Muscluar System

Muscular system

All the muscles of the body collectively, especially the voluntary skeletal muscles. The muscular system is responsible for the movement of the human body. And muscles are attached to the bones of the skeletal system.

muscle cell

A muscle cell is a special kind of cell that makes up an organism's muscle tissues. The muscles allow independent movement and regulate biological functions such as digestion and heartbeat.

Muscle tissue

Muscle tissue is a soft tissue that composes muscles in animal bodies, and gives rise to muscles' ability to contract. muscle tissue is composed of cells that have the special ability to shorten or contract in order to produce movement of the body parts.

the heart

A hollow muscular organ that pumps the blood through the circulatory system by rhythmic contraction and dilation. the heart is one of the most important organs in the body

organism

an individual animal, plant, or single-celled life form.

organ system

The muscular system is an organ system consisting of skeletal, smooth and cardiac muscles. It permits movement of the body, maintains posture, and circulates blood throughout the body.

contracting and relaxed muscles (extra credit)

This occurs when the force generated by the muscle exceeds the load opposing its contraction. During a concentric contraction, a muscle is stimulated to contract according to the sliding filament theory.

homeostasis

The muscular system contributes to maintaining homeostasis by working with other body systems to regulate body temperature and dilate or constrict blood vessels close to the skin's surface. It also keeps the same temperature because when muscles contract they release heat to raise your body temperature. If your muscles are not working correctly then you might have duchenne muscular dystrophy. It will eventually cause all of the muscles to stop working and stop your muscles from contracting to release heat.

interaction

The muscular system works well with other systems in the body. Like most systems in the body, the muscular system does not work in isolation. the most obvious systems that interact with the muscular system are the skeletal system, nervous system and the circulatory system. the skeletal system works with the muscular system by having muscles connected to the skeleton so when the muscles contract and relax it moves the bones. the nervous system works with the muscular system by having receptors in muscles to provide the brain with information about body position and movement. the circulatory system works with the muscular system by having the circulatory system provide the fuel in the form of glucose and oxygen so that the muscles can do their work.
