Regarding this, what is the function of the smooth muscle?
Functions of Smooth Muscles Smooth muscles move food through the digestive tract. In one's eye the pupillary sphincter muscles is responsible for shrinking the size of the pupil. In arteries, smooth muscle movements maintain the arteries' diameter. Smooth muscle regulates air flow in lungs.
Secondly, where is smooth cardiac and skeletal muscle found? Smooth muscle fibers are located in walls of hollow visceral organs, except the heart, appear spindle-shaped, and are also under involuntary control. Skeletal muscle fibers occur in muscles which are attached to the skeleton. They are striated in appearance and are under voluntary control.
Subsequently, question is, what is the difference between cardiac and smooth muscle?
1. Cardiac muscles are striated unlike smooth muscles. 2. Cardiac muscles are found in the heart walls and aorta while smooth muscles are found in the majority of blood vessels and internal organs.
What is the function of skeletal muscle tissue?
Skeletal muscle is a voluntary muscle, which means that we can actively control its function. It's attached to the bone and forms a distinct organ of muscle tissue, blood vessels, tendons, and nerves that covers our bones and allows movement.
