epithelial, connective, muscle, nervous

Blood is a type of

connective tissue

simple epithelial means

single layer of epithelial cells and the underlying basal lamina

Stratified epithelial means

two or more layers of epithelial and the underlying basal lamina

Squamous cell

a flat cell with a flattened nucleus
