A robust neuromuscular system protects rat and human skeletal muscle from sarcopenia


Figure 7. Neuromuscular dysfunction correlates with skeletal muscle atrophy in elderly men. (A,C) Graphs showing the correlation between muscle cross-sectional area (CSA) and CMAP negative peak amplitude in vastus lateralis (A) and tibialis anterior (C) from adult (i.e 20-35 years) and elderly (i.e >65 years) men. (B,D) CMAP negative peak amplitude and muscle size in vastus lateralis (B) and tibialis anterior (D). For all graphs n=9-18 per group. * p<0.05 ** p<0.01 *** p<0.001 with a one-way ANOVA test.
