A metabolic pathway that uses energy produced by oxidation of nutrients to produce ATP; capable of producing 15x more ATP than anaerobic ATP
Deals with mm contraction: Neurological stimulus --> release of acetylcholine --> stim. release of Calcium --> bonds with troponin and tropomyosin (2 proteins w/in actin) --> allows Actin-Adenosine triphosphate (ATP) to react with myosin-Adenosine triphosphate --> Produces ENERGY
Mechanoreceptors: Provide info. about jt. displacement & amplitude of mvt, pressure, stretch, pain. TYPES:
- TYPE I: Ruffini Mechanoreceptors: Respond slowly to static jt. position;
- TYPE II: Pacini Mechanoreceptors: Adapt to changes in jt. position: ligament tension, velocity of mvt.;
- TYPE III: Active at "extremes" of jt. motion, i.e., those that produce injury;
- TYPE IV: Free Nerve Endings: Pain & Inflammation
