Caption: A graph of multiple impulse muscle twitch charting the stimulus, latent period, contraction, wave summation and relaxation. Should a second stimulus arrive before the period of relaxation has ended, a second, more powerful twitch, or contraction, occurs. This is called the summation of twitches, or wave summation. A muscle producing tension during rapid cycles of contraction and relaxation is said to be in incomplete tetanus. (with titles).
