In this tutorial, learn how to access Muscle Actions to learn about the actions, agonists, and synergists in Human Anatomy Atlas 2023＋.
Atlas has over 70 different muscle actions!
There are three ways to access them:
- In the Menu screen select the Muscle Actions at the top right.
All the muscle actions are displayed by region.

- Select the info button to read information about the muscle action.
This includes a description of the action, the prime movers, and the synergists.
- All the muscles on-screen are agonists involved in the muscle action.

We took the best-selling reference books and collaborated with educators and health practitioners to choose what was once learned through muscle charts, and turned it into interactive 3D!
