17 Cards in this Set

  • Front
  • Back
portion of your body (portions of tissues) that consist of epithelial and connective tissue
Serous Membrane
Lines the thoracic and abdominal cavities
- simple squamous cells produce the serous fluid
Mucus Membranes
lines all canals that are open to the outside.
-goblet cells produce the mucus
Skeletal muscle tissue (description of cells)
- cylindrical
- multi-nucleated
- striated
- not mitotic
- very long (several inches)
- made up of 300+ cells
Skeletal muscle tissue (where is it found?)
-found in the body wall and operates lips, urethra, and anus
-found around the skeleton
-outside the bladder and suroounding the anal canal and urethra (allows decision for bathroom)
Skeletal muscle tissue (purpose)
- muscle that moves the skeleton
- for volutary muscle movement
Cardiac Muscle tissue (general)
-wraps around the heart
-heart beast 70 times a minute, 200 while workign out
-has many reserves
Cardiac Muscle tissue (cells)
-Not mitotic
-small and mostly single nucleated
-has short branched cells
Cardiac Muscle tissue (short branched cells)
-allows for impulses to go around dead cells
- allows impulses to continue to destination and by-pass any blockage
Cardiac Muscle tissue (intercalated disks)
-found b/t sequential cardiac muscle cells
-consists of the membranes of the cells along with the desmosomes and gap junctions
Cardiac Muscle tissue (heat production)
helps to keep our body's temperature at 98.6 due to constant use of the muscles
Cardiac Muscle tissue (silent heart attacks)
-not big enough to have the symptoms of normal heart attacks
- conists of little blocks of the smaller portions of the coronal vessels by dead cells that were starved.
Smooth muscle tissue (cells)
-small cells that are elongated (spindle shaped) and have a single nucleus
- Mitotic
Smooth muscle tissue (Where is it found?)
-Found in walls of canals/vessels that transport
Digestive- starts 1/3 of the way down esophagus to the end
-found in major blood vessels to regulate blood pressure
-found in ureters to transport urine and waste from kidneys to bladder
-found deep in lungs
-found anywhere things are moved/propelled through
Smooth muscle tissue (heat production)
-muscles are operating 24/7
-cells wear out adn need to be replaced
-1000 chemical reactions are going on right now
-optinum temp. for reactions is 98.6 so muscles contractiosn keep this temp up.
Nervous Tissue (neurons)
-Not mitotic
-cells are specialized to carry an electrical current called an impulse
Nervous tissue (glial cells)
-support, nurture, and protect neurons
