NASA CONNECT Good Stress
In NASA CONNECT, Good Stress: Building Better Muscles and Bones, students will learn about the importance of building and maintaining better muscles and bones. They will learn that all stresses in life are not "bad." In fact, the body needs good stresses, like exercise, to be healthy. Students will see how scientists and researchers collect and analyze physiological data to understand how muscle and bones are constantly changing, especially in a microgravity environment. Grades 6-8.
Weight lifting is beneficial because it builds muscle. Muscles aid in burning fat and calories. Toning your muscles helps you move more efficiently.
Pathophysiology of Systolic Heart Failure
Defines heart failure. Differentiates between systolic and diastolic heart failure, emphasizing systolic heart failure. Defines cardiac output and stroke volume. The module contains the following levels: Defining Heart Failure Systolic versus Diastolic Heart Failure Systolic Heart Failure Preload versus Afterload CHEM7 and CBC Review Cardiac Contractility Compensatory Mechanisms within Heart Failure Compensatory Neurohormones within Heart Failure Precipitating and Aggravating Factors Signs and S
Cardiac - Video for Mobile Devices
Nursing training video for mobile devices: Cardiac exam.
Heart Attack in 3-D
This video shows an animation about how a healthy heart works. Once an artery becomes blocked the muscle can't pump properly. Description of a heart attack showing how a blood clot damages coronary tissue. Color animation with sound. (0:47)
Cat Dissection Shoulder Muscles
Cat dissection of the shoulder muscles. The instructor shows the 3 parts to the trapezius muscle and the levator scapulae.
A breakdancing physicist explains muscle groups. Try to spot the mislabeled muscles and write in to the show to find out if you're right. (1:10)
How the Body Works : Skeletal Muscles
The voluntary or skeletal muscle system consists of more than 650 muscles, which produce body movement and help maintain an upright posture. Voluntary muscles are The voluntary or skeletal muscle system consists of more than 650 muscles, which produce body movement and help maintain an upright posture. built onto the skeletal framework in several layers; the ones shown here are those directly under the skin. Facial muscles are involved in speech, eating, and expression. Muscles across the chest
Muscle Structure and Function
Visit KMSZone.com for more! And here's the last animation done during high school, also the first 'real' one for biology. It explains the details of muscle structure and function.
Explains the importance of muscles in the body. Also, explains how muscle names are given. Good introduction to the muscular system. Every movement you make depends on the movement of your muscles. And the muscular system works with every other system in your body. Color with narration. 1:35 min.
Muscular System Video
This computer animated video gives an overview of the muscular system. It labels and discusses each type of muscle. The physiology of muscles pairs are demonstrated. 3:33 min.
Learn about your skeleton and about the muscles in your body with this short, computer animated video. The video will briefly cover the following concepts: major bones, major muscles, how muscles and bones work together, muscle fibers, muscle types, muscle contractions, and muscle type functions. There is a ten question, fill in the blank quiz at the end of the video.
3-D animation of what happens during one cardiac cycle. Traces blood through both chambers and shows the valves working to regulate the movement of the blood. Grades 5-12. 1:51 min.
This animated short clip shows how the heart works as a pump to deliver blood to all parts of the body. Animation shows the heart muscle and the cycle of blood in various stages.
Animated video about Cardiac Arrhythmia. Short clip shows what happens when the heart beats too fast or too slow. Arrythmia means an irregular heart beat.
This is a brief (02:41) video using computer animation that discusses the cardiac cycle. Good sound quality.
Structure of the Heart
Structure and function of the heart. Explains how cardiac muscle tissue allows the heart to beat. Color animation with narration. 1:48 min.
Heart Anatomy Review
Video shows an actual dissected heart with the parts identified. There's a mistake on the last two structures identified. The Myocardium is in the inside of the heart. The endocardium in the muscle in between the epicardium and the myocardium. Rest of video is a good review of the parts. Grades 9-12. 4:35 min.
Very detailed structure of a muscle, broken down into myofibrils and further to the myosin and actin filaments. 3-D animation shows the arrangement of these structures. Grades 9-12. 1:08 min.
Muscle Structure and Action
Professor George Wolfe discusses muscle structure and action in this video from Thinkwell's online Biology series. This video uses lecture format and a whiteboard to aid in explanation. Run time 11:51.
