Soma
...  of sitting idly in front of computers, or by attending to all the commands of the employer. Soma is actually a brand name for the drug Carisoprodol. Carisoprodol works in a way that it becomes a Skeletal muscle relaxant to soothe the muscle pains of every person. It is usually found in a colourless crystalline powder with a characteristic odour that adds to the already bitter taste of the  ...

Baclofen
...  A derivative of the neurotransmitter gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA), baclofen is an agonist that binds to the GABA receptors and inhibits activity in the specific brain area that facilitates Skeletal muscles and their functions. It acts as a muscle relaxant that relaxes the Skeletal muscles. It functions as an anti-spastic agent, too, which means that convulsive and spastic tendencies  ...

Abiplatin
...  numbness in their hands and feet, as well as a loss of motor function. This side effect usually disappears a few months after the conclusion of the treatment. Muscle cramps, described as involuntary Skeletal muscle contraction, have also been stated to occur, as well as loss of hearing and taste. In cases after greater dosage and more prolonged therapy, damage affecting the kidney and other  ...

Nerves
...  system has two parts: The Somatic Nervous System, which contains nerves that are connected to the brain and spinal cord through muscles that you control consciously, these are called voluntary or Skeletal muscles. It also has receptors in the skin that detect information inside and around the body. The Autonomic Nervous System is the one responsible for connecting the brain stem and spinal  ...

Skeletal Muscles
...  human body consists of three types of muscle tissues: the smooth, the cardiac and the Skeletal muscles. The smooth muscles make up the muscle tissues in hollow organs in the body, such as the stomach, gastro-intestinal tract and uterus; The cardiac muscle is located in the heart; and lastly, the Skeletal muscles are found attached to bones. To understand the Skeletal muscles, here is a  ...

Cardiac Muscle
...  muscles are part of the three types of muscles in the body. The other two are the smooth and the Skeletal muscles. It makes up the muscular layer of the heart. Each time the heart contracts, the individual muscle cells shorten and thus, cause the continuous beating. In order to understand the functions better, take a look at it under the microscope. Histology The individual cardiac  ...

Smooth Muscle
...  blood vessels would burst during increased pressure because it could not expand its lumen to accommodate the increased input. These are some of the many functions of smooth muscles. Difference from Skeletal muscles While Skeletal muscles are predominant, the smooth muscles are found in certain areas of the body. They are slower to react to stimuli than the Skeletal muscles. The smooth muscles  ...

Conduction System of the Heart
...  This impulse spreads through the atria, which causes the walls to contract. The neurons that supply the nerves to the cardiac muscle hold several similarities to the neurons that innervate the Skeletal muscle. These neurons can be greatly influenced by the sympathetic part of the autonomic nervous system. The components of the conduction system of the heart include: The Sinoatrial Node.  ...

Lymph Fluid
...  our veins. They are designed very similarly except for the valves which are there to prevent back flow; they also have the same three layers which the walls of the veins are composed of. It is the Skeletal muscles and their tendency to contract which results in a massaging motion which generates the friction necessary for the lymph fluid to be able to flow about continuously throughout the  ...

Scrotum
...  scrotum. It is through a layer of smooth muscle tissue known as dartos which is positioned underneath the scrotum’s skin. The spermatic cord creates the base for a small amount of the bands of Skeletal muscle found within the scrotum. This helps to create the spermatic cord, a fascia tube which encompasses the testicular nerves, vessels and ductus deferens. Different temperatures may  ...
