  1. The Muscular System

  2. or “Everything you ever wanted to know about Muscles, but were afraid to ask” !!!

  3. Did you know that ? • more than 50% of body weight is muscle ! • And muscle is made up of proteins and water

  4. The Muscular System • Muscles are responsible for all movement of the body • There are three basic types of muscle • Skeletal • Cardiac • Smooth

  5. Info About Muscles • Only body tissue able to contract • create movement by flexingand extendingjoints • Body energyconverters (many muscle cells contain many mitochondria)

  6. 3 Types of Muscles

  7. Skeletal Cardiac Smooth Three types of muscle

  8. Classification of Muscle

  9. Characteristics of Muscle • Skeletal and smooth muscle are elongated • Muscle cell = muscle fiber • Contraction of a muscle is due to movement of microfilaments (protein fibers) • All muscles share some terminology • Prefixes myo and mys refer to muscle • Prefix sarco refers to flesh

  10. Shapes of Muscles • Triangular- shoulder, neck • Spindle- arms, legs • Flat- diaphragm, forehead • Circular- mouth, anus

  11. Skeletal Muscle • Most are attached by tendons to bones • Cells have more than one nucleus (multinucleated) • Striated- have stripes, banding • Voluntary- subject to conscious control • Tendons are mostly made of collagen fibers • Found in the limbs • Produce movement, maintain posture, generate heat, stabilize joints

  12. Structure of skeletal muscle • Each cell (fibre) is long and cylindrical • Muscle fibres are multi-nucleated • Typically 50-60mm in diameter, and up to 10cm long • The contractile elements ofskeletal muscle cells aremyofibrils

  13. Skeletal muscle - Summary • Voluntary movement of skeletal parts • Spans joints and attached to skeleton • Multi-nucleated, striated, cylindrical fibres

  14. Smooth Muscle • No striations • Spindle shaped • Single nucleus • Involuntary- no conscious control • Found mainly in the walls of hollow organs

  15. Smooth muscle • Lines walls of viscera • Found in longitudinal or circular arrangement • Alternate contraction of circular & longitudinal muscle in the intestine leads to peristalsis

  16. Structure of smooth muscle • Spindle shaped uni-nucleated cells • Striations not observed • Actin and myosin filaments are present( protein fibers)

  17. Smooth muscle - Summary • Found in walls of hollow internal organs • Involuntary movement of internal organs • Elongated, spindle shaped fibre with single nucleus

  18. Cardiac Muscle • Striations • Branching cells • Involuntary • Found only in the heart • Usually has a single nucleus, but can have more than one

  19. Cardiac muscle • Main muscle of heart • Pumping mass of heart • Critical in humans • Heart muscle cells behave as one unit • Heart always contracts to it’s full extent

  20. Structure of cardiac muscle • Cardiac muscle cells (fibres) are short, branched and interconnected • Cells are striated & usually have 1 nucleus • Adjacent cardiac cells are joined via electrical synapses (gap junctions) • These gap junctions appear as dark lines and are called intercalated discs

  21. Cardiac muscle - Summary • Found in the heart • Involuntary rhythmic contraction • Branched, striated fibre with single nucleus and intercalated discs

  22. Type of muscle Nervouscontrol Type of control Example Controlled by CNS Voluntary Lifting a glass Regulated by ANS Involuntary Heart beating Controlled by ANS Involuntary Peristalsis Muscle Control Skeletal Skeletal Cardiac Smooth

  23. Types of Responses • Twitch- • A single brief contraction • Not a normal muscle function • Tetanus • One contraction immediately followed by another • Muscle never completely returns to a relaxed state • Effects are compounded

  24. Where Does the Energy Come From? • Energy is stored in the muscles in the form of ATP • ATP comes from the breakdown of glucose during Cellular Respiration • This all happens in the Mitochondria of the cell • When a muscle is fatigued (tired) it is unable to contract because of lack of Oxygen

  25. Exercise and Muscles • Isotonic- muscles shorten and movement occurs ( most normal exercise) • Isometric- tension in muscles increases, no movement occurs (pushing one hand against the other)

  26. How are Muscles Attached to Bone? • Origin-attachment to a movable bone • Insertion- attachment to an immovable bone • Muscles are always attached to at least 2 points • Movement is attained due to a muscle moving an attached bone

  27. Insertion Origin Muscle Attachments

  28. Types of Musculo-Skeletal Movement Flexion

  29. Extension

  30. Hyperextension

  31. Abduction, Adduction & Circumduction

  32. Rotation

  33. More Types of Movement…… • Inversion- turn sole of foot medially • Eversion- turn sole of foot laterally • Pronation- palm facing down • Supination- palm facing up • Opposition- thumb touches tips of fingers on the same hand

  34. The Skeletal MusclesThere are about 650 muscles in the human body. They enable us to move, maintain posture and generate heat. In this section we will only study a sample of the major muscles.

  35. Sternocleidomastoideus Flexes and Rotates Head

  36. Masseter Elevate Mandible

  37. Temporalis Elevate & Retract Mandible

  38. Trapezius Extend Head, Adduct, Elevate or Depress Scapula

  39. Latissimus Dorsi Extend, Adduct & Rotate Arm Medially

  40. Deltoid Abduct, Flex & Extend Arm

  41. Pectoralis Major Flexes, adducts & rotates arm medially

  42. Biceps Brachii Flexes Elbow Joint

  43. Triceps Brachii Extend Elbow Joint

  44. Rectus Abdominus Flexes Abdomen

  45. External Oblique Compress Abdomen

  46. External Intercostals Elevate ribs

  47. Internal Intercostals Depress ribs

  48. Diaphragm Inspiration

  49. Forearm Muscles • Flexor carpi—Flexes wrist • Extensor carpi—Extends wrist • Flexor digitorum—Flexes fingers • Extensor digitorum—Extends fingers • Pronator—Pronates • Supinator—Supinates
