TISSUES
GROUP OF SIMILAR CELLS THAT FORM A SPECIFIC FUNCIONT
HISTOLOGY
SCIENCE THAT IS THE STUDY OF TISSUES
CELLS->TISSUES->ORGANS->SYSTEMS
EPITHELIAL
TYPE OF TISSUE THE "C"OVERS THE BODY SURFACES, CAVITIES, ORGANS, DUCTS/TUBES & GLANDS
CONNECTIVE
TYPE OF TISSUE THE "C"ONNECTS, PROTECTS & SUPPORTS, BINDS ORGANS TOGETHER, STORES FAT(ENERGY), IMMUNITY.

SIMPLE
ONE LAYER OF EPITHELIUM TISSUE CELLS
STRATIFIED
TWO OR MORE LAYERS OF EPITHELIUM TISSUE CELLS
PSEUDOSTRATIFIED COLUMNAR
SINGLE LAYERED BUT APPEARS TO BE MULTI-LAYERED BECAUSE OF POSITION OF NUCLEAS OF COLUMNAR CELLS
NON-CILIATED SIMPLE COLUMNAR
EPITHELIUM CELLS W/ MICROVILLI (INCR SA FOR WATER/NUTR ABSORP)
AND GOBLET CELLS (SECRET MUCUS FOR LUBRIC. AND PROTECTION)

STRATIFIED SQUAMOUS
STRATIFED CUBOIDAL
STRATIFIED COLUMNAR
EPITHELIUM THAT HAS SUPERFICIAL FLAT DEHYDRATED LAYER WH SLOUGHS OFF WHILE VIABLE DEEPER LAYER MOVES UPWARD.
EXOCRINE GLAND
"EXITS" SWEAT GLAND; DUCTS/TUBES WH EXCRETE ONTO THE SURFAC OF SKIN OR ORGAN (PERSPIRATION, OIL, WAS DIGESTIVE ENZYMES)
ENDOCRINE GLAND
"WITHIN" HORMONES; DUCTLESS--PRODUCTS ENTER DIRECTLY INTO THE FLUID OR BLOOD(PITIUTARY, THROID, ADRENAL, PINEAL, PANDCREAS)

EMBRYONIC, GERMINA, PRIMORDIAL
MEMBRANES
EPITHELIAL LAYER + UNDERLYING CONNECTIVE TUSSUE LAYER
MUCOUS MEMBRANES
OPENS TO EXTERIOR. SECREETES UCUS. LUBRICATION. TRAPS FOR. PARTICLES IN RESP. TRACT; ABSORPT. & SECRET. OF ENZYMES IN GI TRACT.
SEROUS MEMBRANES
"WATER" MEMBRANE; LINES INNER BODY CAVITIES IN TWO LAYERS. INNER VISCERAL LAYER(NEXT TO ORGAN); & PARITAL LAYER (ADJAC TO WALL CONTAINING THE ORGAN)
