In the regular laboratory work in muscle-nerve physiology, it was noted that records obtained by subjecting frog muscles to various ranges of temperature did not exactly agree as to positions of maxima contractions with statements found in the texts, especially that of Howell. At the suggestion of Dr. F. M. Baldwin a fairly large series of experiments has been carried out to determine the relative positions of maxima contractions of the gastrocnemius muscle of the frog under varying temperature conditions, and to compare the results thus obtained with those of other investigators.
