  • 1. Tissues!
    • Four types of tissues
      • Connective
      • Muscular
      • Epithelial
      • Nervous
  • 2. Epithelial Tissues
    • A sheet of cells that covers a body's surface
    • Lines a body's cavity
    • The major function of epithelial tissue includes protection, secretion, absorption, and filtration.
    • Cells can be thin, flat to cubic to elongated
    Simple Stratified
  • 3. Simple Epithelial
    • Three types of simple epithelial tissues
      • Simple squamous
      • Simple cubiodal
      • Simple columnar
    Squamous Cubiodal Stratified Columnar
  • 4. Simple Squamous Epithelial
    • Allows passage of materials by diffusion and filtration where protection is important.
    • All Squamous cells are flat cells with an irregular flattened shape and their cytoplasm is sparse
    • Thin and permeable this epithelium is found where filtration or the exchange of substance by rapid diffusion
    • A one-cell layer of simple squamous epithelium forms the alveoli of the respiratory membrane.
    Simple Stratified
  • 5. Simple Cubiodal Epithelial
    • Consists of a single layer of cells as tall as they are wide

    • Functions are secretion and absorption
    • Located in the kidney tubules, ducts and secretory portions of small glands
    Simple Stratified
  • 6. Simple columnar epithelial
    • Columnar epithelial cells occur in one or more layers
    • Functions are absorption, secretion of mucus enzymes
    • Lines the digestive tract from the stomach through the rectum
    • Displays cilia on their free surfaces, which moves substance or cells through an internal passageway.
    Simple Stratified
  • 7. Stratified Epithelial
    • Contains two or more cell layers
    • The basal cells divide and push apically to replace the older surface cells
    • More durable than simple epithelial
    • protects
    Transitional Squamous Cubiodal columnar Pseudostratified
  • 8. Stratified Squamous Epithelial
    • Thick membrane composed if several layers
    • Protects underlying tissues in areas subjected to abrasion
    • Found in the areas subjected to wear and tear, and its surface cells are being rubbed away and replaced by division of its basal cells
    Simple Stratified
  • 9. Pseudostratified columnar epithelium
    • Single layer of cells of differing heights, some do not reach free surface.
    • The nuclei lie at different levels above the basement membrane
    • Secretes and absorbs substances
    Simple Stratified
  • 10. Stratified cuboidal epithelial
    • Rare
    • Found in the ducts of some of the larger glands
    • Has two layers of cubiodal cells
    • The cells function in secretion and protection
    Simple Stratified
  • 11. Stratified columnar epithelium
    • Limited distribution in the body
    • Small amount are found in the pharynx
    • Occurs at transition areas or junctions between two other types of epithelium
    Simple Stratified
  • 12. Transitional Epithelium
    • Forms the lining of hollow urniary organs
    • The cells of the basal layer are cubiodal or columnar
    • Stretches readily and permits distension of urniary organ by contained urine
    • Resembles both stratified squamous and stratified cubiodal
    Simple Stratified
  • 13. Muscular Tissues
    • Highly cellular
    • Three types of muscle tissue
      • Skeletal
      • Cardiac
      • smooth
    Voluntary Involuntary
  • 14. Voluntary muscle
    • Contractile tissue of the body
    • Derived from the mesodermal layer of embyonic germ cells
  • 15. Skeletal muscle
    • Tissue is packed by connective tissue organs, they are called skeletal muscles
    • Attached to the bones of the skeleton
    • Form flesh of the body
    • Pull on bones or skin causing body movements
    Voluntary Involuntary
  • 16. Involuntary muscle
    • Produce movements over which we have no control
    • Made up of bundles of fibers which are composed of elongated cells
    Smooth Cardiac
  • 17. Cardiac Muscle
    • Found in the wall of the heart
    • Its contractions help propel blood through the blood vessels
    • Located in the walls of the heart
    Smooth Involuntary
  • 18. Smooth muscle
    • Its cells have no visible striations
    • Spindle shaped cells with central nuclei
    • Cells arranged closely to form sheets
    • Located in the walls of hollow organs
    Cardiac Involuntary
  • 19. Connective tissue
    • Found everywhere in the body
    • Widely distrubuted of the primary tissues
    • Four main classes of connective tissue
      • Connective tissue proper
      • Cartilage
      • Bone tissue
      • blood
    Connective tissue Proper Cartilage Blood Bone
