Assignment 2: The Huxley Crossbridge Model
Review Slides 51-66 of Lecture 6: Myofilament Interaction Models on the numerical implementation in Microsoft Excel of the Huxley 1957 model developed by Rice and Yue that you can download here. Using the spreadsheet:
- Generate a classical force-velocity curve using the discretized Huxley ‘57 solver in Excel. Plot the result.
- Choose one of the model parameters to alter, and predict its effects on the force-velocity curve.
- Use the model implementation to test your hypothesis.
