Jones / De Haan / Round Skeletal Muscle

Understanding the function of skeletal muscle requires knowledge of its structure from the level of gross anatomy down to that of molecular organization. This book is mainly concerned with skeletal muscle physiology sand biochemistry and covers from embryonic development, muscle organization, energy metabolism, structure of the muscle fibre to mechanisms of fatigue. The text is fully illustrated with appropriate photographs of fibres and drawings/graphs to illustrate biochemistry.


Sport Science students, physiotherapists. The book is intended to be of use to those interested in how muscles work, whether from the point of view of training for sport, treating physical problems and diseases, or understanding the basic cellular physiology and how the function interrelates with other body systems.
