Muscular System Function covers, shapes, and supports the skeleton tissue and contracts and moves various parts of the body
Muscular System over 640 mms make up about 40 percent of the body's weight
Muscles fibrous tissues that can stretch and contract to meet the demands of the body's movements
Striated Mms skeletal or voluntary mms attached to bones
Nonstriated Mms involuntary, visceral, or smooth mms found in internal organs
Cardiac Mms involuntary mm makes up the heart (and nothing else)
Origin (of a mm) part of mm that doesn't move (attached to skeleton)
Insertion (of a mm) part of mm at more movable skeleton attachment
Belly (of a mm) middle part of mm
Pressure in Massage usually directed insertion to origin
Massage hand or electric vibrator stimulates muscle tissue
Electrical Current high frequency or faradic current stimulates muscle tissue
Light Rays infrared rays or UV rays stimulate muscle tissue
Heat Rays heating lamps or heating caps stimulate muscle tissue
Moist Heat steamers or moderately warm steam towels stimulates muscle tissue
Nerve Impulses through the nervous system stimulate muscle tissue
Chemicals certain acids and salts stimulate muscle tissue

Nervous System Function coordinates activities performed inside and outside body
Principal Components of Nervous System brain, spinal cord, and nerves
Main Subdivisions of Nervous System central (cerebrospinal), peripheral, and autonomic
CNS or Cerebrospinal consists of brain, spinal cord, spinal nerves, and cranial nerves + controls voluntary functions
PNS carries impulses to and from CNS
ANS controls involuntary actions of smooth mms, glands, blood vessels, and heart
Brain largest and most complex nerve tissue in body
Number of Cranial Nerves 12 pairs
Spinal Cord from brain to lower extremity of trunk, protected by spinal column
Number of Spinal Nerves 31 pairs distributed to mms and skin of trunk and limbs
Nervous System Composition fine fibers called nerves and nerve cells called neurons
Afferent nerves carry messages from sense organs to brain + also called sensory
Sensory nerves carry messages from sense organs to brain + also called afferent
Efferent nerves carry messages from brain to mms + also called motor
Motor nerves carry messages from brain to mms + also called efferent
5th cranial nerve largest cranial nerve
