Actions of Skeletal Muscles – Origin, Insertion and Muscle Interactions

By | July 22nd, 2017|Anatomy, Physiology|0 Comments

The arrangement of the Skeletal muscles is such that the muscle ends are attached to bones on each side of a joint therefore, generally the muscle covers the joint. The muscle movement rely on the place of the muscle attachments [...]

Passive Transport – Simple and Facilitated Diffusion and Osmosis

By | July 22nd, 2017|Physiology|0 Comments

Passive transport describes the mechanism of transport of substances along the gradient without expense of any energy It relies on the physical aspects like concentration gradient, electrical gradient and pressure gradient. Given that the transport of substances takes place along [...]

Thermoregulation -Temperature Regulation In Skin – Hypothermia And Hyperthermia

By | July 22nd, 2017|Physiology|0 Comments

Body temperature is maintained at 37°C as a result of balance between heat generation and heat loss processes. This balance involves autonomic nervous system, metabolism, and behavioral responses. According to a 1992 study published in the Journal of the American [...]

Active Transport – Primary and Secondary Processes

By | July 22nd, 2017|Physiology|0 Comments

Active transport describes the mechanism of transport of substances versus the chemical and/or electrical gradient. Active transport includes expense of energy which is freed by breakdown of high energy substances like adenosine triphosphate (ATP). Considering that the transport of substances [...]
