How are human and animal physiology different?
The interesting thing is that there isn't a ton of differences! ...does this mean we are animals?
While I feel that we are very similar to animals in many ways, we are very different. What comes to mind for me would be intelligence and communication. As humans, we seem to have a far more advanced brain and ways of thinking than animals, and we are extremely social creatures with all humans. However, it is possible that we simply do not understand animals ways of thinking and communication, and they could be looking at us the same exact way.
I feel like although all animals have different physiology, including humans, the biggest difference between us and most animals are our brains. We have the largest cerebral cortex. This frontal cortex gives us the ability to do all of the things that make us 'superior' including intelligence, social skills, and planning ahead among other things.This gives us a huge advantage on this earth compared to other organisms.
While I agree, I feel like there is so much of our brain that is unused and with other animals it may be the same way.
It's difficult, and it's all really based on perception. We think that since we don't understand other forms of communication, they might be inferior, but for all we know, maybe some of these other species have actually evolved in some aspects we just can't understand.
Outline the sliding filament theory.
Someone asked about this very same question on the Topic D posting. here's another website that outlines the process: https://www.iptaustralia.com.au/fitness-articles/musculoskeletal-system/muscle-physiology
