    different muscle tissues, skeletal, cardiac, and smooth. Skeletal muscle tissue cells are long, striated, and have many nuclei. Cardiac muscle tissue, just like the skeletal is also in striations. These cells are short and branched. Unlike, the skeletal muscle tissue these cells die single nucleated. They are connected by intercalated discs. Smooth muscle tissue is not striated. Its Cells are short and spindle shaped. The cardiac muscle is also nucleated. In a Cardiac Muscle is a…

    Muscle Movement Report

    • 543 Words
    • 3 Pages

    The ability for muscles to contract and shorten to produce movement lies within its structure at a cellular level. The muscle organ is surrounded by a fibrous connective tissue called the epimysium, continuous to the perimysium, which separates the organ into small bundles called fascicles. Each fascicle can be further separated into muscle fibers by the endomysium. The plasma membrane of an individual muscle fiber is called the sarcolemma, which plays a major role in generating an action along…

    voluntarily. There are three layers of connective tissue in the skeletal muscle known as epimysium which surrounds the entire muscle, perimysium which surrounds muscle fibers known as fascicles, and endomysium which contains capillaries and nerve fibers. Cardiac muscle is found in the heart, also striated but is involuntary meaning it beats on its own without stimulation. They are also more dependent on aerobic metabolism for the energy they use to continue contracting. Smooth muscle known as…

    One of the main goals in the field of exercise science is to determine methods of enhancing performance during exercise or competition. When comparing methods of performance enhancement two essential theories come to mind: utilization of the stretch-shortening cycle (SSC) and post activation potentiation (PAP), which both result from pre-activation (Fukutani, Misaki & Isaka, 2016, Nibali, Chapman, Robergs & Drinkwater, 2013) The SSC focuses on increases in muscle force output through a…

    Explanation of EMG signals EMG stands for electromyography. Muscle fibres generate tiny electrical currents prior to the production of muscle force. These currents are generated by the exchange of ions across muscle fibres membranes, a part of the signalling process for the muscle fibres to contract. EMG is the signal made, it can be measured by applying conductive elements or electrodes to the skin surface, or invasively with the muscle. When using EMG, tiny devices named electrodes are used…
