sphincters are: skeletal muscles
epimysium: dense layer of collagen fibre surrounding muscle
perimysium fibrous layer dividing skeletal muscle into bundles of fibres called muscle fascicles
endomysium delicate connective tissue surrounding individual muscle fibres
bundle of collagen fibres that connect muscle to bone is a: tendon
sheet of collagen fibres that connect muscle to bone is a: aponeurosis
difference between a tendon and an aponeurosis: tendon is a fibre, aponeurosis is a sheet that connects muscles to a broader area of bone
sarcolemma is a: muscle cell membrane
sarcoplasm is a: muscle cell cytoplasm
