Dear netters,

Some weeks ago I posted a message asking for information about
fiber composition of intrinsic and extrinsic of the human hand. I would
like to thank all you who have replied me

This is the literature:

Long, C. Intrinsic-Extrinsic Muscle Control of the Fingers.
The Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery (50-A);5: 973-984, July 1968,.

Biomechanics book by Winters. Look in the appendix.

Johnson, M.A., Polgar, J., Weightman, D., and Appleton, D. (1973) Data on
the distribution of fibre types in thirty-six human muscles: An autopsy
study. J. Neurological Sciences 18: 111-129.

Tanaka et al (1984) "A comparison of the mechanical properties of the
first dorsal interosseous in the dominant and non-dominant hand".Eur. J.
App. Physiol. 53: 17-20

Thank you
