Elementary Tissue Types 3 and 4

Quiz yourself by thinking what should be in each of the black spaces below before clicking on it to display the answer.

This tissue is the mediation of movement. It's unit are elongated cells with contractile properties   Muscular  
Three basic types of muscle tissue   Striated, Smooth, and Cardiac  
This muscle tissue moves parts of the skeleton and is voluntary which is controlled by the CNS, has long fibers with striations and examples include the muscles for speech production.   Striated  
Architecture of muscle   Morphologies  
3 Morphologies of Striated muscle   parallel, radiating, pennate  
The morphology that can contract up to half of their size and known for their movement.   Parallel  
The morphology that radiates out, has less movement but more strength and is known for its power   Radiating  
The morphology that combines for the ability to contract, is strong and fast, and is known for its power and movement   Pennate  
This muscle tissue does not connect at a point and is found in the glandular, intestines, and vascular system. These fibers are spindle shaped, they dont cross, involuntary, contracts slowly, and is controlled by the ANS.   Smooth  
This muscle tissue is striated but somewhat scattered and involuntary.   Cardiac  
Something that surrounds muscle like a fascia   Perimysium  
This provides the influx to move to muscles   Nerve supply  
___ is determined by the diameter as well as morphology of a muscle   Strength  
___ can be up to 50% of the length of a muscle with parallel fibers   Contraction  
___ of muscles work the opposite way   Antagonists  
____ is when the muscle tension is more than the resistance causing movement. When the muscle shortens   Isotonic contraction  
Is when the tension is less than resistance causing no movement. The muscle lengthens.   Isometric contraction  
A functional unit for muscle action. The motor neuron, axon, and muscle fibers innervated. A section of muscle that is contracted by one motor neuron and the fibers its serving. The efferent nerve fiber.   Motor unit  
The functional unit for muscle action that is the nerve cell.   Motor neuron  
The electro-physiological activity of a motor neuron, and can be monitored with an EMG. Is a functional unit for muscle action.   Muscle action potential  
This specialized tissue with a predominance of cells that communicate through impulses. Moves our speech muscles.   Nervous tisue  
The unit of nervous tissue   Neuron  
Three different direction of impulses...   afferent, efferent, and association/processing  
The impulse that is towards the body and sensory/input   afferent  
The impulse that is motor/excitatory   efferent  
The impulse that is of sensory and motor info as well as cognition, attention, attitude, and memory.   association/processing  
Connection of nervous tissue: neuron to___   neuron  
Connection of nervous tissue: neuron to ___   sensory receptor cell  
Connection of nervous tissue: neuron to___   muscle fibers  
Prime movers are helped by ___ which are muscles that stabilize structures.   Synergists
