Dear everyone

I am wondering if anyone could please tell me the definition of isotropic
property. I've seen in Neuromechancis of Human Movement (Enoka, 2004) that I
band is isotropic because it is singly refractive. Then, does it merely
refer to the appearance of the thin filaments and striated apperance of
whole muscle? Also and more importantly, is it this striation pattern of
muscle that led to the development of sliding filament theory? I would
appreciate so much if you could shed any light on this.

Best regards
