MUSCLE is an EC-sponsored Network of Excellence that aims at establishing and fostering closer collaboration between research groups in multimedia datamining and machine learning.
In particular, MUSCLE researchers are developing software tools and research strategies to enable users to move away from labor-intensive case-by-case modelling of individual applications, and allow them to take full advantage of generic adaptive and self-learning solutions that need minimal supervision.
MUSCLE has launched several SHOWCASING projects destined to produce higlhy visual demonstrations of the Multimedia expertise of the different teams involed in the Network of Excellence.

  Your Multitalented Muscles
Muscles are all made of the same material, a type of elastic tissue (sort of like the material in a rubber band).
Smooth muscles are sometimes also called involuntary muscles and they are usually in sheets, or layers, with one layer of muscle behind the other.
Muscles in your neck and the top part of your back aren't as large, but they are capable of some pretty amazing things: Try rotating your head around, back and forth, and up and down to feel the power of the muscles in your neck.

 Muscle Biochemistry
The biochemical basis of muscle activity is related to the enzymatic and physical properties of actin, myosin, and the accessory proteins that constitute the thin and thick filaments.
The molecular event underlying muscle contraction is the regulated binding of the myosin headpieces to actin thin filaments, followed by rapid myosin conformational changes about its hinge points with the bound actin being translocated toward the M line.

 SIU SOM Histology SSB
Each individual skeletal muscle fiber extends over much of the length of the muscle in which it resides (up to many centimeters), with a uniform diameter that is typically around 50 ┬Ám.
Each muscle spindle consists of an encapsulated cluster of small striated muscle fibers ("intrafusal muscle fibers") with somewhat unusual structure (e.g., nuclei may be concentrated in a cluster near the middle of the fiber's length).
The endomysium permits the forces of contraction to be passed from each muscle fiber toward the ends of the muscle where the fibrocollagenous tissue of endomysium, perimysium and epimysium join together to form tendon, fascia, or direct attachment to bone.

 Muscle Cramp
Although the exact cause of muscle cramps is unknown (idiopathic), some researchers believe inadequate stretching and muscle fatigue leads to abnormalities in mechanisms that control muscle contraction.
Muscle cramps are very common among endurance athletes (i.e., marathon runners and triathletes) and older people who perform strenuous physical activities.
Muscle cramps may be a minor part of many conditions such as Lou Gehrig's disease (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis), spinal nerve irritation or compression (radiculopathy), hardening of the arteries, narrowing of the spinal canal (stenosis), thyroid disease, chronic infections and cirrhosis of the liver.

 Muscle Cramps — Information on this common condition of the muscle from MedicineNet.com   (Site not responding. Last check: )
Often a muscle that is cramping feels harder than normal to the touch or may even show visible signs of twitching.
A muscle (or even a few fibers of a muscle) that involuntarily (without consciously willing it) contracts is called a "spasm." If the spasm is forceful and sustained, it becomes a cramp.
Involuntary muscles of the various organs (uterus, blood vessel wall, intestinal tract, bile and urine passages, bronchial tree, etc.) are also subject to cramps.

 Human Physiology - Muscle
Some muscles (skeletal muscles) will not contract unless stimulated by neurons; other muscles (smooth and cardiac) will contract without nervous stimulation but their contraction can be influenced by the nervous system.
Skeletal muscles are usually attached to bone by tendons composed of connective tissue.
As a result, in a relaxed muscle, there is a very high concentration of calcium in the SR and a very low concentration in the sarcoplasm (and, therefore, among the myofibrils and myofilaments).

 Muscle   (Site not responding. Last check: )
Muscle cells are those that generate tension (force) and when they activate (a.k.a., contract) they shorten and pull whatever is attached to their opposite ends closer together.
This simultaneous shortening of muscle fibers (cells) due to the shortening of myofibril organelles is the cause of muscle shortening.
Muscles of the shoulders and arms are not constantly active but are used intermittently, usually for short periods of time, to produce large amounts of tension such as in lifting and throwing.

Biceps: when the muscle shortens, points (a) insertion and (b) origin are brought closer together and the arm is bent, or flexed at the elbow.
In the second figure, the hamstring muscles are relaxed when the knee is bent, particularly as the hip is further extended; the gluteus maximus are thereby more exclusively involved in hip extension.

 Muscles
Smooth muscle is found in the walls of all the hollow organs of the body (except the heart).
Nerves of the autonomic branch of the nervous system lead to both smooth and cardiac muscle, but their effect is one of moderating the rate and/or strength of contraction.
Cellular respiration not only is required to meet the ATP needs of a muscle engaged in prolonged activity (thus causing more rapid and deeper breathing), but is also required afterwards to enable the body to resynthesize glycogen from the lactic acid produced earlier (deep breathing continues for a time after exercise is stopped).

Muscles are the "engine" that your body uses to propel itself.
