The Muscular System

Levels of Organization-Skeletal Muscle


Interaction Between The Muscle System and the Endocrine System

The Muscular System and the Endocrine System work together to release glucose to your body. The process of releasing glucose occurs when your muscles need energy and a signal is sent to your brain. The signal tells your brain (a part of the endocrine system) to release insulin from your pancreas, which creates more energy for your muscles. The brain also controls the contractions of the skeletal muscle.

Interaction Between The Muscle System and the Skeletal System

The Muscle System and the Skeletal System work together through a series of pulses and signals communicated between the brain and skeletal muscles. In order to move, the skeletal muscles contract. When they contract, the skeletal system, or bones, then moves with the muscle.

The muscular system helps generate heat. Without the muscular system the body would freeze to death. Smooth Muscles: The smooth muscles are helping us maintain homeostasis internally. Cardiac Muscles: Without the cardiac muscles (the heart) we would not even be able to survive. Homeostasis has many functions in the heart, from heart rate and even the delivery of blood and oxygen, homeostasis has many jobs. Without the blood and oxygen delivery the muscles would fail. Homeostasis in the muscular system includes maintaining nutrients and maintaining blood pressure.

If the muscular system didn’t work properly we would end up freezing to death because our muscles wouldn’t be able to produce heat.

If there is a break in homeostasis you could end up experiencing frost bite which can be pretty painful.
