Smooth muscle tissue -- Smooth muscle tissue reduces or enlarges involuntarily the diameter of vessels they surround, such as the intestines. One of its secondary functions is to help moving fluids through the body.

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

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.

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.

This photo displays cardiac muscle tissue. This tissue type is striated, branched, and has 1-2 nuclei. Cardiac muscle tissue can be recognized by intercalated disks (dark thickened part). Cardiac muscle cells are bigger than smooth muscle cells and smaller than skeletal muscle cells. They control involuntary movement (the heart).

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.

Muscle tissue - A tissue composed of cells or fibers, the contraction of which produces movement in the body.

Hot stone massage therapy melts away tension, eases muscle stiffness and increases circulation and metabolism. Each 1 ½ -hour hot stone massage therapy session promotes deeper muscle relaxation through the placement of smooth, water-heated stones at key points on the body.

Skeletal muscle is responsible for all voluntary movements, such as running . Also involved in  involuntary actions, such as breathing, shivering and maintaining posture.  Cardiac muscle is responsible for the beating action of the heart.  Smooth muscle creates the movement in many hollow internal organs, such as the gut, bladder, and blood vessels, and is under the control of the autonomic nervous system.  All 3 muscle types use the same sliding filament mechanism.  (6/18/2013) Anatomy…

This picture shows what each muscle type looks like under a microscope. The cardiac and skeletal muscles are striated.

Muscle tissue is elongated, stimulated to contract, and vascular (needs a lot of blood supply for energy). There are three types as depicted in the image: skeletal - striated, cylindrical, multi-nucleiated, and the biggest cell of the three types. Cardiac - striated, branched, 1-2 nuclei, has intercalated discs, and are the second biggest. Intercalated discs have desmosomes and gap junctions for molecule and liquid transport. Smooth - nonstriated, spindle shaped, 1 nuclei, and are the…
