Question details

For muscle anatomy identification, you will need to identify the name of the muscle, the origin, the insertion, and the action of the muscle labeled on the models. You can find origins/insertions in your lab manual, but you can also find the specific origins and insertions we are looking for on the laminated cards for the clay modeling in lab. For actions, please identify the primary action of the muscle. For example for the gluteus maximus, the primary actions are extension and rotation of the hip and maintain knee extension. Many muscles also perform other actions in which they are supporting other muscles. You do not have to include these, just focus on primary action. Please make sure you also know the individual muscles of the iliopsoas, quadriceps, hamstrings, and pelvic floor.

pelvic floor (levator ani and external urethral sphincter)- NO origins and insertions assessed for these muscles, just identification on models and actions.
