IN THIS EXPERIMENT YOU WILL…

Look at a typical “elbow joint” as well as the motion around the joint will in order to observe the importance of ligamentsA ligament is the fibrous connective tissue that connects bones to other bones. It is also known as articular ligament, articular larua, fibrous ligament, or true ligament on jointsJoints are the areas where two or more bones meet. . The “elbow joint” is known as a complex hinge joint, because it allows for flexionnoun: flexion; plural noun: flexions; noun: flection; plural noun: flections the action of bending or the condition of being bent, especially the bending of a limb or joint and extensionExtension is the opposite of flexion, describing a straightening movement that increases the angle between body parts of the distal end of the limban arm or leg of a person or four-legged animal, or a bird's wing . In this experiment it allows for the spreading out of the chicken’s wings, which makes it a prime example of a locomotive jointAiding in locomotion or movement. This means that a lot of movement is experienced around the joint on a daily bases. It is similar to the elbow joint in humans and other MammaliaVertebrate animals constituting the class Mammalia.

 

The skeletal systemBody system composed of bones, cartilages, ligaments and other tissues that perform essential functions for the human body is important for the foundation of any body as it gives structure and stability to the body. MusclesMuscles function to produce force and motion attach to skeletal system in order to allow the body to move in a uniform and controlled manner. Joints between bones are structured in specialized ways to compensate for the motion that occurs between them.
