It also illustrates the right half of the diaphragm, the muscles of the posterior abdominal wall, the muscles of the right hand (palmar view) and the muscles of the left foot (plantar view).
Through engaging text and full-color photos, readers learn that there are 600 muscles in the human body and that there are three different types of muscles, cardiac, smooth, and skeletal. Other topics discussed include tendons, cardiac muscle, and smooth muscles, which make up the walls of blood vessels, the stomach, and intestines and are found in the body's hollow organs. The book explains that cardiac and smooth muscle are involuntary muscles, while skeletal muscles are voluntary. Readers discover that every muscle has its own name, including flexors, extensors, abductors, and adductors. Readers also learn that the trapezius and gluteus maximus muscles are examples of muscles that are named for their size, shape, or location. Muscular diseases and the ways to keep muscles healthy, including exercise and a healthy diet are also highlighted. Detailed diagrams, medical models, phonetics, glossary, and index enhance the text.
Did you know that there are more than 600 named muscles in the human body? About 40 percent of a person's body weight is muscle. Discover more fascinating facts in Muscular System, a title in the Body Systems series. Each title in Body Systems guides readers through the fascinating inner workings of the human body. The human body contains several complex systems that work closely together to support fife and allow the body to function properly. Each book explores the characteristics and interactions of these systems, their makeup, and their importance. This is an AV2 media enhanced book. A unique book code printed on page 2 unlocks multimedia content that brings the book to life. This book comes alive with audio, video, weblinks, slideshows, activities, quizzes, and much more.

Joe Muscolino’s The Muscular System Manual: The Skeletal Muscles of the Human Body, 4th Edition is an atlas of the muscles of the human body. This approachable, yet detailed, musculoskeletal anatomy manual provides both beginner and advanced students with a thorough understanding of skeletal muscles in a compartmentalized, customizable layout. Each muscle spread shows the individual muscle drawn over a photo of the human body, with an arrow to indicate the line of pull of the muscle, and explains: the muscle name, the origin of that name, Greek and Latin derivations, pronunciation, attachments, actions, eccentric contraction function, isometric contraction function, innervation to two levels of detail with predominant levels in bold, and arterial supply to two levels of detail. This new edition also features robust Evolve resources, an updated art program, and new chapter review and critical thinking questions that encourage you to apply what you have learned to prepare for practice. UNIQUE! Overlay art, consisting of over 380 full-color anatomical illustrations of muscles, bones, and ligaments drawn over photographs, helps identify the positions of muscles and bones in the human body. UNIQUE! Electronic Muscle and Bone Review Program features a base photograph with a skeleton drawn in and a list of every muscle for each major region of the body so students can choose any combination of muscles and place them onto the illustration — allowing them to see not only the muscle attachments, but also the relationship among the muscles of the region. Complete muscle coverage in an easy-to-understand layout makes this text appropriate for novices to anatomy, as well as intermediate and advanced students. Content organized by body region and includes information on how muscles in that region function together and large drawings of the muscles of that region so you can go directly to the topic you are studying. Covers the methodology for each muscle with information for learning muscle actions to explain the reasoning behind each action — and encourage you to learn and not just memorize. A four-color, student-friendly design with sections clearly boxed throughout and checkboxes that help you keep track of what you need to learn and what you have mastered. Customizable format, with checkboxes and numbered lists in each muscle layout, presents basic muscle information for the beginning student in bold type and more advanced information in regular type. Palpation boxes include bulleted steps instructing how to palpate each muscle so you can apply this assessment skill in practice. Evolve website for instructors includes TEACH Resources, a Test Bank, and an image collection so instructors can easily access all of the materials they need to teach their course in one place — and track through the course management system provided via Evolve. Evolve website for students includes access to audio of the author reading aloud muscle names, attachments, and actions for the muscles covered in the book, labeling exercises, and more to enrich your learning experience.
Based on Bodynamic Analysis, a body-oriented psychology developed in Denmark by the authors and their colleagues, Body Encyclopedia describes the developmental sequence in which psychological and emotional elements are linked to specific muscles. The book shows how certain responses to events in our lives end up bound and connected with our movement patterns. Through extensive research, Marcher, Fich, and several others have mapped out the psychological functions of 154 muscles and related tissues. Featuring more than 200 detailed illustrations, Body Encyclopedia opens with an introduction to the history and development of Bodynamic Analysis. The core of the book presents a description of each muscle, including movement positions, age level when the muscle is activated, and a summary of the psychological themes associated with each muscle. Basic instructions are provided for bodymapping, a hands-on procedure that involves palpating and registering muscle response. Vivid case studies demonstrate how to apply the information in real-life situations. Using the book as a guide, readers can accurately identify and investigate the underlying psychological issues associated with muscle pain, discomfort, or weakness in specific areas of the body.
The muscular system gives humans their shape and helps them move their body. This inside guide to our muscles uses relatable examples, discussion questions, sidebars, and fact boxes to dive in to what makes the muscular system work. Age-appropriate language is used in conjunction with detailed photographs and diagrams to explain key concepts such as main muscles in the body, and ways muscles can be strengthened or weakened. Your readers will gain a deeper understanding of the primary functions of the muscular system, including maintaining posture, strength, and movement.
Colorful graphics, engaging text, and fun, close-up photographs invite young readers to become familiar with their muscular system. In this book, readers will learn about the three types of muscle _ skeletal muscle, smooth muscle, and cardiac muscle _ and how they work to support and move their body. Simple diagrams highlight major parts of the muscular system. Also described are the structure of muscles and how they work with other systems, such as the nervous and skeletal systems, to move the body. In addition, readers will learn about nutrition, exercise, and safety to keep their muscular system healthy. Features include a table of contents, fun facts, diagrams, health tips, a glossary with phonetics, and an index. Buddy Books is an imprint of ABDO Publishing Group.
**This is the chapter slice "The Muscular System - Movement" from the full lesson plan "Cells, Skeletal & Muscular Systems"** What do cells, bones and muscles have in common? They are all part of the human body, of course! Our resource takes you through a fascinating study of the human body with current information written for remedial students in grades 5 to 8. We warm up with a look at the structures and functions of cells, including specialized cells. Next, we examine how cells make up tissues, organs and organ systems. Then the eight major systems of the body are introduced, including the circulatory, respiratory, nervous, digestive, excretory and reproductive systems. Then on to an in-depth study of both the muscular and skeletal systems. Reading passages, activities for before and after reading, hands-on activities, test prep, and color mini posters are all included. All of our content is aligned to your State Standards and are written to Bloom's Taxonomy and STEM initiatives.
