I am doing a research of EMG and muscle fatigue. By Size principle, the
recruitment pattern is from slow motor unit to fast motor unit. Also,
twitch generation of fast motor units is larger than slow motor unit. In
other point of veiw, if twitch is relative to the % of Fast twitch or
Slow twitch in a muscle fibre. Now, I want to clarify that what is
relationship of Fast motor unit and fast twitch fibre. Also, are there
any book have an information about number of motor unit or muscle fibre
in a muscle group?
Please give me any comment.
