Skeletal Muscle: Form and Function
Skeletal Muscle: Form and Function is an excellent reference for exercise physiologists, physical therapists, athletic trainers, sports physicians, and strength and conditioning specialists. More than 1,000 references and 300 detailed illustrations also make it an ideal text for graduate-level muscle physiology courses. Dr. Alan McComas, a professor of Biomedical Sciences and Medicine (neurology), is known worldwide for his lifetime contributions to research in muscle physiology. In Skeletal Muscle: Form and Function, he examines the structure of muscle and nerve and shows how structure is intimately related to function. He also discusses the cellular processes that take place when muscles work and how certain clinical disorders result from specific defects in muscle and nerve.
