Medical Definition of Twitch muscle

1. Striated muscle innervated by a single motoneuron and having an electrically excitable membrane that exhibits an all or none response (c.f. Tonic muscle): in mammals almost all skeletal muscles are twitch muscles. Physiologists often divide muscles into fast and slow twitch types, the fast twitch muscles being associated with fast motor units.
