Prime movers are responsible for producing a specific movement, antagonists oppose a movement and synergists help prevent unwanted movements. Muscles contain free nerve endings (which mediate pain), Golgi tendon organs (which monitor the extent and force of contraction) and muscle spindles (which monitor changes in length). Muscle spindles (intrafusal fibres) are of two types (nuclear bag and nuclear chain fibres). Innervation of muscle spindles by g-motor neurons maintains their length in relation to the overall muscle length, keeping them taut throughout the full range of movement.
