Summary Introduction

To match: The M words with their defining features.

Explanation of Solution

Muscle: f. muscle cells bundled in connective tissue

Muscle is represented as the bunch of muscle cells bundled in connective tissue that help in movement of bones around joints by creating contraction and relaxation of the muscle.

Muscle twitch: d. motor unit response

A muscle twitch generates, when muscle contraction occurs due to multiple motor unit stimulation.

Muscle tension: e. force exerted by cross-bridges

Muscle tone is a force that exerted by the cross-bridge during muscle contraction. Muscle tone occurs when the contraction of muscle responds more easily to the stimulation that is required for muscle movements and in relaxation state muscle tone is absent.

Myosin: a. actin’s partner

During muscle contraction, myosin is a partner of actin...
