The muscular system is the most intriguing of the body's structures. It is the system we have the most control over. Using a simple principle of physics, the lever principle, our muscles are able to move our skeleton around, allowing us to perform simple tasks of facial communication, refined finger movements and the graceful actions of the elite athlete. Also, understand the unique characteristics of the body's most important muscle - the heart. Join renowned surgeon Dr. Mark Reisman as he guides you through the anatomy and physiology of the human body's many muscles, tendons and ligaments.
Shot in HD, using the latest in 3-D graphics, medical imaging and cadaver specimens, see the human body's muscular system revealed in ways never seen before.

"classes studying human anatomy will find this series useful in providing information about basic anatomy, physiology, chemistry, and mechanics of the various body systems. Heart surgeon Dr. Mark Reisman describes the anatomy and function of each body system through live-action video, photos, medical imaging, and realistic 3-D animation. The evolutionary development of each body system is also discussed. Cadaver dissections are used to point out structures and organs associated with each system..The educator's guide contains an extensive vocabulary list and a transcript of the program. Closed captioning and Spanish subtitles are optional."- School Library Journal
