Heart muscle is named cardiac muscle. This muscle is striated but involuntary. Cells are ribbon shaped, branched; ends are connected by intercalated discs.


Heart muscle is functionally syncytial, and there are two separate syncytial masses around heart wall: atrial myocardium and ventricular myocardium.
