Functions of muscles
movement of body parts and organ contents
maintain posture and prevent movement
communication-speech, expression and writing
control of openings and passageways
heat production
larger blood vessels and nerves, stretch receptors
surrounds bundle of cells called a fasicle
inner most; allows room for capillaries and nerve fibers
direct muscle attachments
epimysium (muscle) is continuous with periosteum (bone)
indirect muscle attachments
epimysium continues as tendon or aponeurosis (broad sheet) that merges into periosteum as perforating fibers
muscle attachment to dermis
allows you to smile
muscles involved in laughing
levator labii superioris
zygomaticus minor
zygomaticus major
muscle affected by whiplash
intrinsic muscle
entirely contained within a particular region; both origin and insertion
extrinsic muscle
acts upon a designated region but has its origin elsewhere
intrinsic tongue muscles
vertical, transverse and longitudinal fasicles
extrinsic tongue muscles
connect to the tongue behind hyoid, styloid process, palate and inside of chin
Biting and Chewing (mastication)
Temporalis and Masseter elevate the mandible
Medial and Lateral Pterygoids help elevate, but produce lateral swinging of jaw
muscle used to yawn
muscles used in breathing
diaphragm and external intercostal muscles
Which requires more muscular effort-inhaling or exhaling?
