3 Types of Muscle Tissue: The Function of Skeletal, Cardiac, and Smooth Muscle
In the body, there are three types of muscle : skeletal striated , smooth, and cardiac. Skeletal muscle , attached to bones, is responsible for skeletal movements. The peripheral portion of the central nervous system CNS controls the skeletal muscles. Thus, these muscles are under conscious, or voluntary, control. The basic unit is the muscle fiber with many nuclei. These muscle fibers are striated having transverse streaks and each acts independently of neighboring muscle fibers.
What to know about cardiac muscle tissue
This activity focuses on muscle tissue. Students should complete the worksheet before you compare and contrast the different types of muscle cells. A muscle is a tissue that performs different functions which cause some sort of movement to take place. There are three different types of muscle cells: skeletal, smooth, and cardiac. The various muscles of our bodies serve as the engines or powerhouses of the body and are so constructed to provide speed and power. Each muscle cell is designed for various functions that are needed by a certain area in the body. Muscle tissue has the ability to contract or to shorten, thus producing movement of internal and external body parts.
Skeletal muscle is one of three major muscle types, the others being cardiac muscle and smooth muscle. It is a form of striated muscle tissue which is under the voluntary control of the somatic nervous system. A skeletal muscle refers to multiple bundles fascicles of cells joined together called muscle fibers.
Muscle classification: muscle tissue may be classified according to a morphological classification or a functional classification. Morphological classification based on structure. There are two types of muscle based on the morphological classification system.
Nutrients that animals obtained are used for ATP production, which are fuels for the production of work by muscles, among other physiological processes in the animal bodies. Depending on what type of muscle tissues animals are using, they will use ATP differently to generate work. Overall, muscle cells are specialized for contraction. Muscles allow for motions such as walking, and they also facilitate bodily processes such as respiration and digestion. The body contains three types of muscle tissue: skeletal muscle, cardiac muscle, and smooth muscle Figure 6.
Cardiac muscle tissue, or myocardium, is a specialized type of muscle tissue that forms the heart. This muscle tissue, which contracts and releases involuntarily, is responsible for keeping the heart pumping blood around the body. The human body contains three different kinds of muscle tissue: skeletal, smooth, and cardiac.
