This lesson includes detailed instructions for the frog preparation procedures necessary for BSL PRO lessons A02, A03, and A04.
To become familiar with the procedure for preparing the frog gastrocnemius muscle and its sciatic nerve (pithing, skin removal, muscle, and nerve isolation) in order to complete subsequent lessons with the following objectives.
Tasks Performed by the Student
- Pith the frog
- Remove the skin
- Isolate the sciatic nerve and attach it to the transducer
- Isolate the gastrocnemius muscle and attach it to the transducer
- Dissect the sciatic nerve
