  • Building Smooth Muscles

    you’re reading this journal, chances are you already have a decent understanding of the far-reaching importance of building strength muscle to promote long term health and increased functionality of the human body. Having muscle development (and training for it in the gym) goes beyond the aesthetic appeal. For health-conscious individuals, it’s an important part of being able to do what you want to do for the long haul, and even has by-products like improved efficiency of fat burning. With all of this said, it’s worth mentioning that we belong to an industry that’s full of blanket cues. Cues that can keep the complete layperson safe and promote a good overall structure, but cues that can actually do more harm than good for a lifter who’s…

  • Similarities And Differences Between Skeletal, Cardiac, And Smooth Muscle.

    similarities and differences between skeletal, cardiac, and smooth muscle. Skeletal Muscles are attached to bones. Their functions include: produce skeletal movement, maintain posture and body position, support soft tissues, guard body entrances and exits, maintain body temperature, and store nutrients. They are striated muscles because of their appearances of having bands of actin and myosin that form the sarcomere which is located in the myofibrils. The skeletal muscle consists of it being…

  • Vascular Smooth Muscle Cells Case Study

    Vascular smooth muscle cells (VSMC) and extracellular matrix (ECM): Blood vessels, include arteries that transport blood from the heart to the systemic circulation, and veins that transport blood back again into the heart. A remarkable change in blood vessel structure and function happened, with the emergence of a high-pressure, pulsatile circulatory system in vertebrates. Blood vessels then evolved from simple tubes for channeling blood or other body fluids from a low-pressure heart. According…

  • Cell Differentiation In The Human Body

    Muscle tissues are different from connective tissues as they’re specialised to be able to contract. They are stretched out and are often known as ‘muscle fibres’. Muscle tissues contain mitochondria which produce ATP. This helps the muscles to contract, so this is why muscle tissue contains more of this than the connective tissue as some of their functions are different from each other. There are three types of muscle cells; skeletal, cardiac and smooth muscle tissue. The skeletal muscles are…

  • Regressive Defense

    statements, and diversification. Nonverbal defenses include avoidance of eye contact, smiling and giggling, weepiness, or body posture. To effectively intervene, the therapist must proceed from the outside in, and should begin with tactical defenses that prevent emotional closeness before proceeding to work on formal defenses. Anxiety Defenses are employed in an effort to reduce the anxiety that accompanies hidden thoughts and feelings. Davanloo has classified anxiety into three primary…

  • 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…

  • The Muscular System

    and other things, muscles also control facial expressions, movements and respiration. There are three types of muscles, skeletal smooth and cardiac, skeletal muscles are the only voluntary muscle tissues in the human body. The smooth muscles are found inside organs such as the stomach and the intestines, and in blood vessels. It is called a smooth muscle because…

  • Muscular System Research Paper

    system is attached to the bones of the skeletal system which help you move around and maintain balance. 3. There are 3 different types of muscle: Visceral, Cardiac and Skeletal Muscle. • Visceral Muscle: Visceral muscles are found in the stomach, intestines and blood vessels. Visceral muscles make your organs contract and move substances through the organ. Visceral muscles are an involuntary muscle. It is also known as “smooth muscle” because of its appearance when it is viewed under a…

  • Skeletal Muscle Research Paper

    Of the three types of muscle cells, skeletal muscle cells are the most recognizable as muscles because skeletal muscles are the type used in voluntary movement. Skeletal muscles cells are some of the most distinct differentiated cells in the human body, this distinction is likely because of the clear and specific purpose in the body of being the source of contractions that allow voluntary movement. I chose skeletal muscle cells because it’s fascinating to me how movement of the body is such a…
