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.

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.

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 :-)

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.

Summary of the events of contraction and relaxation in a skeletal muscle fiber

Neuromuscular junction. The nerve (in white) transmits its signal to the skeletal muscle (grey tubes) to generate contraction.
