About Simulation

  • In this biology experiment, you will learn about the structure and functions of the muscles.
  • You will explore various disorders of the muscular system.
  • Through the example of a hypnic jerk, you will learn about the muscles, their working and the coordination of movements by the Muscular System.
  • This interaction creates a very realistic environment and gives you a real-life experience.
  • Every step of this biology practical, including setting up the experimental setup, dissecting the specimen, demonstrating the models, making permanent slides, and many more, is very interactive and has been simulated in a way that is very similar to what you would do in a real lab.

All living things must move in order to survive. Animals display a variety of behaviours, including protoplasmic streaming, ciliary motions, movements of the fins, limbs, wings, etc. The muscular system allows body movements, supports posture, and moves blood throughout the body. The muscular system comprises skeletal, smooth, and cardiac muscles.

Although some muscles, like the heart muscle, i.e. the cardiac muscles, are capable of complete autonomy, the neurological system controls the muscular systems in vertebrates. Locomotion is a voluntary movement that assists animals to move from one location to another.

The human body has more than 650 muscles. Each muscle, which is made up of thousands or tens of thousands of tiny muscular fibres, is a type of elastic tissue. The contraction of each muscle fibre is controlled by impulses from nerve cells. Each fibre is made up of numerous small strands called fibrils.

Generally speaking, animals move in order to find food, shelter, a mate, a breeding place, a better climate, or to protect themselves. You will learn about the muscles system, the working of muscles and the disorders of the muscular system.
