muscles of the superficial compartment of the posterior compartment of leg
Gastrocnemius-muscle(calf)-has a medial and lateral head that arise from the distal femur and cross the knee joint (can flex the knee joint) then they come down and form the Calcaneal (achilles) tendon that crosses the ankle joint and then connects to the calcaneus (plantar flexion)
Plantaris-deep to Gastroc, crosses the knee (thin looks like a nerve)and the tendonblends in with the calcaneal or achilles tendon.
Soleus-bilateral, arise from tibia and fibula acts on ankle only-plantor flexion, its tendon  joins the achilles also crosses the ankle joint and then connects to the calcaneus
bone growth (length)
Grows in 4 zones (resting, proliferation, hypertrophic, and calcified). Diaphysis is indreased in length due to activity of the epiphyseal plate.

The oviduct is the most common site for what?
bone scan
tracer bond to phosphorous labels its uptake in bones
what creates larger generator/receptor potential?
-more frequent AP

study of the general form and superficial anatomical markings
Appendicular portion of body:
B) includes arms and legs

Efferent Divison
division of the PNS that carries motor commands to muscles and glands.
gray matter
nerve tissue of the brain and spinal cord that contains fibers and nerve cell bodies and is a dark reddish-gray color
Rhomboid major - origin, insertion, action, innervation
origin: spinous processes of T2-T5
Insertion: medial border of scapula from spine to inferior angle
INnervation: dorsal scapular nerve
Action: retract scapula and rotate to depress glenoid cavity, fix scapula to thoracic wall.
What does the coronoid process of the mandible attch to?
Muscles of mastication/chewing
Attachments, innervation, and actions of the Satorius muscle
Proximally attached to ASIS, distally attached to the medial aspect of the tibia
Innervated by the femoral nerve
Flexes, abducts, and laterally rotates the thigh; flexes the leg at the knee

Compact (Cortical or Lamellar) Bone:
Solid structure associated with the shaft or the ends.Typically remodeled with Haversian systems.
the inner of the two bones of the leg, that extend from the knee to the ankle and articulate with the femur and the talus; shinbone.
what are the two layers of endometrium?
stratum functionalis- shed in periodstratum basalis- deep, regenerates new layer
What are skeletal muscles and what functions do they perform? (Ch. 9 pg. 238)
Skeletal muscles are contractile organs directly or indirectly attached to bones of the skeleton.
Produce skeletal movement
Maintain posture & body position
Support soft tissues (ab wall & pelvic cavity support visceral organs)
Regulate  entering and exiting of material (muscle at orifices)
Maintain body temp (muscle use releases heat - shivering)
What is the nervous system?(2)

What is on the posterior of the sacrum?
the median and lateral sacral crests (which are a fusion of the S1-S5 spinous processes)
1. right lung shape
2. left lung shape
1. short and wide, due to the r. diaphramatic dome extending higher
2. long and skinny (attenuated) due to the heart imposing medially
