Smooth muscle contraction and relaxation.
Webb RC. Adv Physiol Educ 2003 - Review. PMID 14627618 Free article.
This brief review serves as a refresher on smooth muscle physiology for those educators who teach in medical and graduate courses of physiology. ...Removal of Ca(2+) from the cytosol and stimulation of myosin phosphatase initiate the process of smooth muscle relaxation....

Muscle Relaxation in Laparoscopic Surgery: What is the Evidence for Improved Operating Conditions and Patient Outcome? A Brief Review of the Literature.
Ledowski T. Surg Laparosc Endosc Percutan Tech 2015 - Review. PMID 26121545
Muscle relaxation may optimize laparoscopic operating conditions by preventing patient movement and achieving more intra-abdominal space for a given intra-abdominal insufflation pressure. ...However, the decision to utilize deeper than standard muscle relaxation should currently be based on a risk-benefit analysis for each individual patient. ...

Cellular mechanisms of muscle fatigue.
Fitts RH. Physiol Rev 1994 - Review. PMID 8295935
The Po declines, and the contraction and relaxation times are prolonged. Additionally, there is a decrease in the peak rate of tension development and decline and a reduced Vo. ...In the absence of muscle fiber damage, the prolonged relaxation time associated with fatigue causes the force-frequency curve to shift to the left, such that peak tensions are obtained at lower frequencies of stimulation. ...

Effects of progressive muscle relaxation on cerebral activity: An fMRI investigation.
Kobayashi S and Koitabashi K. Complement Ther Med 2016. PMID 27261979
OBJECTIVES: Progressive muscle relaxation (PMR) is one of the self-management relaxation techniques that can be used in the general population and patients with specific issues. ...Subsequently, a PMR session took place, during which muscle tension was reduced through a systematic procedure of tensing and relaxing of muscle groups combined with structured breathing. ...

Muscle contraction and relaxation-response time in response to on or off status of visual stimulus.
Yotani K, et al. J Physiol Anthropol 2014. PMID 25085278 Free PMC article.
BACKGROUND: It is unclear whether response time is affected by a stimulus cue, such as a light turned on or off, or if there are differences in response to these cues during a muscle contraction task compared with a muscle relaxation task. ...However, contraction response time or relaxation response time findings were opposite to this during the light-on status and light-off status: contraction response time became shorter in the light-on status than in the light-off status and relaxation response time became longer in the light-on status than in the light-off status. ...

Relaxation of diaphragm muscle.
Coirault C, et al. J Appl Physiol (1985) 1999 - Review. PMID 10517748 Free article.
Relaxation is the process by which, after contraction, the muscle actively returns to its initial conditions of length and load. ...The relative contribution of these mechanisms mainly depends on sarcomere length, muscle tension, and the intrinsic contractile function. ...

Comparison between the effects of muscle relaxation and support groups on the anxiety of nursing students: A randomized controlled trial.
Torabizadeh C, et al. Complement Ther Clin Pract 2016 - Clinical Trial. PMID 27863599
OBJECTIVE: To compare the effects of the two methods of muscle relaxation and support group on the anxiety levels of the nursing students. METHODS: In this randomized controlled trial, 150 nursing students who met the inclusion criteria were divided into three equal groups-muscle relaxation, support group, and control-using the permuted-block randomization method. ...

Mechanisms responsible for neuromuscular relaxation in the gastrointestinal tract.
Gallego D, et al. Rev Esp Enferm Dig 2016 - Review. PMID 26938735 Free article.
Muscle relaxation mechanisms are key for the understanding of physiological processes such as sphincter relaxation, gastric accommodation, or descending peristaltic reflex. ...NO diffuses across the cell membrane to bind its receptor, namely, guanylyl cyclase, and then activates a number of intracellular mechanisms that ultimately result in muscle relaxation. ...
