In this program, the diverse nature of muscle tissue is examined, from its gross structure to its detailed microstructure, where chemical energy is harnessed to produce movement. As muscle forms the basis for much of a person's body shape, we explore the ways in which this shape can be changed by the activities we perform. The program provides a complete introduction to the following topics: Location and uses of smooth, skeletal, and cardiac muscles Muscle structure and function Aerobic and anaerobic respiration Relationship between muscle mass and body shape Neuromuscular disease Physical fitness
