Section 1

Question Answer
muscular systemconsists of skeletal smooth and cardiac muscles
works with the skeletal systemto permit movement of the body
maintains posture ANDcirculates blood throughout the body
muscular system in vertebrates is controlled throughnervous system, although some muscles (such as cardiac muscle) can be completely involuntary. FOR EXAMPLE, CARDIAC MUSCLE, SKELETAL MUSCLE And SMOOTH MUSCLE CELL
movement?works with nervous system to create movement
skeletal musclereceives signal from nervous to contract while OPPOSING muscle will recieve signal to RELAX
skeletal muscles always workin opposing pairs

Section 2

Question Answer
skeletal system consists of both FUSED and INDIVIDUAL BONES supported and supplemented by LIGAMENTS TENDONS MUSCLES AND CARTILAGE
serves as scafoldwhich SUPPORTS ORGANS ANCHORS MUSCLES And PROTECTS ORGANS SUCH AS THE BRAIN LUNGS AND HEART AND ALLOWS MOVEMENT
cartilagecomposed of cells that form COLLAGEN FIBRES. acts as a CUSHION BETWEEN BONES TO PREVENT DAMAGE TO END OF THE BONES
ligaments and tendonsconnective tissue which hold bones together at joint. tendons are connective tissues which connect muscles to bone
nervous systemincludes sense, regulating body structures and HOMEOSTASIS
sense and response to continous change within the body and external enviroment
regulates body structures and processes to maintain hemostatis
nervous system can regulate tens of thousands of activities simultaneously
homeostasisbalance where you want to be internally up to nervous system to make sure everything is in good condition
parts (two major divisions)brain and spinal cord. IN CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM
peripheral nervous system (PNS)networks of nerves that carry information to CNS and send information from CNS to muscle, everything steming from the central nervous system
neuronnerve tissue and their structure allows them to transmit impulses from one area of the body to another
nervesallow for two way flow of information even though each neuron transmits information in one direction
