Afferent
structures moving towards an organ or central nervous system
Efferent
structures moving away from organ or CNS
Superficial vs. Deep
Towards the surface of the body vs. further from surface of body
most superficial organ of the human body is
skin (integumentary system).
Just deep to the skin is...and what is it composed of
superficial (subcutaneous or hypodermis) fascia. The superficial fascia is composed of loose connective tissue and fat.
Deep to the superficial fascia is...and what is it composed of and what does it envelope
deep fascia. a dense irregular connective tissue layer. Deep fascia invests or envelopes deep structures in the body such as organs, muscles and nerves.
Afferent
structures moving towards an organ or central nervous system
Efferent
structures moving away from organ or CNS
what is subserous fascia
A specific type of deep fascia, the organs and vessels of the abdominal cavity are found in this subserous fascia.
Superficial vs. Deep
Towards the surface of the body vs. further from surface of body
what is the skeletal system comprised of
skeletal system is comprised of bones, cartilages, ligaments and joints
most superficial organ of the human body is
skin (integumentary system).
what are the three types of muscle in the body and what does each form
1.Smooth muscle – forms part of the walls of most vessels and hollow organs (e.g., intestines) – under involuntary control.

2.Cardiac uscle – forms the walls of the heart – under involuntary control.

3.Skeletal muscle – moves bones and other structures such as the eyes - under voluntary control
Just deep to the skin is...and what is it composed of
superficial (subcutaneous or hypodermis) fascia. The superficial fascia is composed of loose connective tissue and fat.
What are the muscle layers? and their order?
basic structural unit of a muscle is the muscle fiber (muscle cell), covered by endomysium, covered by perimysium, covered by epimysium
Deep to the superficial fascia is...and what is it composed of and what does it envelope
deep fascia. a dense irregular connective tissue layer. Deep fascia invests or envelopes deep structures in the body such as organs, muscles and nerves.
What is epimysium and what is its composition?
epimysium is the deep fascia encasing a muscle. Many muscle fascicles are further bundled together and covered by an even denser connective tissue called the epimysium
Describe endomysium
Each individual muscle fiber is covered by a thin layer of loose connective tissue called the endomysium.
what is subserous fascia
A specific type of deep fascia, the organs and vessels of the abdominal cavity are found in this subserous fascia.
Describe perimysium
Many parallel muscle fibers are bundled together and covered by a denser connective tissue covering called the perimysium
what is the skeletal system comprised of
skeletal system is comprised of bones, cartilages, ligaments and joints
What is a muscle fascicle
Each muscle bundle enveloped by perimysium is known as a muscle fascicle
what are the three types of muscle in the body and what does each form
1.Smooth muscle – forms part of the walls of most vessels and hollow organs (e.g., intestines) – under involuntary control.

2.Cardiac uscle – forms the walls of the heart – under involuntary control.

3.Skeletal muscle – moves bones and other structures such as the eyes - under voluntary control
What constitutes a single muscle?
muscle fascicles and their corresponding epimysium
What are the muscle layers? and their order?
