Nervous and Muscular Systems
By: David Tucker


You walk and see a water spill at the bottom of a stairway in the Subway Station                                                                  {Neurons detect a Stimulus}

Your leg muscles avoid the potential incident by walking away in another route to where I was intending to be.                                                                                                                                                                                      {Muscles move as a Response}

Now you may be asking how can my body process all of these response and first hand interactions, that protect myself from future situations/circumstances. We'll there are 2 systems called the Nervous and Muscular systems that make this happen directly.

Nervous System

Your Nervous System is very sequential to how you do ordinary interactions/tasks in everyday life.

It's main function is to make sure that your body's activities coordinates with the sensing of your stimuli, in which directs your body's response/movement. {Muscular Movement}

~Stimuli: It's information about an environmental change

Muscular System

You muscular system is what allows your everyday tasks and interactions with muscular movements, so you're able to complete those tasks in ordinary life.

It's main function is to allow the body to basically move.

Structures: Obviously the muscles {Over 600 muscles in the Human Body}

Controlled by: The Nervous System

Q: How do muscles move?

A: They move by the pulling on a attached bone

How do BOTH of These Systems Work Together?

There's 3 Steps

1. Neurons detect a stimulus

2. The Brain interprets the info and sends instructions for a response

3. The muscles move as a response
