Anatomy and Physiology- Henry Cox
In this image we are able to see how the form of the skin helps it perform one of its primary functions. One of the most important functions of the skin is protection from outside contaminants. The close-knit surface of the skin helps to form a protective barrier against the outside.Picture Credit: http://www.pennmedicine.org/encyclopedia/em_PrintImage.aspx?gcid=8912&ptid=2

This picture helps to illustrate the form and function of skeletal muscle tissue. By contracting and relaxing, muscles perform our voluntary movements. These muscles are designed and placed on the bones in such a way that the movement of the muscles incites the movement of our body.Picture Credit: http://www.hubres.info/skeletal-muscles-diagram-2/tendon-epimysium-microscopic-anatomy-of-skeletal-muscle/
Ligaments are connective tissues that connect bone to bone and help to form joints. This picture shows the ligaments of the knee and clearly demonstrate the connection from bone to bone. Also, ligaments are designed to limit or prevent movements altogether, which once again is shown clearly in this picture. The ligaments on the side prevents excess movement, which could potentially cause injury.Picture Credit: http://sportskneetherapy.com/knee-ligaments/

The brain is the source of most of the signals moving around our body. The brain controls all the functions of the body and this is made possible by its design and the rest of the nervous system.

The nervous system is powered by the brain and allows the extremities of our body to communicate with the brain, which allows us to feel and send signals to every part of the body.
