Muscular System

The muscular system allows humans to move. Muscles also provide strength, balance and heat.

The skeletal system has a few important jobs. One is to keep us  from becoming blobs of human tissue similar to jellyfish but  without the water. The other is to protect vital organs such as our  brains, heart, lungs, liver. But they have another role which is to  create a form on which...
The Skeletal muscle vend arms and legs. It also closes a fist.
Drugs can act as agonist or antagonist to regulate a process or  function of cellular/chemical process.
Fibrous connective tissues are found in cartilage, ligaments, and tendons. Cartilage prevents adjacent bone ends from grinding together during movement, tendons attach skeletal muscles to the bones and hold the bones in close proximity, and ligaments are similar to tendons but have the elasticity...
Muscles contract when they receive nerve signals from the brain,  telling them to put filaments in action. The thin ones slide past  the thick, shortening the sarcomere (this is a special part of the  muscle).
The internal tendon bulk is thought to contain no nerve fibres, but  the epitenon and paratenon contain nerve endings, while Golgi tendon organs  are present at the junction between tendon and muscle.
if the muscle are not used they become weaker and smaller than  normal size ,but this problem is reversible by more physical  exercises until the muscles aren't damaged. but if the denervation  or injury occur to the muscle the weakness could be persistent and  atrophy may occur.
Atrophy will occur, and muscles will decrease
usually about 1 week to 6 weeks but it can be much longer depending  on how bad you pulled it
1. Even when a muscle appears to be at rest, a certain amount of sustained contraction is occurring in its fibers. This is called muscle tone. (Muscle tone is a response to nerve impulses that originate repeatedly from the spinal cord and stimulate a few muscle fibers.) A tetanic contraction is...
Elevation, depression, and retraction of scapula. Upper is also involved in extension of the head.
the most important organs are upper and lower limbs.
In short, the three pathways are: - Regeneration of ATP using creatine phosphate. It breaks down lending its phosphate molecule to regenerate ATP. - Regeneration of ATP through glycolysis, i.e. using glucose and glycogen stored in your blood and muscles. - Regeneration of ATP using the aerobic...
The skin has 6 basic functions, including assisting the immune system, regulating the body temp., providing the body with Vitamin D, excreting small amounts of waste, retarding water loss by diffusion from deeper tissues and housing sensory receptors, besides the basic function of protecting your...
Vitamins and nutrients are stored proving energy to all tissue
Yes. One major group of neck muscles supports and provides movement  for the head.   Other groups of muscles in the neck and shoulders allow movement of  the arms.   The neck muscles also coordinate with the muscles of the jaw.
Many reasons:   Putting too much exertions on weak muscles   working out or lifting wrong   heavier: therefore more strain on muscles
Hey! I hope you're feeling better   It is recommended that you avoid intense activity until you have  fully recovered, and consume NSAIDs (ie. Ibuprofen and naproxen) to  speed up the recovery process. You are also encouraged to apply  cold packs to your shoulder for around 3-4 times a day....
acetylcholine is broken down by enzyme acetylcholesterase, when it's supply is no longer renewed, a calcium pump removes calcium ions from the muscle fiber and returns them to the cisternae of the sarcoplasmic reticulum. Tropomyosin then blocks the linkage site and actin slides back to it's resting...
It is the Rubrospinal Tract. It's main role is the mediation of voluntary movement. It is responsible for large muscle moments such as the arms and legs as well as fine muscle movement.
your tongue. is a skeletal muscle because you move it.
First the respiratory system retrieves oxygen. Then the circulatory system delivers the oxygen to the muscles. The brain uses the nervous system to send electrical impulses to stimulate different muscles to contract. Muscles require oxygen and glucose to function. The circulatory system delivers...
they both move at the same times with movement in rythem

The learned activity's response time changed while the simple patellar reflex stayed the same.
Mitochondria - to produce the ATP needed for muscle contraction
Intramuscular (IM) injections are commonly given in one of three  muscles. The muscles are vastus lateralis muscle, the deltoid  muscle, and the ventrogluteal muscle.
The acetylcholine diffuses across the synapse and binds to and activates nicotinic acetylcholine receptors on the motor end plate of the muscle cell. Activation of the nicotinic receptor opens its intrinsic sodium/potassium channel, causing sodium to rush in and potassium to trickle out.
Organs are located inside your body and are responsible for helping  your body to function. For example, your liver is an organ. Muscles  are also located in the body and they are responsible for movement  and strength. They help you move around.
The muscles in your face don't connect to the bone like most other muscles, Facial muscles attach under the skin which allows you to make all types of facial expressions.
lay flat on ur back with little ice under u and just let it sooth ur muscles
The muscle cell relaxes and returns passively to its resting length
  == Radiactive carbon in our body ==   Labelled carbon enters living system through photosynthesis alongwith normal cabon in the form of carbohydrates. When we eat them, our body converts them in glycoproteins found in our muscles and all parts of body.
Your brain sends a signal to the joint in your elbow.
In push up you use your triceps muscle and serratus anteriormuscle. It is such a powerful muscle that you can say that you pushthe earth away form your body. (Thanks to the great scientistEinstein, for his theory of relativity.)
will get back to you after asking my professor
The deltoid is a three-headed muscle that caps the shoulder. The three heads are called the anterior, posterior, and the lateral.

there are muscular contractions in the oesophagus which help to move the food this rhythmic movement is known as PERISTALSIS
Rotator cuff is composed of four muscles. These muscles keep thehead of the humerus in proximity to the scapula bone. Any force,that tries to pull away the head of the humerus will cause injuryto the rotator cuff muscles. Any body can get such injury.
An electric field is responsibly for the movement of DNA in gel  electrophoresis. The net negative charge of the DNA is drawn to the  positive charge of the anode.
concentric contraction is atype of muscle contraction which the muscle shortens while genrating aforceThe muscle shortens to produce movement.A muscle contraction in which shortening occurs.
It is a combination of muscles that involve the Glutinous maximus along with the erectile tissue and the pubic hairs. Make sure you don't get a hairball
Because the muscles that we use to move ears are used by other animals to help with detecting interesting sounds (like when you see a dog's ears twitch when they hear something). Since those muscles aren't serving our bodies in that sense, and we really only use those muscles to wiggle ears for fun,...
A better question might be which nerves innervate muscles in the arm, or for a specific muscle what is its innervation. Some of the upper extremity (arm) muscles & their innervations from proximal to distal (close to the body to far from the body) include: pectoralis major - lateral and medial...
There are several. The major ones include the quadriceps, hamstrings, tibialis anterior, peroneus, extensor digitorum longus, gastrocnemius, soleus, adductors, sartorius, and gracilis.
5% of an individual's total muscle power is used at any given time. This is why you receive a sudden rush of adrenaline, as if you can perform "superhuman feats."
Both aid in the expansion and relaxation of lungs.
  In clams, it's used to open and close the shell.  
A pair of large neck muscles called sternocleidomastoids is  responsible for turning the head.
Are movement and strength.
Creatine! or There is a Supplement called Black Hole by Controlled Labs that will make you hungry and want to eat 24/7
Yes. You will have to eat more food since the metabolism is high. If one has a high metabolism, most likely they are a "hard gainer", which means it will be hard to gain muscle if you dont have a diet specifically designed for bulking/gaining weight.
the muscles produce movement through contraction and relaxation. they can be skeletal muscles, smooth muscles or cardiac muscles skeletal muscles are voluntary muscles,that we use for locomotion and other activities.we can control their actions. they are straited muscles. smooth musles are the...
One is a build up of lactic acid, a product of anaerobic respiration which gives you cramps. Anaerobic respiration is making energy without oxygen. This happens when you overwork your muscles.
yes there is a muscle there, it is called the prostate or the male g-spot. it controls your urine flow as well as your ejaculation.
your brain and heart muscles, plus your tounge and face muscles. (your heart is technechly an organ) p.s. I know I spelled a lot of words wrong in this answer (see slashed through words) so don't spell them the way I did
dial 911. you coul be having a heart attack!
They give it small electric shocksi am thinck thats wat it the awnser is

It means that a person who doesn't have muscles because it is lazy and doesn't get energy .................................. In medicine, a ghost muscle is a functional fiber constructed of non-muscle tissues that takes the place of a damaged or missing muscle. Apparently this is a very new or rare...
Involuntary muscles (such as the heart, the sphincters, etc.) are traditionally smooth muscle.
