Simplify your studying process by watching the video lessons and reading the text transcripts that are found in this chapter when it is convenient for you. If you are ever stuck on any lesson or concept within a lesson, you can reach out to our knowledgeable instructors. They are here to help you and answer any questions about the chapter's material.
1. What Is the Muscular System? - Function & How Muscles Work in Groups
Ever feel overwhelmed when you look at all those muscles in your textbooks? Well, if you do, then maybe learning a little about their anatomy and organization and how they work together will help you sort through it all. In this lesson, learn about the muscle itself and how it works with others to help the muscular system function.
2. Major Muscle Groups of the Human Body
This lesson introduces the major skeletal muscle groups of the human body. It includes illustrations, examples, and descriptions for each major group. A brief quiz and summation of key points are also included.
3. What is the Cardiovascular System? - Function & Organs
Your cardiovascular system never stops! Your heart beats many times each minute to circulate blood throughout your body. In this lesson, learn about your heart and the rest of your cardiovascular system.
4. Nervous System Overview: Central & Peripheral
What happens in your nervous system when you react to stimuli? Did you know that the brain is sometimes uninvolved with reflexes? Find out the answer to these questions, and more, in this lesson on the human nervous system.
5. The Skeletal System: Function and Terms
You'll learn about the two major divisions of our skeleton, the axial and appendicular skeleton, in this video lesson. In addition, you will find out how bone is formed, thanks to tiny little cells called osteoblasts and osteoclasts, and what the major parts of a long bone are.
6. Types of Joint Movement & Tissue Structure and Function
Find out how your joints are categorized. You'll learn about the synovial, cartilaginous, and fibrous joints as well as diarthrosis, synarthrosis, and amphiarthrosis.
7. Interaction Among Body Systems & Movement
In this lesson we discuss how body systems interact to create movement. We explain how the eleven body systems are indeed interdependent and interconnected and how they actually work together in unison.
8. Exercise Physiology: Definition & Goals
In this lesson, you will learn about exercise physiology and the role it plays in fitness. You'll also learn about the areas of specialization and goals of exercise physiology.
9. Using Energy Systems for Physical Activity
We all need energy to go about our daily lives and accomplish the goals that we set each day. However, many of us do not know how our body energy systems work. In this lesson we review ways energy systems are used for physical activity.
10. Physiological Effects of Physical Activity
Frequent challenging physical activity does a body good. This lesson will discuss the ways that the body adapts to physical activity and the physiological changes that come from it. We will end with a brief quiz to see what you have learned.
