Skeletal muscle. Digitally enhanced light micrograph of a thin section through a muscle, stained for elastic tissue. This is skeletal muscle, with the structure of the parallel strands of muscle fibres seen in cross-section here, forming bundles called fascicles surrounded by perimysium. Skeletal muscle is responsible for voluntary muscle movement in the body, including the leg and arm muscles.
