Presentation Transcript


The motor neuron l.jpg
The -Motor Neuron

  • Innervates skeletal muscle

  • Receives input from higher centers

  • Receives sensory input from muscle stretch and tension receptors



The motor neuron5 l.jpg
The -Motor Neuron

  • All or none

  • Size principle




Motor unit8 l.jpg
Motor Unit

  • The ratio of nerves to muscle fiber is specific to a motor unit and defined by the task.

    Fine movements (focusing eyes)

    Gross movements (muscles involved in jumping)
