Muscular System: The muscular system includes the structures, or muscles, made of specialized cells called muscle fibers. Muscle fibers have the ability to shorten and contract and can be under voluntary or autonomic control. Over 600 muscles in the body are responsible for a large variety of functions, including the movement of the body, facial movements, and are vital to such processes as respiration and heartbeat. There are three types of muscle: smooth muscle, skeletal muscle, and cardiac muscle.
The muscular system works together with and interacts directly or indirectly with every other system in the body, including the skeletal system, nervous system, genitourinary system, circulatory system, immune system, respiratory system, digestive system and endocrine system.
