WN8: Muscle (video download)


The remarkable spatial arrangement of the macromolecular actin and myosin filaments endow muscle fibers with their specialized structure and concomitant ability to shorten in length, giving us the ability to move our body parts and our very selves. Dr. Moran illustrates the histology (or cytology) of skeletal muscle, cardiac muscle, and smooth muscle with diagrams, beautiful light micrographs photographed with Zeiss plan apochromatic optics, and high resolution electron micrographs.
