MUSCLE TISSUE: Muscle tissue is important for movement and is highly vascular to meet its energy demands. They are highly excitable cells specialized for contraction. There are three types of muscle tissue: skeletal, smooth and, cardiac. Refer to individual pictures for detailed descriptions.

Types of Muscle Tissue

These three pictures provide a close up of the three different types of muscle tissue. They show what cardiac, skeletal and smooth muscle tissue look like.

3 types of muscle

Muscle tissue are highly specialized to contract or shorten, to produce movement. The three types of muscles: Skeletal muscle, cardiac muscle, smooth muscle.

No bones about it; your bones can’t do much without muscles to move them. You have three major types of muscle tissue known as skeletal, smooth, and cardiac muscle.

The body contains three types of muscle tissue: (a) skeletal muscle, (b) smooth muscle, and (c) cardiac muscle. (Same magnification)

Always a good review. Chapter 9: Muscles and Muscles Tissue

It's always important to understand the mechanics behind anything you do. This diagram helps explain how the nervous systems interacts with muscle, and muscle fibers to signal a muscular contraction.

SMOOTH MUSCLE (400X) is non-striated, and the individual muscle fibers are very thin and spindle-shaped. The nucleus of each muscle cell is visible here as elongated purple structures.

Smooth Muscle Tissue Description: Shorter cells with a single, central nucleus Function: Involuntary movements of internal organs Location: Walls of hollow internal organs
