Beginning with an exploration of the anatomy and physiology of muscles, this volume of the Encyclopedia of the Human Body discusses the parts of the muscular system and how they work together to help us move from place to place and to maintain many internal processes, such as a heart beat. Muscle contraction, development, and response during exercise are covered. The history of research on muscular anatomy is presented and the future of research in this field is considered. Current controversies and dilemmas of scientists performing this research are explored. Muscular system diseases and disorders, symptoms and treatments are explored, including muscular dystrophy and hypertrophy. This reference concludes with information about maintaining a healthy muscular system, a comprehensive glossary, and resources for further information including web sites and contact information for organizations and national health institutions.
The set provides a complete, comprehensive reference source for students interested in the human body. Each book in this ten-volume set introduces and describes a specific body system, including the parts and function of each system, the history of discovery, related diseases and treatments, as well as future advances in research. Detailed illustrations and diagrams, including an eight-page color insert, provide a visual reference for written material.
