Although it may look like an ECG is recording heartbeats, it's not. In fact, it records the electrical activity (the electrical triggers, if you will) that presage the actual heartbeat. The mechanical beats follow the electrical triggers by about a tenth of a second -- unless, of course, there's a problem. Or to state it in…

    Introduction Some of the most important organs in the human body are muscles. Muscles usually make up 30-50% of the body and are responsible for producing skeletal movement, maintaining body position, and regulating body temperature. In a lab, the process of muscle contraction was investigated by exploring the sliding filament theory. An experiment was conducted to determine whether muscle length played a role in the amount of force a muscle produces. In order to fully understand how a muscle…

    Muscles (Grip strength) In this week’s lab, we was doing an experiment on forearm, and its muscle fiber with nerves. The forearm is a part that between the primates’ elbow and wrist. Forearms contain connective tissue, nerve tissue and muscle tissue. In which, connective tissue is just radius and ulnar bones. However, there are a great deal of muscles and nerves in the forearm. When a nerve impulse transmission to synaptosomes induced depolarization, allows calcium ions to enter the cell…

    In a skeletal system joints, ligaments, and tendons all go hand in hand. A joint is defined by two or more bones that meet. However, with the use of fibrous connective tissue, ligaments allow the joints to be held together. Ligaments are what prevent us from moving in an undesirable plane, another purpose they serve is that they limit the range or extent of normal movement (Wallace 2013). Unlike ligaments where the bone might be attached to another, tendons are fibrous tissue connecting the…
