1 Chapter 10 Muscular System

2 Interactions of Muscles
Muscles can be classified into 4 functional groups! Synergist- they help prime movers by adding extra force, reducing unneccessary movements. Fixators- Holds parts of the body in proper position for the action of other muscles, primarily postural muscles.

3 Interactions of Muscles
Muscles can be classified into 4 functional groups! Prime Mover- A muscle that provides the major force for producing a specific movement. Antagonists- muscles that oppose, or reverse, a particular movement.

4 Muscles Work!! Muscles never push they just pull!!
Muscles are usually in pairs because whatever one muscles or muscle group can do, there is another muscle or group of muscles that “undoes” the action.

5 Naming of the Skeletal Muscles!
Skeletal muscles are named according to a number of criteria, each of which describes the muscle in some way. Paying attention to these cues can simplify the task of learning muscle names and actions.

6 Naming of the Skeletal Muscles!
1. Location of the Muscle (temporalis) 2. Shape of the Muscle (Deltoid) 3. Relative size of the Muscle (Maximus, minimus) 4. Direction of the Muscle Fibers (rectus –straight: oblique, transverse mean to run at right angles.)

7 Naming of the Skeletal Muscles!
5. Number of Origins (triceps and biceps) 6. Location of the attachments (Sternocleidomastoid) 7. Action (adductor longus)

8 Muscles of Facial Expression

9 Orbicularis Oculi The WINKER
A ringlike band of muscle, called a sphincter muscle, that surrounds the eye. It lies in the subcutaneous tissue of the eyelid Closes eye in blinking It also aids in the compressing the tear glands

10 Orbicularis Oris The “Pucker Up” Muscle
Sphincter muscle that surrounds the lips. Closes and puckers the lips. Often called the “kissing muscle”

11 Zygomaticus Extends from the zygomatic arch downward to the corner of the mouth Raises corner of mouth when smiling and laughing

12 Platysma The Frowner Thin sheet like superficial neck muscle.
Plays a role in facial expression. Tenses skin of neck. (e.g. during shaving)

13 Epicranius The epicranius covers the upper part of the cranium and consists of two muscular parts. Frontalis and Occipitalis

14 Frontalis Lies over the frontal bone Wrinkles forehead

15 Occipitalis Moves scalp

16 Sternocleidomastoid Praying Muscle
Long muscle in the side of the neck that extends upward from the thorax to the base of the skull behind the ear Pulls head to one side

17 Masseter “The Chewer” A thick flattened muscle that can be felt just in front of the ear when the teeth are clenched Elevates mandible Closes mouth

18 Buccinator Blower or Whistler!! Thin, horizontal cheek muscles;
Draws corner of mouth laterally, compresses cheek , well developed in nursing infants.

19 Muscles that Move the Pectoral Girdle

20 Trapezius A large triangular muscle in the upper back that extends horizontally from the base of the skull and the cervical thoracic vertebrae to the shoulder Rotates scapula.

21 Rhomboideus The Rhomboids are very thin muscles which have tremendous responsibility. Connects the upper thoracic vertebrae to the scapula. Raises the scapula and adducts.

22 Serratus Anterior A broad curved muscle located on the side of the chest Arises from narrow strips on the upper ribs and extends along the medial wall of the axilla to the ventral surface of the scapula Pulls scapula anteriorly and downward Used to thrust the shoulder forward when pushing something.

23 Muscles that move the Arm

24 Pectoralis Major A thick fan shaped muscle located in the upper chest.
Extends from the center of the thorax through the armpit to the humerus Adducts and medially rotates humerus; draws scapula anteriorly and inferiorly. Pulls the arm forward and across the chest.

25 Pectoralis Minor A thin, flat muscle that lies beneath the larger pectoralis major Stabilizes scapula by drawing it inferiorly and anteriorly against thoracic wall                                                                  

26 Teres Major Medially rotates and adducts arm.
Stabilizes shoulder joint Connects the scapula to the humerus

27 Teres Minor Small muscle connecting the scapula to the humerus.
Rotates arm laterally

28 Infraspinatus Occupies the depression below the spine of the scapula on its posterior surface. Attach the scapula to the humerus; helps to hold humeral head in glenoid cavity of scapula. Laterally rotate arm

29 Latissimus Dorsi It is a wide, triangular muscle that curves upward from the lower back, around the sides, and to the armpit. Extends, adducts, and rotates arm, pulls shoulder down or back

30 Deltoid Muscle Abducts, extends, and flexes the arm
It is a thick, triangular muscle that covers the shoulder joint.                                 

31 Muscles that Move the Forearm

32 Biceps Brachii It is a fleshy muscle that forms a long, rounded mass on the anterior side of the arm Connects the scapula to the radius and ulna Flexes forearm at elbow Rotates hand laterally

33 Brachialis A large muscle beneath the biceps brachii
                                 A large muscle beneath the biceps brachii Connects the shaft of the humerus to the ulna Flexes forearm at elbow

34 Brachioradialis Connects the humerus to the radius.
                                                     Connects the humerus to the radius. Flexes forearm at elbow

35 Triceps Brachii                                  Has three heads and is the only muscle on the back of the arm Connects the humerus and scapula to the ulna It is the primary extensor of the elbow. Flexes forearm at elbow

36 Extensor Digitorum Runs medially along the back of the forearm.
Connects the humerus to the posterior surface of the phalanges and then extends the fingers. Extends hand at wrist joint

37 Muscles of the Abdominal Wall

38 External Oblique A broad, thin sheet of muscle whose fibers slant downward from the lower ribs to the pelvic girdle. Tenses abdominal wall Compresses contents

39 Internal Oblique A broad, thin sheet of muscle located beneath the external oblique Runs up and forward from the pelvic girdle to the lower ribs. Tenses abdominal wall Compresses contents

40 Rectus Abdominis Long, straplike muscle that connects the pubic bones to the ribs and sternum. Tenses abdominal wall Compresses contents Flexes vertebral column

41 Muscles that make up the Leg

42 Biceps femoris Has 2 heads, one attaches to the ischium and the other attached to the femur. Passes along the back of the thigh on the lateral side and connects to the proximal ends of the fiubla and tibia. Flexes and rotates leg laterally and extends thigh. 1 of the hamstring muscles

51 Gluteus Maximus The largest muscle in the body and covers a large part of each buttock Connects the ilium, sacrum, and coccyx to the femur by fascia of the thigh and extends the thigh. Extends thigh at hip, helps to straighten the lower limb, also used to raise the body from a sitting position

52 Gluteus Medius Partly covered by the gluteus maxium.
Its fibers extend from the ilium to the femur Abducts and rotates thigh medially                      

53 Adductor Longus A long triangular muscle that runs from the pubic bone to the femur Adducts, flexes, and rotates thigh laterally

54 Adductor Magnus The largest adductor of the thigh.
A triangular muscle that connects the ischium to the femur. Adducts, extends, and rotates thigh laterally.
