...Venus Joumaa; Brian R. MacIntosh; Walter Herzog SUMMARY Force depression observed following active shortening is not well understood. Previous research suggested that force depression might be associated with a stress-induced inhibition of cross-bridges in the newly formed overlap zone following...

...Brad R. Moon; Kevin E. Conley; Stan L. Lindstedt; Michael R. Urquhart SUMMARY Reducing the cost of high-frequency muscle contractions can be accomplished by minimizing cross-bridge cycling or by recycling elastic strain energy. Energy saving by contractile minimization has very different...
