In species where movements between radius and ulna are limited, these muscles are rudimentary. Included in this group are; (a) Supinators: Brachioradialis Supinator (b) Pronators: Pronator quadratus Pronator teres (xvii) Muscles of the carpal joint These are long slender muscles causing extension and flexion of the carpal joint.

Since most vertebrate muscles are activated in an “all-or-none” manner, either fully switched on or switched off with no part activation, variation in contractile force occurs as a result of the recruitment of different members of motor units. The number of fibers supplied by a motor neuron depends on the type of movements performed by each muscle. The fewer the number of fibers supplied by a motor neuron, as in the extraocular muscles of the eye of vertebrates and hand muscles in primates, the more precise the movements such muscles produce.
