Nerve tissue conducts signals from body parts through the spinal cord to the brain. The brain also sends signals back to all body parts. 1.Sensory input 2.Integration 3. Contr…ols of muscles and glands 4.Homeostasis 5.Mental Activity It directs and controls movement. Nervous tissue contains various types of nerve cells. The purposeof nervous tissue is so that one can feel pain when hurt orinjured.
Cardiac muscle tissue and connective tissue would be found in the heart.
Nervous tissue is the main component of the two parts of the nervous system which are the brain and spinal cord of the central nervous system. It is also the main componen…t of the branching peripheral nerves of the peripheral nervous system, which regulates and controls bodily functions and activity.
The functional unit of nervous tissue is known as the neuron. This is made up of the cell body, axon and dendrite.
nervous tissue are the nerves going to the heart that control an individuals heart rate. It also sends messages to the important functions of your body.
Sympathetic innervation of the heart is from cardiac accelerator nerves descending from the uppermost thoracic sympathetic ganglia and the cervical sympathetic ganglia. …Parasympathetic innervation comes from the vagus nerve (Cranial Nerve X). These nerves continue into the walls of the heart and provide autonomic innervation, which can only modify the rate and contractility of the heart. Inside the heart, intrinsic pacemaking comes from the sinoatrial node, which automatically paces the heart due to the existence of "funny currents" (seriously, that's what they're called) that depolarize the node. The SA node is located in the right atrium and the depolarization follows tracks to the left atrium and the atrioventricular node. The AV node can automatically depolarize, but it does so at a lower rate than the SA node, so the SA node overrides the AV nodal rhythm. From the AV node, the electrical signal goes through Bundles of His and Purkinje Fibers to deliver a wave of depolarization to the cardiac muscle. These cells are modified cardiac myocytes between the endocardium and the myocardium specialized for the transmission of electrical impulse. Technically, these are not nerves, though they function similar to nerves. Beyond that, there are gap junctions between cardiac myocytes in the intercalated disks that allow for the coordinated contraction of cardiac muscle. In other words, the cells are arranged like a net and the depolarization and contraction of one cell leads to the depolarization and contraction of the cells next to it that have not yet been depolarized.
Probably somewhere between the neck and the upper thy
The two are related in that nervous tissues helps detect stimuli, and muscle tissue helps avoid or embrace it. This is important to animals to be able to avoid dangerous s…timuli.
It controls the function of the muscles of the wall of the stomach and the muscular sphincter. Also, the nervous tissue controls the secretory function of the stomach.
Which is the area of specialized nervous tissue in the heart that is known as the pacemaker of the heart?
the brain, spinal cord and peripheral nerves
You will find that heart is entirely made of cardiac muscle.
