Muscular System

In our body we have a system called the Muscular System which controls our movement. Without our muscles we would be like a statue. In our muscular system there are 3 main types of muscle tissue: Skeletal, Smooth and Cardiac muscles. The Cardiac muscle is only found in the heart. The Cardiac muscle is a Involuntary Muscle and it pushes cells through the chambers in the heart. The skeletal muscles are muscles attached to bones and which are commonly found in the legs and arms. A tendon is the muscle that hold the Skeletal muscles together. The skeletal muscles are also called Striated muscles. Skeletal muscles work in pairs. WHen one contracts the other relaxes when the other one contracts the other one relaxes Smooth muscles are also called involuntary muscles.

Nervous System
In our body there is a system that controls the 5 senses Sight, Listening, Smell, taste and touch, and that is the Nervous System. The Nervous System has Stimulus, Neurons, Sensory Neurons, Figure 5 and more, but we will only be talking about those that I listed so lets journey through the Nervous System. The Stimulus is an organism that you react to such as swatting a fly. Neurons are the cells that carry information . The neuron has a huge body in which contains nucleus thread like extensions which are named dendrites and an axon. Neurons carries information known as a nerve impulse. Usually Dendrites and Axons are called what there named, but sometimes they are called nerve fibers. A pack of nerve Fibers are also known as a nerve. A sensory neuron converts stimulus to a nerve impulse. Interneurons are neurons which carry nerve impulse to a not neuron. Motor neurons are messengers who move at the speed of light. The Cerebrum intercepts in put on all senses , Movement and others.

Circulatory System
Through Out all the system there is one system that keeps us alive and that is the Circulatory system. The Circulatory System is made up of blood vessels heat and all that disgusting blood. The heart has four chambers: The right Ventricle, The Right Atrium, Left Atrium and the left Ventricle. Blood vessels are tunnels that go to the heart and away from the heart. The right side of the heart is completely separated by the left side in which the tissue that is the wall is called septum. Arteries are usually really thick like 3 layers of tissue. After blood traveled through the capillaries it enters a larger blood vessel called veins, which takes blood to the heart. the arteries and veins are as thick as each other, but veins in the middle have a muscle layer. Blood us made up of four parts. Red blood cells, white blood cells, Plasma and platelets. Plasma is 75% liquid.

Digestive System
There is only one system that controls digestion and that system is called the Digestive System. Foods will help provide materials for growing and repairing. Carbohydrates help provide the raw materials to make cell parts. Fats can help form parts of the cell Membrane the structure forms a boundary for the cell. Proteins are also needed for repairing and growth, While Minerals and Vitamins are used by our bodies to carry small amounts of chemical purposes. The most important nutrients are from water

which provides nutrient break downs. The small intestines chemical digestion and abortion of nutrients takes place in the small intestine. In the pancreas produces a enzymes that goes into the small intestine to breakdown starches, proteins, and fats. The large intestine takes the water to eliminate remaining material.

Respiratory System
Breathing and Breathing, there is only one system that controls that and that is the Respiratory System. The respiratory system is the system that pulls oxygen from the outside environment in to our body which needs air. In the process in the lungs it removes carbon dioxide and water out of our body, while air travels from the outside wilderness to the lung it passes through many structures such as the nose, Pharynx, trachea, and Bronchi. After all that air has entered a alveolus, oxygen will pass through a wall of alveolus, after it will pass through a capillary wall into the red blood cells. Carbon and water then pass from the blood in to the alveoli. This whole process is known as the Gas Exchange. When we are breathing our rib muscles and diaphragm will expand or contrast.

Skeletal System
There is the only one that keeps us in shape and that is the Skeletal System. Our skeleton has 5 main functions which provides shape and Support and enables you to move. It protects organs, produces blood cells and also stores minerals and other materials until your body needs them again. The vertebrae is made up of 26 small bone.s. All the bones in the skull are made up of immoveable Joints. All the movable joints are held together by ligaments, The second type is called Cartilage.

Bones are structures that lives and is really complex. Spongy bones are light, but can be really strong. A marrow is a soft connective tissue. Human Biology and Health By Elizabeth Coolidge- Stolz http://wiki.answers.com/Q/What_is_a_skeletal_system

Integumentary System
What System is skin nails and hair part of? Well this is all part of the Integumentary system. Did you know skin is the largest organ in the body? Yeah it is. Skin is continuously distinct from mucous and membrane which are in the Mouth, anus, urethra, and Vagina. Skin has to distinctive layers called dermis and epidermis. Eccrine glads and Aprocrine glands are part of the sweat gland. Hair roots are roots that extend to the base or also known as the Hair Bulb. Skin can also help maintain skin temperature with the sweat glands. Nails also have nerves and also nails can help pick up things.
