SMOOTH MUSCLE (400X) is non-striated, and the individual muscle fibers are very thin and spindle-shaped. The nucleus of each muscle cell is visible here as elongated purple structures.

No bones about it; your bones can’t do much without muscles to move them. You have three major types of muscle tissue known as skeletal, smooth, and cardiac muscle. Learn about all 11 organ systems with the Amoeba Sisters! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nnjmrrQ6xOs

Migraines may be a vascular disorder. Genomic data provides new insight into this poorly understood disorder.

Galanin. From contraction of smooth muscle tissue in the bowel to inhibition of insulinsecretion from the pancreas - or augmenting then pai allieviating effect of morphine. Galanin is predominantly an inhibitory, hyperpolarizing neuropeptide and as such inhibits neurotransmitter release. Linked to an acute antidepressive efficacy, probably by a mechanism related to that of therapeutic sleep deprivation.
