Week 2 – Laboratory
ATP and Muscle Fatigue
This week log in to eScienceLabs to review muscle anatomy and learn about muscle fatigue in the lab exercise. You will watch three animations: the muscular system, major muscles of the body, and muscle cell contraction. The pre-lab reading will reinforce the different groups of major muscles and how muscles enable movement of the body. The sliding filament theory, action potential concepts, function of motor neurons, twitch fibers, and force summation concepts will be reviewed again in the pre-lab readings. The lab exercise will allow you to learn how muscles behave when they are fatigued and the length of time it takes for this to occur.
For this assignment you must:
Your assignment must be formatted according to APA guidelines as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center.
Carefully review the Grading Rubric for the criteria that will be used to evaluate your assignment.
