The structure of skeletal muscle tissue!

This is the structure of a skeletal muscle. Even though this is a zoomed in picture it still shows that skeletal muscles are much larger in size in comparison to cardiac and smooth.

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.

Diagram of muscle tissue.  I love this.  No wonder we are so strong!  Look at all those fibers packed in there!  I remember learning this in Anatomy and Physiology and nerding out :-)

Alan Dindo- Always thought about doing this with red/pink yarn to represent muscle tissue after seeing the Body Worlds exhibit.
