    • circular: sphincter like, as seen in mouth
    • convergent: origin is wider than point of insertion, max force production
    • parallel: long muscles causing large movements, not very strong but good endurance
    • unipennate: fibres arranged to insert in a diagonal direction onto the tendon, which allows great strength
    • bipennate: two rows of muscle fibres in opposite diagonal directions with a central tendon (feather), greater power but less motion
    • multipennate: multiple rows of diagonal fibres, w/a central tendon that branches into 2+ tendons
    • fusiform: muscles are more spindle shaped, with the muscle belly being wider than the origin and insertion.
  1. tendon, origin, insertion
    • Tendon: tough band of fibrous connective tissue that connects muscle to bone
    • Origin: the point at which muscle attaches to a bone. The structure that it is attached to is not moved by contraction
    • Insertion: the point at which a muscle attaches to the skin, a bone, or another muscle. The structure its attached to is moved by muscle contraction.
  2. syngergist vs antagonist
    • Antagonist: a muscle that acts in opposition to the specific movement generated by the agonist, is responsible for returning limb initial position.
    • Synergists: are muscles that act on movable joints
    • Synergists and antagonistic muscle groups are formed during early development, prior to individual muscles
    • Muscle tissue is derived from mesoderm
  3. Movement of Upper Extremity:
    • Flex –extend
    • Abduct– adduct
    • Rotate
    • Pronate – supinate
    • Circumduct
  4. Radial Nerve
    Radial: supplies the upper limb, originates from the posterior cord of the brachial plexus with roots from C5, C6, C7, C8 & T1

    Posterior interosseuos: nerve in the forearm. It is the continuation of the deep branch of the radial nerve, after this has crossed the supinator muscle.
  5. ulnar nerve
    runs near the ulna bone, the largest unprotected nerve in the human, directly connected to the little finger, and the adjacent half of the ring finger
  6. median nerve
    It is in the upper limb, enter the forearm with the brachial artery, originates from the brachial plexus with roots from C5, C6, C7, C8, & T1, the only nerve that passes through the carpal tunnel, where it may be compressed to cause carpal tunnel syndrome.
  7. Musculocutaneous nerve
    arises from the lateral cord of the brachial plexus, opposite the lower border of the Pectoralis minor, its fibers being derived from C5, C6 and C7.
  8. Axillary nerve
    comes off the of the brachial plexus at the level of the axilla (armpit) and carries nerve fibers from C5 and C6

    (also called circumflex nerve)
