We will be discussing the functional differences between the three types of muscle tissue: Cardiac, Smooth and Skeletal. This discussion will involve all three chapters on muscle tissue and the musculoskeletal system as we bring the concepts of muscle function together.
1. What are the cellular differences and similarities between these three tissues?
2. What are the functional differences between these three tissues?
3. How does their form aid in these functional differences?
4. In your opinion what was the most complex concept about muscle function? Did you require any additional sources to understand or was there a particular resource in the course that helped you the most.
