Figure 5: Frequency of values for characteristics depending of the distribution of fast and slow fibres.

From: Rules of tissue packing involving different cell types: human muscle organization

Figure 5

The histograms show the frequency of values for several characteristics related to the distribution of fibres type from 10,000 randomizations of the fast and slow fibres. Blue circles show the value of the characteristic for the real distribution of fast and slow cells in the muscle. (A,D) Histogram for the characteristic “slow neighbours of slow cells” in QA and BA respectively. The real value is similar to the median of random values. (B,E) Histogram for the characteristic “deviation area of fast cells in QA and BA respectively. (C,F) Histogram for the characteristic “average area of slow cells” in QA and BA respectively. In the cases (C,D,E) the real value is lower than the random values.
