Originally published in 1928 as part of the Cambridge Comparative Physiology series, The Comparative Physiology of Muscular Tissue examines whether all muscular contractions use essentially the same processes regardless of the type of muscle in question. Ritchie uses an isolated muscle from a frog to investigate whether the chemical and physical causes of a simple muscle twitch can be responsible for the movements of all muscles. The Comparative Physiology of Muscular Tissue will be of value to anyone with an interest in the history of science or comparative physiology.
