Stimulation of hormone production by neuron
Muscle contraction with shortening of the muscle
Stiffening of the body after death
Neurotransmitter that tells muscles when to contract
What happens without the above chemical
Muscle that is not striated and not voluntary; found in the walls of hollow visceral organs
Cycle that regenerates glucose from lactic acid
Muscle that is striated and voluntary; attaches to and covers bony skeleton
Endocrine signaling within the cell
