Physiology Presentation

The process of muscular movement, bone growth, and nerve transmission. By: Laura Davis Axia College 11/29/2009

Muscular Movement
Smooth muscle  Cardiac muscle  Skeletal muscle  Functions of the skeletal muscle include:

The process of muscular movement
 muscular

system

Bone Growth

Bone Growth

Stress fracture Open fracture Complete fracture Single fracture Comminuted fracture Greenstick fracture






Bone Growth
 Displaced   Simple   Oblique   Spiral   Pathologic 

fractures

transverse fracture

fracture fractures

The four steps of Synaptic Transmission
 Synthesis   Neurotransmitter   Neurotransmitter

and Storage of Neurotransmitters Release Postsynaptic

Receptors
  Inactivation

of Neurotransmitters

Nerve Transmission
 synthesized   efficiently   selective

and stored

released from the terminal

receptors on the postsynaptic

cell
  Inactivation

of the neurotransmitter

Here are a few of the more common break locations:

Colles' fracture

 

Hip fractures.

Compression fractures.


How are the interrelated?
