The Muscular System Study Brief is intended as a quick condensed reference for anatomy, medical, and physical therapy students as well as individuals interested in advanced science. It presents a short history on the study of the human muscular system. An overview of major muscle types, explaining their basic functions and movements, offers some initial orientation to the topic. An introduction to the anatomy of a muscle fiber is provided, along with a detailed illustration of its components. Multiple types of muscle contractions are outlined, followed by a step-by step description of a skeletal muscle contraction. Detailed sections identify discrete parts of the muscular system, including muscles of the skeleton, facial expression and mastication. Muscles of the neck, trunk/abdominal wall and vertebral column are illustrated. Individual sections provide a detailed breakdown of the muscles responsible for the movement of the shoulder, arm, forearm, wrist, hand, thumb and fingers and the movement of the thigh, leg, ankle, foot and toes. Anatomical illustrations with key terms labeled are plentiful.
