Yes, some body functions are involuntary because if you had to think about them in order for them to work and you got distracted, what was that...........


kndykisz
yep......I dont think there is any other way that it can cause you sure cant think of it and make your heart pump......and its a good thing is pumps involuntary i would hate to have to think of pumping my heart all the time just to stay alive I have enough on my mind without having to add that to it :)

Yes. If you took out someones heart it would still beat and pump blood.

yeah i learned that in 6th grade. its cause the heart is made up of cardiac muscle which is controlled by the cerebellum meaning that it works without us having to think about it.

Well, I hope so, otherwise we'd have to spend all our time reminding it to do so - even when we were asleep! lol

OMG! You didn't? Is this what you learned in school today? Keep learning okay sunshine. You are so special right now!

The heart is an involuntary muscle, which means it moves without your conscious control over it.
Your leg muscles are voluntary muscles, which means they move when you consciously intend for them to move.
