Caption: The phases of muscle twitch properties are mapped on a graph. When an action potential reaches the axon of the motor neuron, a chain of events begins which culminates in what's called a muscle twitch. Essentially, this is a very brief contraction of the muscle fibers in a muscle unit in response to a single stimulus. Every twitch has three distinct phases: the latent peri'e period of contracti'd the period of relaxation.
