tissues
groups of cells similiar
in structure and function
tissue types
epithelium,connective,
nervous,muscle
organ
structure of 2 or more tissues
that perform a cerain function
for the body
histology
the study of tissues
describe epithelial
tissue, epithelium
covers surfaces
epithelial functions
protection, absorbtion, filtration,
excretion,secretion and sesory
reception
characteristics of
epithelial tissue
cells sheetlike,polarity 1 free
surface,supported by connective
tissue,no blood supply,regeneration
kinds of epithlia
simple, statified,
squamous(scalelike),
cubodial,columnar,
pseudostratified,
transitional
epithelial tissue
that is vascular
glandular epithelia
epithelial cells forming
glands specialize in
remove materials from the
blood and manufacture into
new materials
2 types of glands
endocrine, and
exocrine glands
endocrine gland
ductless gland
secretions all hormones
are exturded directly into
blood
exocrine glands
retain ducts secretions empty
through ducts to epithelial
glands include sweat,oil,liver
pancreas both external and
internal
ground substance
interstitial fluid, cell adhesion
protein,proteoglycans may be
liquid gel-like or hard
connective tissue
function
protect, support, and bind
together other tissues of
body
osseous tissue
protect and support other
body tissues connective
dense connective tissue
ligaments and tendons
bind bones together
skeletal muscles to
bones connectivef`
areolar connective tissue
soft packaging material
cushions and protects body
organs connective
adipose tissue
fat tissue provides insulation
and source of stored food
connective
hematopoietic tissue
blood forming replenishes
the body's supply of red
blood cells connective
charecteristics of
connective tissue
cartiliages=avascular
tendons and ligaments poor
vacularization
other rich supply of
blood vessels
extracellular matrix
nonliving material
between cells seen
in connective tissue
fibers that provide
support to connective
tissue
collagen(white) elastic(yellow)
reticular(fine collagen)
collagen most abundant
mast cell
large darkly staining
granules in its cytoplasm
muscle tissue
highly specialized to
contract and produces
most types of body
movement
cardiac muscle
found in heart has
striations cardiac cells
branching unincleate cells
fit at intercalated discs
involuntary control
skeletal muscle
attached to skeleton
voluntary control
cells are long,cylindrical
and multinucleated
smooth muscle
visceral found in walls
of hollow organs(digestive
and urinary,uterus, blood
vessels
types of muscle
tissue
smooth,cardiac,
skeletal
types of connective
tissue
(bone)osseous, dense,
areolar,adipose,hematopoietic
nervous tissue
major cell
populations
neuroglia and neurons
neuroglia
protect, support,
and insulate more
delicate neurons
neurons
highly specialized to
receive stimuli and conduct
waves of impulses to
all parts of body
