Muscular Tissues

All of the body’s movement is made possible by muscular tissue. Muscle contractions result in the movement of body parts. Skeletal muscle, smooth muscle, and cardiac muscle are the three forms of muscular tissue.

Skeletal muscle tissue

The striated or striped skeletal (voluntary) muscle fiber is controlled by the individual’s will. As a result, “voluntary” muscle tissue is a common term for it. Muscles in the skeletal system are frequently found connected to the skeleton.
Muscle fibers contract and relax when activated by a nerve fiber’s action.
Movement is the result of the interplay between muscle and nerve fibers.

Smooth muscle tissue

This person has no control over the smooth or non-striated muscle fibers. Thus the term “involuntary” for this type of muscular tissue.
Walls of hollow organs, such as the stomach, intestines, blood arteries, and urine bladder, include smooth muscle tissue. They transport food through your digestive system while also restricting blood vessels and allowing you to pee more easily.

Cardiac muscle tissue

There is a complicated network of interlocking cells in the heart’s cardiac muscle, which is striated and linked end to end.
Only the heart contains cardiac muscles, which are not controlled by the brain. These organs are in charge of transferring blood from the heart’s chambers to various blood arteries.

Nerve tissue

Nerve tissue is the body’s most intricately layered organ. It is the brain’s, spinal cord’s, and nerves’ material. The oxygen and nutrients required by nerve tissue are greater than those required by any other organ or tissue in the body. It is the neuron that serves as the building block of all nerve tissue. Cells in every area of the body get stimuli from this particular cell, which then transmits impulses to all of them.
