We have compiled a few movie clips to help demonstrate some of the methods used by our lab. We have two movies which show the use of laser diffraction to measure sarcomere lengths in vivo, and one that features eccentric contraction induced injury.

In vivo intraoperative sarcomere length measurements in the human forearm. In vivo sarcomere length measurements in fish while swimming.
Eccentric contraction protocol used to induce injury in the rat hindlimb. Ultrasound imaging of muscles during dynamic and isometric contractions


These videos demonstrate some of the techniques the NSMRC uses while investigating the properties of skeletal muscle.
