Unformatted text preview: (Turley, 2003, p. 530). Summary Muscular Movement occurs as a result of muscle contraction. Muscular movement is also responsible for one’s posture, and heart production. “Bones grow in length at the epiphyseal plate by a process that is similar to endochondral ossification. This process continues throughout childhood and the adolescent years until the cartilage growth slows and finally stops” (Bone development and growth, 2000). Summary Neurotransmitters are released by neurons and send impulses from one cell to the entire nervous system. Reference Page Turley, S. (2007). Medical language. Pearson Education.
