Introduction to Anatomy & Physiology: The Musculoskeletal by Dr. Tommy Mitchell

By Dr. Tommy Mitchell

Only a grasp clothier, the writer God of the universe, might be answerable for such complexity within the human body!

  • An exploration of the awe-inspiring production that's the human body
  • God created our bodies which are either gentle and robust, in addition to highly complex
  • Explore the constitution, functionality, and law of the physique in detail.

This junior excessive anatomy and body structure curriculum opens with the construction blocks of the human physique - the cells. Even the bones and muscle tissues that supply us energy and velocity depend upon many sorts of cells. during the publication you are going to study activities to maintain your physique fit, although in a fallen, cursed international issues are certain to get it wrong, corresponding to ailment and accidents. As our trip during the human physique progresses, it will likely be glaring that this exceptional constitution didn't come up accidentally. you'll comprehend why God encouraged the Psalm author to claim that the human physique is “fearfully and fantastically made”!

Sample text

Neurons are able to receive signals from other cells, generate a signal, or nerve impulse, and transmit a signal to other nerve cells or organs. Axon Unipolar neuron (touch and pain sensory neuron) Dendrites Nervous tissue is the primary component of the nervous system. The nervous system regulates and controls bodily functions. Axon Anaxonic neuron (Amacrine cell) Axon Dendrites Nervous tissue is found in the central nervous system and the peripheral nervous system. The central nervous system has only two parts: the brain and the spinal cord.

The periosteum contains special nerve endings that sense pain, which is no surprise at all to anyone who has had a broken bone! Man, does THAT hurt! The periosteum also has blood vessels that help provide nutrients to the bone. Now let’s look at the inner structure of a long bone. That seems quite a lot for a little membrane, but there’s more. There are special cells in the The innermost part of the bone is not as dense. It is almost like a sponge or a honeycomb in its If a bone is cut in cross section (see below), you can see that beneath the periosteum is a dense, thick layer that is called compact bone.

Some can live a few months. When they die, they need to be replaced. If we could not constantly make new blood cells, we could not survive. So you can see our bones do more than just hold us up. They do much more! TAKING A CLOSER LOOK Blood Cell Production Hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs) Red bone marrow Red blood cells White blood cells Platelets 2 BONES If you have ever spent time looking at a skeleton, you will see that bones come in many shapes and sizes. Anatomists have sorted bones into certain classes based on their shape.
