BioKnowledgy Presentation on 11.2 movement (AHL) from Chris Paine.
Here is another presentation, taking you through muscle contraction step by step:
Two video lessons on 11.2 Movement: a 7m video from Luiz Mello and a 15m video from Briscucation.
A 5m TED-Ed intro to How the Muscular System works and from Crash Course, Muscles, part 1 – Muscle Cells: Crash Course A&P #21 in 10m and Muscles, part 2 – Organismal Level: Crash Course A&P #22 in 10m 40s.
Paul Andersen explains The Muscular System in 5m 59s.
In Crash Course Biology #30 – The Skeletal System: It’s ALIVE!, Hank introduces us to the framework of our bodies, our skeleton and in #31 – Big Guns: The Muscular System, he tells us the story of the complicated chemical dance that allows our skeletal muscles to contract and relax.

BioKnowledgy Presentation on 6.5 Neurons and synapses from Chris Paine
6.5 Neurons & Synapses notes to complete (created by Mrs Green).
IB Bio Topic 6.5 Pt A Neurons a 4m video lesson and IB Bio Topic 6.5 Pt B Neurons another 4m video lesson, from roxprice.
How do Nerves Carry Information? a 6m40s lesson from Naked Science Scrapbook.
In Crash Course Biology #26 – The Nervous System, Hank begins a series of videos on organ systems with a look at the nervous system and all of the things that it is responsible for in the body.
Fantastic animated tutorials from McGraw Hill Education – the Nerve Impulse, Action Potential propagation in unmyelinated axons, Voltage-gated channels & the action potential, Sodium-Potassium exchange pump, how it works & the sodium channel involved in nerve transmission. Also transmission across a synapse.
From Sinauer Associates we have an animated, narrated tutorial on Reflex Arcs which also includes a quiz and here are animated, narrated tutorials on the synapse and action potentials.
Lovely infographic – just click on it to enlarge.
