Скажите, в каком значении употребляется слово «counter» в тексте.


XI .Read the text:



There are three types of muscles: skeletal, smooth, and cardiac (heart). Two of these kinds -skeletal and smooth - are part of the musculoskeletal system.


Skeletal muscle is what most people think of as muscle, the type that can be contracted to move the various parts of the body. Skeletal muscles are bundles of contractile fibers that are organized in a regular pattern, so that under a microscope they appear as stripes (hence, they are also called striped or striated muscles). Skeletal muscles vary in their speeds of contraction. Skeletal muscles, which are responsible for posture and movement, are attached to bones and arranged in opposing groups around joints. For example, muscles that bend the elbow (biceps) are countered by muscles that straighten it (triceps). These countering movements are balanced. The balance makes movements smooth, which helps prevent damage to the musculoskeletal system. Skeletal muscles are controlled by the brain and are considered voluntary muscles because they operate with a person's awareness. The size and strength of skeletal muscles are maintained or increased by regular exercise. In addition, growth hormone and testosterone help muscles grow in childhood and maintain their size in adulthood.

Smooth muscle is an involuntary non-striated muscle. It is divided into sub-groups: the single-unit and multiunit muscle. Within single-unit (smooth) muscle tissues, the autonomic nervous system innervates a single cell within a bundle. Multiunit smooth muscle tissues innervate individual cell; as such, they allow for fine control and gradual responses, much like motor unit recruitment in skeletal muscle.

Smooth muscle is found within the walls of blood vessels such as in the layer of large (aorta) and small arteries, arterioles and veins. Smooth muscle is also found in lymphatic vessels, the urinary bladder, uterus, male and female reproductive tracts, gastrointestinal tract, etc. The structure and the function is basically the same in smooth muscle cells in different organs.


XII. Make the sentences complete:


1. Smooth muscles are sometimes called …. muscles.

2. This type of muscles can not be … .

3. Smooth muscles are found in the … system allowing …. to make its journey through the body.

4. Skeletal muscles are sometimes called … muscles because the light and … parts of the muscle fibers make them look striped.

5. Skeletal muscles are …. muscles, which means that a man can … what they do.

6. Skeletal muscles help to make up the …. system.

7. In most cases, a skeletal muscle is …. to one end of a bone.

8. It stretches all the way across a …. and then attaches again to another bone.

9. The skeletal muscles work together with the bones to give the body power and …. .


striated; digestive; attached; joint; involuntary; musculoskeletal; controlled; strength; voluntary; food; control; dark;

XIII. Substitute English words for the Russian ones:


Мышца is a сократительная ткань of animals and is derived from mesodermal слой of embryonic germ клеток. Muscle cells содержат contractile filaments that двигаются past each other and изменяют the size of the cell. They are classified as скелетные, cardiac, or гладкие muscles. Their функция is to produce силу and cause motion. Muscles can cause передвижение either of the organism itself or движение of internal organs. Cardiac and smooth muscle contraction происходит without person`s осознания and is necessary for survival. Examples are cокращение the of the heart and peristalsis which pushes food через the digestive system. Voluntary contraction of the skeletal muscles используется to move the body and can be finely controlled. Examples are movements of the eye or of the бедро. There are two основных types of voluntary muscle : slow twitch and fast twitch.


XIV. Listen to the text “Smooth muscle” and retell it in Russian. Before listening, look through the list of words:




1.fusiform [`fju:zifom ] – веретенообразный

syn. spindle-shaped [spindl ]

2.single-unit = multiunit

3. to tense = to relax


XV. Render from Russian into English:

1. Скелетная мышца это форма полосатой мышечной ткани.

2. Скелетная мышца находится под контролем соматической нервной системы.

3. Большинство скелетных мышц прикрепляются к костям пучками коллагеновых волокон, известных как сухожилия (tendons).

4. Скелетная мышца состоит из индивидуальных компонентов, называемых мышечные волокна.

5. Мышечные волокна сформированы вследствие слияния миобластов (myoblasts).

6. Скелетная мышца имеет полосатый внешний вид.


XVI. Read and translate some “Fun Facts” about muscular system:


Do you know that:


* Thereare more than 600 muscles in the human body

* There are twenty muscles in each hand

* 200 muscles are used in each step you take

* There are about 60 muscles in your face. Smiling is easier than frowning. It takes 20 muscles to smile and over 40 to frown.

* The longest muscle in the body is the sartorius, from the outside of the hip, down and across to the inside of the knee. It rotates the thigh outwards and bends the knee.

* The smallest muscle in the body is the stapedius, deep in the ear. It is only 5 mm long and thinner than cotton thread. It is involved in hearing.

* The biggest muscle in the body is the gluteus maximus, in the buttock. It pulls the leg backwards powerfully for walking, running and climbing steps.
