Everything that is conceived by our brain finds its expression in the muscular system. You can express an idea by the help of muscles of larynx, tongue and mouth (act of speaking), the muscles of fingers (act of writing) or by the skeletal muscles (act of dancing, running, etc.) Body muscles help an individual to stand erect, walk, move, bend and pick up objects. They help in breathing, blood circulation and functioning of other internal organ
