Cardiac tissues are joined by cardiomyocytes ( single nucleated) to support synchronization. Theywork as a simple functional organ, or syncylum and skeletal muscles are made of multinucleated muscle fibers and have no intercalated discs.Smooth muscles are under involuntary control because they appear non-striated, are short, and produce weaker contractions. You cannot control this type of movement.The nervous tissue is a componant of the nervous system that is mainly made of neurons and supportive cells which are called neuroglia. Special adaptations are they percieve stimuli and generate nerve impulses to various body organs.Simple columnar epitheliums are found in areas like the digestive tract. They specialize in absorption. Microvilli is an adaptation to assist the intestine with absorption.
