Muscle Structure Diagram
Anatomy of the Muscular System Chapter 10281 Figure 10-3Structure of a muscle organ. Note that the connective tissue coverings, the epimysium, perimy- sium, and endomysium, are continuous with each other and with the tendon. Note also that muscle ﬁbers are held together by the perimysium in groups called fascicles.

And, together with the scaffolding provided by the skeleton, muscles also determine the form and contours of our body. Contraction of individual muscle cells is ultimately re- sponsible for purposeful movement. In Chapter 11 the phys- iology of muscular contraction is discussed.
