... would be even more extreme in a temperate bat species that is capable of flight at variable environmental temperatures. We measured the contractile properties of the proximal pectoralis muscle and distal extensor carpi radialis muscle at a range of temperatures in the big brown bat, Eptesicus fuscus...

... contractile properties and locomotor performance. In this study, we aimed to investigate the effect of aestivation on iliofibularis and sartorius muscle morphology and contractile function of C. alboguttata over a longer, more ecologically relevant time-frame of 9 months. We found that whole muscle mass...

... of the force lever itself; and (3) the interaction between the muscle and the servo-controlled force lever, which arises from the delay in the response of the lever to changes in force. In the experiments reported here, the lever was tuned to produce minimal damping (2 ms step response). contractile...
