Striated muscle tissue
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
|Striated muscle tissue|
|Latin||textus muscularis striatus|
- Skeletal striated muscle
- Branchiomeric muscle (embryologically different from skeletal muscle)
- Cardiac muscle (heart muscle)
Contractions in striated muscles are voluntary, except for the heart muscle, in which contractions are involuntary. Cardiac muscle is often treated separately from the other striated muscles, as it has somewhat different characteristics.
