Skeletal Muscle Organization: Connective Tissue and Layers

1. Skeletal Muscle Organization: Connective Tissue and Layers

Did you know that skeletal muscles are organized into tightly packed groups? This lesson identifies the connective tissue layers that organize skeletal muscle into fascicles, muscle fibers and myofibrils. Additionally, the microscopic structure of the sarcomere is described.

The Skeletal System: Function and Terms

2. 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.

Common Disorders of the Skeletal System

3. Common Disorders of the Skeletal System

The skeletal system is a very important body system, and there are some common disorders that specifically affect it. Continue reading to learn about them, including their symptoms and treatment.

The Human Nervous System: Parts & Functions

4. The Human Nervous System: Parts & Functions

Your nervous system allows you to experience the world around you and react to it. It's a complex system that's split into two main parts, the central nervous system and the peripheral nervous system. Read on to learn the parts and functions of the system.

Sensory Organs: Functions & Explanation
