-Gross and microscopic anatomy of smooth, skeletal and cardiac muscle.
-Properties and functions of skeletal muscles
-Structure of skeletal muscle
-Structure and function of uscle fibers, (i.e. actin, myosin, titin)
-Structure and function of a sarcomere
-Stages of muscular contraction starting from the neuromuscular junction.
-Muscle twitches and typed of contractions.
-Skeletal muscle metabolism overview.
