Epithelium, Connective, Muscle and Nervous Tissue

4 types of tissue
STUDY
PLAY
Simple Squamous
single layer of flat cells, usually forms membranes, line body caveats, lines lungs and capillaries, absorption, and secretion
Simple Cuboidal
single layer cube- like cells, common in glands and their ducts, form walls of kidney tubules cover the ovaries, absorption, and secretion
Simple Columnar
single layer of tall cells, often includes goblets cells, which produces mucus, lines digestive, absorption and secretion
Pseudo stratified Columnar
single layer, but some cells are shorter than other, often look like double cell layer, sometime ciliated, such as in respiratory tract, absorption, and secretion
Stratified Squamous
cells at the free edge are flatted found as protective covering where friction is common, skin, mouth, esophagus, and protection
Transitional
shape is depends upon the amount of stretching, lines organs of the urinary system, change in shape and filtration
Areolar
most widely distributed connective tissue, soft, pliable, contains fiber types, underneath your skin, hold organs in place, lubricate, nourish and epithelial tissue
Blood
surrounded by fluid, visible clotting, transport
Adipose
fat glucose predominate large lipid deposit, depends on body fat, insulates, protect, and service fuel storage
Reticular
delicate network of interwoven fiber, spleen, inside neutron, bone marrow, support (stroma), and lymphoid organ
Dense
main matrix collagen fiber, cell are fibroblast, tendon- attach muscle to bone, ligament- attach bone to bone, support, and movement
Hyaline Cartilage
most common cartilage, abundant fiber and rubbery matrix, entire fetal skeleton, and movement
Fibrocartilage
high compressible, between vertebrae and joints, and cushions
Osseous (Bone)
composed of: bone cells, hard matrix, large number of collage fiber, skeleton system, used to protect, and support of body
Skeletal
controlled voluntarily, cell- attach to connective tissue, striated, more than 1 nucleus, skeleton attach to bone, and movement
Cardiac
involuntarily, cells attach to other cardiac, intercalated disk, striated, one nucleus, found in heart, movement, and pumps the heart
Smooth
involuntary, attach to other smooth muscle, not visible, striation, one nucleus, arrow all hollow organs, and movement
Nervous
neutron, nerve support, brain, spinal cord, irritability, and conductively impulse to other areas of the body
