4. What are the differences between the four different types of tissue?
Epithelial Tissue is tissue that lines most body surfaces, and it protects other tissues from dehydration and physical damage. Nervous Tissue makes up the nervous system and consists of nerve cells and their supporting cells. They carry information throughout the body. Connective Tissue is tissue that supports, protects and insulates the body. It includes fat, cartilage, bone, tendons, and blood. Muscle Tissue is made of three kinds that enable the movement of body structures by muscle contraction. The three kinds are skeletal, smooth, and cardiac muscles.
