The methodology adopted for correlation was placement of consecutive slides side by side caudally and cranially and comparing all the fascicles in both sections on the basis of correlation parameters.
The increased muscle fascicle diameter and cross sectional area may be related to increased muscle fiber diameter and area as muscle fascicle is composed of muscle fibers (Seidman, 2015).
To investigate passive resistive torque and muscle fascicles extensibility, the subjects' ankle was passively rotated from the neutral position until the maximal dorsiflexion, previously determined, at 5 [degrees].[s.sup.-1]; a slow angular velocity was set in order to avoid the myotatic reflex (Blazevich et al.

In the "water" set of images, the fascicles and the perineurium appeared hyperintense and we assumed that the overall fascicle volume would be hyperintense over a dark background including the epineurial collagen and fat.
Outcome measures included fascicle length, pennation angle and muscle thickness.
Poorly formed fascicles of plump smooth muscle cells with focal clear cell change and adjacent thick-walled, tortuous blood vessels with smooth muscle cells emanating from the vessel walls (hematoxylin-eosin, original magnification X10).
Muscle fascicle length and pennation angle (i.e., the angle in which the fascicles insert themselves into the aponeuroses of the muscle) are two architectural parameters that can influence how a muscle generates force.
