Activation patterns and length changes in hindlimb muscles of the bullfrog (Rana catesbeiana) during jumping
We measured the electromyographic (EMG) activity of seven hindlimb muscles during jumping in the bullfrog Rana catesbeiana. The semimembranosus, gracilis major, gluteus magnus, adductor magnus, cruralis and plantaris longus were consistently active approximately 20-40 ms before any perceptible movem...
