It is the nerves which give the muscles instructions for their tasks. The nervous system is the true conductor of movement; the muscles merely execute movement. Muscle tissue is made up of millions of muscle cells.

Here the gelatinous core stays where it is and throughout the rotation, the diagonal fibres of the fibre ring tighten around the core. This increases the pressure inside the gelatinous core. The core resists the fibre ring, so to speak, and thus limits the movement. During the course of the day the water content within the gelatinous core is reduced by the weight bearing – not a great deal, but quite noticeably. So we can lose up to 2cm in height during a single day. When we lie down and sleep at night, the reduction in pressure permits the gelatinous core to refill, so that by morning we have regained our normal height.
