Analyze the major functions of the articular and nervous system.

The articular is the connection between two bones. There are many functions the joints have but one of the main functions would be movement. The joints also help bear our body’s weight as well as give us stability. The joints contain synovial fluid, which lubricates the joint and nourishes the cartilage (Lippert, 2011).

The nervous system is a complex mechanism which gives the body control, stimulates, and coordinates all of the other body systems. The function of the nervous system is to send neurons which are specialized cells that sends signals between different parts of the body (Zimmermann, 2016).

Assess how the four systems (skeletal, muscular, articular, and nervous) work together to create movement.

The four systems work together when we are doing different activities one activity is jumping jacks. When we are doing jumping jacks the skeletal system is being used because it provides the stability during movement. The muscular system is being used because the muscles are attached to the bones that are being used which provides the movement for the activity. The articular system is being used because the joints are being lubricated so that movement can occur. The nervous system comes into play because it controls, coordinates, and stimulates the other systems. So during the activity the nervous system sends signals to the other systems that the body is doing an activity that requires the body to move a certain way.
