Would you tell me whether Iíve chosen the proper meaning of the expression in bold in the following sentence?
When you fall asleep, muscle tone almost disappears.
tone = the elastic tension of living muscles, arteries, etc. that facilitate response to stimuli
Thanks for your efforts.
Yes, that's correct. In general sense, "tone" means firmness or hardness of muscles.
