4 types of tissue
epithelial, connective, muscle, and nervous
epithelial
covering, lining, packed tightly, no blood vessels
epithelial tissue classified by what 3 shapes?
squamus(flat, scale like), cubodial (cube shape), columnar( colum)
simple squamus
alveoli of lung (functional unit)
epithelial tissue classified by arrangement
simple(one layer)
stratified(many layers of cell smae shape)
trasitional(several layers of cells different shapes)
stratified squamus
skin
simple colmnar
lining of stomach, intestines (contains Goblet cells which produce mucus)
transitional
several layers, subject to stretching like the bladder
psuedostratified
trachea
Glandular
cubodial, specialized for the glands
exocrie gland
flows into a specific place (salvary gland)
endocrine gland
flows into the blood stream (throid gland)
Matrix
gives each type of connective tissue its unique properities
areolar

3)elastic cartilage- soft and supple=pinna of the ear

Hemopoietic
(blood producing)connective tissue is responsible for the formation of red and white blood cells. Like=spleen, red bone marrow
muscle tissue. 3 types
1)skeletal- the most abundant- voluntary- biceps brachii

2)Cardiac- heart muscle

3)smooth- (visceral) walls of the blood vessels, gastrointestional and respirtory tract.
peristalsis
the movement of food through the digestive tract.
nervous tissue
communication of the body structures and control of body functions
Neuron
nerve cell
neurogilla
holds neurons together, connective and supporting cells of the neurons system
