  1. The different types of fibre arrangements are
    • longitudinal (e.g. rectus abdominus)
    • quadrate (e.g. rhomboids)
    • triangular (e.g. pectoralis major)
    • circular (e.g. orbicularis oric)
    • fusiform (e.g. brachialis)
    • unipenniform (e.g. tibialis posterior)
    • bipenniform (e.g. rectus femoris)
    • multipenniform (e.g. deltoid)
  2. muscles are named by
    • their direction (rectus, transverse, oblique)
    • their size (maximus, minimus, longus, brevis)
    • their shape (serratus, quadratus)
    • their action (flexors, exstensors, levator, adductors)
    • the number of origins (biceps, triceps)
    • location (temporalis, femoris, brachii)
    • their origin and insertion (sternocleidomastiod)
  3. fusiform
    • round, spindle-shaped, tapered at both ends
    • e.g. brachialis, radiobrachialis
  4. unipenniform
    • short, parallel fibres originating only from one side of the tendon
    • e.g. tibialis posterior
  5. bipenniform
    • parallel fibres originating on both sides of a central tendon
    • looks like a feather
    • e.g. rectus femoris
  6. multipenniform
    • several tendons with muscle fibres running between
    • e.g. deltoid
