3). These are actually sheathed bundles of smaller muscle fibers. Inside each of these tiny muscle fibers are smaller bundles of microscopically thin myofibrils (via Latin, from Greek, myo- “mouse/muscle”╯+╯fibril “little filament”). Within each myofibril are the moving parts that make contraction happen. First, let’s look at how the energy is distributed to these fibers, and then we’ll think about the mechanics going on within each fiber. Action potentials are distributed to groups of muscle fibers called motor units.

Electropalatography (EPG), which shows tongue-palate contact, has the highest temporal resolution of the imaging tools, but records only a few dozen points, giving it the lowest spatial resolution. Unlike imaging devices, point-tracking systems track the motion of a small number of fixed points or markers very accurately, giving them high spatial resolution for only those points, and they can often capture this information at 1000 or more times per second, giving them high temporal resolution as well.

According to the sliding filament model, muscles work because myoÂ� fibrils contain two very different kinds of filaments, each made of a different kind of protein molecule. The long, thin filaments are made up of the protein actin (you can think of the actin filament as the strong rope, the passive player in our analogy) and the short, flexible, thick filaments are made up of the protein myosin (you can think of the myosin filament as the active player – the one with the sticky hands that pull on the rope).
