There were two important findings: the first was that all the fibres from a single motor unit were of the same histochemical type; the second was that the histochemical characteristics were intimately related to the physiological contractile properties of the unit.

Indeed, tonic fibres rarely produce any tension in response to a single stimulus. Tonic fibres are sometimes known as slow fibres, but they should not be confused with the slow twitch fibres described below. The remainder of this chapter will be concerned only with twitch fibres (Lewis, 1981). 3 Physiological investigation of the motor unit Territory and size of motor units In animal experiments individual motor units can be stimulated electrically via their motor axon in teased-out strands from ventral root filaments, or by microelectrodes inserted into the motoneurone cell body in the ventral hom of the spinal cord.
