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.

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

Smooth muscle tissue is formed in the walls of hollow organs such as the stomach, uterus and blood vessels. IT constricts and enlarge to propel things.

Week 3.   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. Learn about all 11 organ systems with the Amoeba Sisters! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nnjmrrQ6xOs, w3

Galanin. From contraction of smooth muscle tissue in the bowel to inhibition of insulinsecretion from the pancreas - or augmenting then pai allieviating effect of morphine. Galanin is predominantly an inhibitory, hyperpolarizing neuropeptide and as such inhibits neurotransmitter release. Linked to an acute antidepressive efficacy, probably by a mechanism related to that of therapeutic sleep deprivation.
