Skeletal muscle

Types of Muscle Tissue

These three pictures provide a close up of the three different types of muscle tissue. They show what cardiac, skeletal and smooth muscle tissue look like.

muscle contraction

This diagram lists the basic steps of both smooth and skeletal muscle contraction. It starts from when the muscle gets excited and walks down to the muscle contraction.

There are over 600 skeletal muscles in the human body. The most powerful muscles in the body are those that run along the spine. They maintain posture and provide the strength for lifting and pushing.

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

This infographic describes skeletal muscles, which are structurally different from heart muscle and the smooth muscle that controls digestion. Unlike heart and smooth msucle, skeletal muscle can be voluntarily controlled. Skeletal muscle is also called striated muscle because of its striped appearance.
