Whole Skeletal Muscle Structure Objectives: 1. Know the anatomy of whole skeletal muscle and the different measurements of architectural properties of skeletal muscle. 2. Know the three general types of muscle architecture. 3. Understand the concept of physiologic cross-sectional area. 4. Understand the concept of pennation. 5. Know the architectural properties of skeletal muscles that are critical for force production vs. excursion(velocity). 6. Know the basic anatomy and function of muscle spindles and golgi tendon organs (GTO)
