Dear Biomch-l readers:

We are developing a computer model of the head-neck musculoskeletal system. I am looking for information about the parameters of the neck muscles. I hope that someone out there could help me with the following question:

Is there any other published data, besides the book "Multiple Muscle
Systems" by Winters and Woo, about the muscle length, muscle fiber length,
muscle PCSA (physiologic cross-section area), pennation angle and the
tendon length of the neck muscles?

I would be grateful if you could send me any information that you might have, and I will gladly post a summary of the responses.
