Representative twitch and tetanic contractions from young adult control, young adult radiated, old control, and old radiated rat. These examples are representative of group findings, with smaller tetanic and twitch contraction magnitudes (mN), longer CT (ms) and longer HDT (ms) in radiated rats. Age effects are also demonstrated here with longer CTs and HDTs, as well as reduced twitch forces in the old rats.
