Did you know that posture results from rapid stimulation of skeletal muscles? This lesson describes the nature of a muscle twitch and explains how...
An action potential, or wave of depolarization of significant strength, opens
voltage ... There are three kinds of graded muscle responses:
Quantal Summation or Recruitment.

If a muscle receives multiple stimuli very quickly (20-30 per second), it can only
relax partially before its next
Describe the difference between a twitch,
What would happen if you stimulated the muscle with an action potential, causing a muscle twitch, and then stimulated it again before the muscle fully relaxed?
