The origin of the rectus femoris is the anterior inferior iliac spine
The rectus femoris muscle extends the leg at the knee
A prime mover (agonist) is primarily responsible for a movement
Muscles are named based on all the criteria below except color of muscles
This large, fan-shaped muscle of the upper chest is the prime mover of arm flexion. pectoralis major
Commonly referred to as the ________, this muscle group on the posterior thigh extends the hip. hamstring
This name reveals the number of the muscle's origins. triceps brachii
The names of these muscles tell you their actions. adductor magnus and extensor digitorum
A muscle that is responsible for producing a particular movement is a(n) agonist

When a muscle contracts, the __________ moves toward the __________. insertion; origin
Which of the following is NOT a general action of the muscles of the upper limb? wrist and hand movement forearm movement elbow movement stabilization of the clavicle stabilization of the clavicle

what muscle is located in the superficial lateral abdominal region external oblique
what muscle is located in the thoracic floor diaphragm
The major adductor of the arm is the latissimus dorsi
The prime mover of arm abduction is the deltoid
Which muscle is the prime mover for arm flexion? pectoralis major
triceps brachii is responsible for what function elbow extension
biceps brachii is responsible for what function elbow flexion
flexor carpi radialis is responsible for what function wrist flexion
extensor digitorum is responsible for what function finger extension

tibialis anterior is responsible for what function dorsiflexion
flexor hallucis longus is responsible for what function great toe flexion and foot inversion
extensor digitorum longus is responsible for what function toe extension
tibialis posterior is responsible for what function foot inversion
gluteus maximus is responsible for what function hip extension: stair climbing
rectus femoris is responsible for what function knee extension: thigh flexion
gluteus medius is responsible for what function thigh abduction
biceps femoris is responsible for what function thigh extension
The bundles of muscle fibers within a skeletal muscle are called fascicles
True or False Levers make muscle action more versatile by all changing the location of the muscle’s insertion Fasle
The more movable end of a muscle is the insertion
The muscles of facial expression are innervated by cranial nerve VII
The strongest masticatory muscle is the ___________ muscle. masseter
The muscle that rotates the eye medially is the ___________ muscle medial rectus
Important flexors of the vertebral column that act in opposition to the erector spinae are the ___________ muscles. rectus abdominis
The major extensor of the elbow is the ___________ muscle. triceps brachii
The muscles that rotate the radius without producing either flexion or extension of the elbow are the ___________ muscles. pronator teres and supinator
The powerful flexors of the hip are the ___________ muscles. (a) piriformis, (b) obturator, (c) pe iliopsoas
Knee extensors known as the quadriceps consist of the three vastus muscles and the rectus femoris muscle
List the four fascicle organizations that produce the different patterns of skeletal muscles. parallel, convergent, pennate, and circular
What is an aponeurosis? a collagenous sheet connecting two muscles
What are two examples of an aponeurosis? epicranial aponeurosis and linea alba
Which four muscle groups make up the axial musculature? muscles of the head and neck, muscles of the vertebral column, oblique and rectus muscles, and muscles of the pelvic floor.
What three functions are accomplished by the muscles of the pelvic floor? ) support the organs of the pelvic cavity, (2) flex joints of the sacrum and coccyx, and (3) control movement of materials through the urethra
On which bones do the four rotator cuff muscles originate and insert? The supraspinatus, infraspinatus, and teres minor originate on the posterior body of the scapula, and the subscapularis originates on the anterior body of the scapula. All four muscles insert on the humerus.
