How the Muscular System works with the Nervous System

1. The brain helps your muscles move.

2. These 2 systems work together because you usually need to think before you move.

3.The neurons of the nerves system are connected to most of the cells in your muscular system.

4. Muscles are under control by your autonomic nervous system [ANS].

5. Reflexes cause an involuntary movement of the muscular system.
