  • Essay On Myasthenia Gravis

    cause difficultly chewing, swallowing, and speaking. In worse conditions, the muscles used for breathing and neck and limb movements experience weakness (NINDS Myasthenia Gravis Information Page, 2015). Although Myasthenia Gravis can cause numerous muscular problems there is also lots of research being done on possible treatments. Myasthenia Gravis, a chronic autoimmune disease, occurs due to a defect in the neuromuscular junction at the synapse between the motor neuron and a skeletal muscle…

  • Synovial Joint Case Studies

    Synovial joint consists of a joint capsule, a joint cavity and a layer of cartilage over the ends of two joining bones. These joints are lined with synovial fluid. The articular cartilage over the joint ends absorbs jolts as it acts like elastic and it also provides a smooth surface for the joints to move frictionlessly. This fluid also helps in lubricating and protecting the bones. Cartilage is softer and much more flexible than a bone. The major role of cartilage is to form a model for later…

  • Essay On Muscle Contraction

    “A muscle is a tissue composed of cells or fibres, the contraction of which produces movement in the body.” (Dictionary) There are three different types of muscle; voluntary skeletal muscle, involuntary smooth muscle and cardiac muscle. Muscles have many different functions within the body. One function of muscle is movement. It is the only tissue in the body which is able to contract and therefore can move more than other body parts. Another function is the maintenance of posture. The muscles…

  • Muscle: Location, Action, Shape, And Function

    Evaluate how the name of a muscle can distinguish its location, action, shape, and function. Select five different muscles to make this distinction. Depending on the anatomical position of the body part, certain prefixes, and suffixes are utilized in order to find its location verbally. These prefixes and suffixes can be described by the: size of the muscle, location of the muscles, direction of the muscle fibers, amount of origins, shape of a muscle, and location of a muscle origin/insertion.…

  • Wrist Joint Case Study

    The wrist or carpus is a highly mobile structure composed of many small bones and joints. In the anatomy of the human hand, a total of 13 bones form part of the wrist- eight carpal bones- scaphoid, lunate, triquetral, pisiform, trapezium, trapezoid, capitate and hamate; and five metacarpal bones which are joined along with two long bones of the forearm- the radius and the ulna (Platzer 2004). This complex system of articulations works in unison to provide a global range of motion for the wrist…

  • Muscle Contraction Research Paper

    Skeletal muscles are made of three different muscle fiber types. All muscle fibers are having varying amounts of mitochondria in them. Mitochondria helps the muscle be able to manufacture ATP for contraction. To differentiate between the three muscles is based on their make up. Slow oxidative (SO) or type one muscle fibers are composed with the most mitochondria to help them be fatigue resistant. SO muscle fibers stain the darkest because the enzyme targeted by the stain is most abundant in this…

  • Skeletal Muscle Training

    being done, the skeletal muscle will adapt differently to each type. The two most basic types of exercise are endurance and resistance training (Knuiman, 2015). The goal of endurance training is to improve aerobic power by conducting submaximal muscular contractions. Adversely, resistance training involves approximately maximal contractions occurring in short bouts. It also focuses on muscle hypertrophy, or the enlargement of muscle fibers (Knuiman, 2015). Due to this fact, skeletal muscle…

  • Cell Differentiation In The Human Body

    M2: Cell differentiation is the process in which a generic embryonic cell develops into a specialized cell to do a particular job or function which has been triggered by the body or the actual cell itself by signals. The signals are sent to the cell receptor, which interprets the message through a signal transduction pathway. This pathway converts the message into something that the cell is able to recognize and understand. This is how a cell learns its functions and purpose. Cell…

  • Research Paper On Vascular Anomalies

    Vascular anomalies are a serious medical condition that affect blood vessel formation in as many as 1 in 10 people (Richter and Suen 2015). Vascular anomalies can be divided into two broad categories: vascular tumors and vascular malformations (Richter and Suen 2015). Vascular tumors, also known as hemangiomas, are characterized by rapid growth with most undergoing involution once the patient has reached a certain age (Richter and Suen 2015). On the other hand, vascular malformations are…
