Epithelial tissue
Protection,absorption,filtration,excretion,secretion,sensory reception.
Connective Tissue
Binding and supporting,protecting, insulating ,storing reserve fuel, transporting substances within body.
Muscular tissue
Well-vascularized tissues that are responsible for most types of body movement
Nervous tissue
Neurons transmit electrical signals from sensory receptors and to effectors (muscles and glands ) ; supporting cells and protect neurons ; controls body functions
Skeletal Muscle
Voluntary movement; locomotion, manipulation of the environment; facial expression; voluntary control
Cardiac muscle
As it contracts, it propels blood into the circulation; involuntary control
Smooth muscle
Propels substances or objects (food, urine,a baby) along internal passages; involuntary muscle
Nervous tissue
Neurons transmit electrical signals from sensory receptors and to effectors (muscles and glands ) ; supporting cells support and protect.
simple squamous epithelium
allows materials to pass by diffusion and filtration in sites where protection is not important; secretes lubricating substances in serosae
simple cubodial epithelium
secretion and absorption
simple columnar epithelium
absorption; secretion of mucus, enzymes, and other substances; ciliated type propels mucus (or reproductive cells) by ciliary action
stratified squamous epithelium
Function: protects underlying tissues in areas subject to abrasion

Location: nonkeratinized type forms the moist lining of the esophagus, mouth, and vagina; keratinized type forms the epidermis of the skin, a dry membrane.
psudostratified columnar epithelium
Secrets substances ,particularly mucus, propulsion of mucus by ciliary action
transitional epithelium
Contact and expand in order to the degree of discretion needed
areolar connective tissue
Function: wraps and cushions organs

Location: widely distributed under epithelia of body
