Function of Muscular System
3 types of muscle tissue
Cardiac - A type of muscle that works the heart.
Smooth - A type of muscle tissue that is not controllable, which means it cannot be consciously controlled. It is found in walls of hollow organs such as the intestines, blood vessels, bladder, and uterus.
Skeletal - Large body muscles responsible for movement.
