistocerca gregaria) use a distinctive motor pattern to extend the tibia of a hind leg rapidly in a kick. The necessary force is generated by an almost isometric contraction of the extensor tibiae muscle restrained by the co-contraction of the flexor tibiae (co-contraction ph...read more

Neuronal Cell Types

There are diverse ranges of neurons, which are defined by their structural, functional, connectional and molecular properties. For example, some type of neurons includes sensory, sympathetic, and motor neurons. Discover the latest research on neuronal cell types here.

Inotropic Agents & Heart Disease

Inotropic agents alter the force or energy of muscular contractions. Negatively inotropic agents weaken the force of muscular contractions. Positively inotropic agents increase the strength of muscular contraction. Inotropic agents are used in hospitalized patients with acute decompensated heart failure, with reduced left ventricular ejection fraction and with signs of end-organ dysfunction in the setting of a low cardiac output, or with severe systolic heart failure awaiting heart transplant to maintain hemodynamic stability or as a bridge to decision. Discover the latest research on inotrpic agents and heart diseases here.
