This book consists of about 15 review chapters all written by world-famous mainstream investigators. At the beginning of each chapter, the historical background of each research field is explained in a manner that attracts the interest of not only investigators specialized in the specific research field but also general readers interested in research fields of the life sciences.


Thus, the book is useful both for muscle investigators to survey the literature up to the present and for general readers to increase their interest in the muscle research field.

The scope of the book is knowledge about the current progress of research on the mechanism of muscle contraction and cell motility, both of which are essentially important in maintaining human and animal life. The readers will feel an atmosphere of “living science” in each respective research field.
