Abstract:
1. The anatomy, innervation and physiological properties of the mesothoracic flexor tibiae muscle were investigated. The muscle was found to have three functionally separate parts; the proximal, middle and distal flexors. Each part receives some axons which are common with the other parts and some which innervate exclusively this region of the muscle. By recording at the same time from the nerve branches and muscle fibres of the three parts of the flexor muscle the total number of axons was found to be 16 and their innervation pattern on the muscle was established. These axons can be distinguished as six fasts, three intermediate, three slows, two inhibitors and two DUM cells.
