In this report I review certain aspects of the research on the latency relaxation (LR), the minute relaxation of a stimulated muscle that occurs during the latter half of the latent period, i.e., just prior to the onset of contraction (e.g., Sandow, 1944). The first part of my discussion will be historical, dealing with the early, mostly descriptive work on the LR, and then I shall present a more analytically oriented attempt to indicate the significance of the LR in relation to certain aspects of the response of a muscle to stimulation.
