Skeletal, Cardiac & Smooth.
Also called striated muscle, it is attached to the skeleton by tendons; contraction of skeletal muscle is under voluntary control.
Also called heart muscle, it contains interlocking involuntary straited muscle as well as smooth muscle, wich allow the electrical impulses to pass quickly across the muscle fibers.
Found in the walls of all the hollow organs of the body (except the heart). Its contractions reduces the size of these structures; movement generally is considered involuntary (not under voluntary control)
