transmit nerve impulses from brain/spinal cord to effector sites
brain and spinal cord
cranial and spinal nerves that spread throughout the body
sensory receptors responsible for sensing distortion in body tissues
muscle spindle
receptors sensitive to change in length of the muscle and the rate of that change. stretch reflex/contract. prevent over-stretching.
golgi tendon
sensitive to change in tension of the muscle and the rate of change. cause muscle to relax

sesamoid - patella
layers of muscle
endomysium, perimysium, epimysium
Neural activation
the contraction of a muscle generated by neural stimulation
Motor unit
A motor neuron and all the muscle fibers it innervates
Chemical messengers that cross the neuromuscular junction to transmit electrical impulses from the nerve to the muscle
Cardiorespiratory system
composed of the cardiovascular and respiratory systems
Cardiovascular system
heart, blood, and blood vessels
space in the chest between the lungs that contains all the internal organs of the chest except the lungs
Sinoatrial (SA) node
located in right atrium of the heart, initiates electrical impulses that determine heart rate, pacemaker
AV node
receives heartbeat impulses from SA node and directs them to walls of ventricles
superior chamber of heart that receives blood from veins and forces it into ventricles
inferior chamber of heart that receives blood from atrium and forces blood into arteries
Cardiac output
volume of blood pumped by heart per minute. HR x SV, overall performance of heart
Blood transportation:
-transports O2 and nutrients to tissues
-transports waste products from tissues
-transports hormones to organs and tissues
-carries heat throughout body
Blood regulation:
regulates body temp and acid balance in body
Blood protection:
-protects from excessive bleeding by clotting
-contains immune cells to help fight disease/sickness
transport blood away from the heart
site of exchange of water and chemicals btwn blood and tissues
