The skeletal system has a few important jobs. One is to keep usfrom becoming blobs of human tissue similar to jellyfish butwithout the water. The other is to protect vital organs such as ourbrains, heart, lungs, liver. But they have another role which is tocreate a form on which everything else can...
The Skeletal muscle vend arms and legs. It also closes a fist.
Drugs can act as agonist or antagonist to regulate a process orfunction 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 pastthe thick, shortening the sarcomere (this is a special part of themuscle).
The internal tendon bulk is thought to contain no nerve fibres, butthe 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 thannormal size ,but this problem is reversible by more physicalexercises until the muscles aren't damaged. but if the denervationor injury occur to the muscle the weakness could be persistent andatrophy may occur.
Atrophy will occur, and muscles will decrease
usually about 1 week to 6 weeks but it can be much longer dependingon how bad you pulled it
There are over 700 muscles that make up the muscular system butthey are broken down into 3 distinct types. These 3 types areskeletal muscles, cardiac muscles, and heart muscles.
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...
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...
Yes. One major group of neck muscles supports and provides movementfor the head. Other groups of muscles in the neck and shoulders allow movement ofthe arms. The neck muscles also coordinate with the muscles of the jaw.
The unit of muscular contraction is the sarcomere. Put that into your address bar and much will be revealed of importance about muscular systems. True, but I don't see how it's the most important part. There are other parts the system would not work without.
Of course you needs muscles to breakdance, since you need muscles to move. Breakdance focuses on your core, biceps, triceps, shoulders, back, and legs.
Many reasons: Putting too much exertions on weak muscles working out or lifting wrong heavier: therefore more strain on muscles
You cannot directly tone muscles, nor target directly the toning ofsingle muscles. Getting that "toned" look comes from being in acaloric deficit (eating slightly under maintenance calories),coupled with a good weightlifting regime. Unfortunately, somepeople store more of their body fat in different...
Hey! I hope you're feeling better It is recommended that you avoid intense activity until you havefully recovered, and consume NSAIDs (ie. Ibuprofen and naproxen) tospeed up the recovery process. You are also encouraged to applycold packs to your shoulder for around 3-4 times a day. There isnot much...
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
basket ball netball fooball and hourse riding and rugby tennis
The learned activity's response time changed while the simple patellar reflex stayed the same.
Mitochondria - to produce the ATP needed for muscle contraction
If it is spindle shaped, it is smooth (visceral) muscle tissue. If it is H or Y-shaped then it is cardiac muscle tissue. And, if it is rod shaped and has multiple nuclei, then it is skeletal muscle tissue. Another characteristic of both cardiac and muscle tissue is that it is striated with darker...
Intramuscular (IM) injections are commonly given in one of threemuscles. The muscles are vastus lateralis muscle, the deltoidmuscle, 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 helpingyour body to function. For example, your liver is an organ. Musclesare also located in the body and they are responsible for movementand 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.
Yes, in some point. Go ask a boy and he will answer you in a way that a girl would not. Technically, most of them(boys) have personality which is called 'boyish'... that includes the way they act. If a girl is hyper... expect HYPER.
lay flat on ur back with little ice under u and just let it sooth ur muscles
Muscle fibercontraction is a complex process involving a number of cell partsand chemical substances that result in the sliding movement of theactin and myosin filaments and causes a contraction. A myosinfilament is composed of protein strands with globular ends calledcross-bridges that extend...
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.)
Facts about the two types of "fast twitch muscle fibers" includeall of these statements: A more power and strength B fatigues faster and longer recovery time C Type IIa endurance but less strength D Type IIb strength but less endurance
The deltoid is a three-headed muscle that caps the shoulder. The three heads are called the anterior, posterior, and the lateral.
You should do gentle stretches before you walk or run or exercise. You must do this every day. .
The muscle tissue can move a body skeleton by contracting and relaxing.
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 gelelectrophoresis. The net negative charge of the DNA is drawn to thepositive charge of the anode.
concentric contraction is atype of muscle contraction which the muscle shortens while genrating aforce The 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."

In clams, it's used to open and close the shell..
A pair of large neck muscles called sternocleidomastoids isresponsible 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...
You should not try to lose 5 pounds in one night, it would not be safe. How much you have to run in order to lose 5 pounds depends on how you run and what you eat, check in with your doctor to find out what she recommends.
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.
