    An interactive, menu-driven and easy to use program, which simulates experiments on the frog sciatic nerve - gastrocnemius muscle preparation to illustrate physiological properties of skeletal muscle.

    Experiments include:

    • stimulus voltage/response relationships,
    • summation,
    • tetanus,
    • length-tension relationship,
    • action of curare.

    Real experimental data is used to generate simulated muscle contractions, which are displayed in a form comparable to that of an oscilloscope. Each experiment is prefaced by introductory text, and experiment guide and includes assignments (MCQ, true-false, data interpretation) for students to complete which are designed to reinforce underlying physiological principles, and test accuracy of data collection and data interpretation.
