Transcript

  • 1. Muscular System Life Science, Ms. Wells
  • 2. Function: Movement <ul><li>Work with skeletal system to move body </li></ul><ul><li>contract = shorten/tighten </li></ul><ul><li>Muscles PULL bones, never push </li></ul><ul><li>muscle cells are called muscle fibers </li></ul><ul><li>Often work in pairs/groups for one movement </li></ul>
  • 3. Function: Body Temperature <ul><li>HOMEOSTASIS: Muscle contraction releases heat to keep your body the right temperature </li></ul><ul><li>Shivers: fast muscle contractions to raise body temperature </li></ul>
  • 4. Function: Maintain Posture <ul><li>Most muscles always hold a little bit of contraction/tension </li></ul><ul><li>Tension = “muscle tone” </li></ul><ul><li>Keep you standing up straight (posture) </li></ul>
  • 5. Types of Muscle <ul><li>Skeletal Muscle </li></ul><ul><li>Smooth Muscle </li></ul><ul><li>Cardiac Muscle </li></ul><ul><li>Skeletal = you control it (called VOLUNTARY) </li></ul><ul><li>Smooth/Cardiac = you don’t control it (called INVOLUNTARY) </li></ul>
  • 6. Skeletal Muscle <ul><li>Attached to your skeleton </li></ul><ul><li>Voluntary </li></ul><ul><li>Structure = bundles of fibers </li></ul><ul><li>Examples: quadriceps, biceps, triceps, abs, etc. </li></ul>
  • 7. Skeletal Muscle: Bundles of Fibers
  • 8. Smooth Muscle <ul><li>Inside organs </li></ul><ul><li>Involuntary (automatic movements) </li></ul><ul><li>Shorter fibers than skeletal muscle </li></ul><ul><li>Example: pushes food through stomach and intestines </li></ul>
  • 9. Cardiac Muscle <ul><li>Fibers have branched shape (like tree branches) that form webs and layers </li></ul><ul><li>Make up the heart <3 </li></ul>
  • 10. Cardiac Muscle: Branched Fibers
  • 11. Muscle Types: Fiber Shapes
  • 12. Tendons <ul><li>Attach muscles to bones </li></ul><ul><li>White skinny part of muscle </li></ul><ul><li>“Gristle” </li></ul>
  • 13. Muscles and Exercise <ul><li>Soreness DURING exercise: chemicals build-up as you use up energy (lactic acid) </li></ul><ul><li>Soreness AFTER exercise: tears and damage to muscle fibers </li></ul><ul><li>Healing and replacement of damaged cells = muscle growth </li></ul>
  • 14. Skeletal Muscle Development <ul><li>Skeletal muscles “mature” and strengthen as you grow up </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Increase coordination </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Babies can’t lift head (neck muscles still weak) </li></ul>
  • 15. THE END
