Muscle Contraction and Relaxation
This 3D medical animation opens with a view of the muscles of the leg. The camera zooms into the muscle to show the muscle fibers depicted as a bundle of bundles. The camera continues to zoom into a single fiber filament to show actin and myosin sliding past one another as the muscle contracts and relaxes.
