2 The skeleton provides an anchor for the muscles that move the body. There are 206 bones in a human adult as a newborn infant we start out with about 300.
3 Axial skeleton supports the central axis of the body; skull, vertebral column, and rib cage Appendicular skeleton bones of arms and legs
4 What do you think is a better model of a bone, a stick of chalk or a sponge? The chalk may look more like a bone but the sponge shows what the structure actually looks like inside
5 What passes through the tubes and spaces inside bone? Blood vessels and nervesPERIOSTEUM-Bone is surrounded by a tough layer of connective tissueHaversian canals-Network of tubes that contain blood vessels and nerves.
6 Bone marrow Cavities that contain a soft tissue There are two types of bone marrow:yellow and redYellow marrow is made up primarily of fat cells.Red marrow produces red blood cells, some kinds of white blood cells, and cell fragments called platelets.
7 Cartilage -Cells are scattered in a network of protein fibers—tough collagen and flexible elastin. Cartilage does not contain blood vessels.Cartilage cells must rely on nutrients from the tiny blood vessels in surrounding tissues.Cartilage is dense and fibrous, it can support weight, despite its extreme flexibility
8 Fracture - Breaking a bone Ossification -Cartilage is replaced by bone during the process of bone formationOsteoblasts create bone.Osteocytes maintain the cellular activities of bone.Osteoclasts break down bone Force must be placed on bone for ossification to occur, because it is force that stimulates the osteoblasts to secrete the minerals that replace cartilage
9 What effect do you think an exercise such as walking would have on the bones of the legs? It would stimulate ossification, so the bones would contain more minerals and be stronger.What do you think might happen to the bones that are not exposed to force, such as the bones of astronauts in zero gravity?The bones would lose minerals because of lack of force exerted on them, so they become weaker
10 Bone formation occurs in babies and children Seven months before birth cartilage is gradually replaced by boneWhen a person grows, the growth plates are lengthening in the long bonesWhen you stop growing, those growth plates are then filled in with boneAdults do retain some cartilageTip of nose, ears, where ribs attach to the sternum
11 Bone formation also occurs when a bone is broken Osteoclasts remove damaged bone tissueOsteoblasts produce new bone tissueThe repair of a broken bone can take months because the process is slow and gradual
12 Depending on its type of movement, a joint is classified as immovable, slightly movable, or freely movableImmovable JointsWhere the bones in the skull meetSlightly Movable JointsThe joints between the two bones of the lower leg and the joints between adjacent vertebrae are examples of slightly movable joints.Freely Movable JointsBall-and-socket joints permit circular movement—the widest range of movementHinge joints permit back-and-forth motion, like the opening and closing of a doorPivot joints allow one bone to rotate around anotherSaddle joints permit one bone to slide in two directions
13 Structure of jointsEnds of bones are covered with a smooth layer of cartilageJoints are surrounded by a fibrous joint capsule that helps hold bones together
14 Tendons attach muscles to bones. When muscles contract, tendons pull on bones to cause movement.LIGAMENTS – strip of tough connective tissue that hold bones togetherSynovial fluid – lubricates the ends so bones can slide past each other smoothly
16 Skeletal and Muscular Systems What are the three types of muscle?
17 Skeletal Muscle Skeletal muscles are usually attached to bones Skeletal muscles are responsible for such voluntary movements as typing on a computer keyboard, dancing, or winking an eyeWhen viewed under a microscope at high magnification, skeletal muscle appears to have alternating light and dark bands or stripes called striations. For this reason, skeletal muscle is sometimes called striated muscleMost skeletal muscles are controlled by the central nervous system.
18 Smooth Muscles Smooth muscles are usually not under voluntary control A smooth muscle cell is spindle-shaped, has one nucleus, and is not striatedSmooth muscles are found in hollow structures such as the stomach, blood vessels, and the small and large intestinesSmooth muscles move food through your digestive tract, control the way blood flows through your circulatory system, and decrease the size of the pupils of your eyes in bright light.
19 Cardiac Muscle Cardiac muscle is found in just one place in the body—the heartThe prefix cardio- comes from a Greek word meaning “heart.”Cardiac muscle is striated like skeletal muscle, although its cells are smaller.Cardiac muscle cells usually have one nucleus, but they may have two.Cardiac muscle is similar to smooth muscle because it is usually not under the direct control of the central nervous system
20 Muscle ContractionA muscle contracts when the thin filaments in the muscle fiber slide over the thick filamentsThe energy for muscle contraction is supplied by ATPNeuromuscular junctionThe point of contact between a motor neuron and a skeletal muscle cell
21 How do body builders get muscles that increase in size? Muscles that are exercised regularly stay firm and increase in size by adding more material to the inside of the muscle cells
22 Integumentary System Skin is the largest organ of the human body. Skin makes up about 7% of your total body weight.The skin, hair, and nails form the integumentary system.
23 Integumentary System The integumentary system does the following: protects the body from injury and UV radiationdefends against diseasehelps regulate body temperatureprevents the body from drying out
24 Integumentary System Waterproofing The epidermis is the outermost layer of skin.It is made of flattened, dead cells composed of a protein called keratin.Keratin is also found in nails and hair.Keratin makes the skin tough and waterproof.Without the protection of keratin and oil, our bodies would lose water through evaporation or absorb water from the environment.
25 Integumentary System Disease Prevention The epidermis forms a tight barrier that keeps bacteria out and protects the body from disease.Damage to large areas of skin allows bacteria to enter the body freely.This lack of protection is one reason why severe burns are so dangerous.
26 Integumentary System UV Prevention The lower layers of the epidermis contain cells that make melanin, a pigment that absorbs UV light.This absorption prevents DNA damage, which can cause skin cancer.
27 HOMEOSTASIS Integumentary System Temperature Regulation A network of blood vessels and nerves in the dermis help regulate body temperatures.Sweat glands also help remove excess body heat through the evaporation of sweat.HOMEOSTASIS
