Figure 2: Histological and electrophysiological differences between the denervation- and disuse-induced atrophy models. Although both models exhibited muscular atrophy, the denervation model showed a form of group atrophy of myofibers (yellow arrowhead), whereas the disuse model exhibited a diffused and sporadic atrophic pattern (a). The denervation model exhibited an immediate deceleration of amplitude in the electromyogram, whereas the disuse model exhibited a gradual deceleration of amplitude in the electromyogram (b).
