4 types of tissue
epithelial, connective, muscle, nerve
5 types of epithelial tissue
endothelium, mesothelium, simple, stratified, pseudostratified
type of epithelial tissue that surrounds the heart, blood, and lymph vessels.
type of epithelial tissue that covers the surfaces of serous membranes.
simple epithelial tissue
type of epithelial tissue that has one layer of cells
stratified epithelial tissue
type of epithelial tissue that has three or more layers
pseudostratified epithelial tissue
type of epithelial tissue that has one layer but appears to have more.
7 types of connective tissue
bone, cartilage, dense fibrous, loose arieolar, reticular, adipose, hematopoietic
type of connective tissue that is hard, unbendable, supports the body
webike connective tissue that supports the nerves and capilaries
type of connective tissue that is elastic and stretchable, connects adjacent body structures
dense fibrous tissue
type of connective tissue that is strong and bendable, found in tendons and ligaments
type of connective tissue that is fatty, pads and protects
type of connective tissue that is firm and bendable
type of connective tssue that produces blood, found in the bone marrow and lymphatic system
3 types of muscle tissue
skeletal, smooth, cardiac
skeletal muscle tissue
type of muscle tissue that is striated and voluntary
smooth muscle tissue
type of muscle tissue that is smooth and involuntary
cardiac muscle tissue
type of muscle tissue that is striated but involuntary
composed of nerve cells, nerve fibers, and supporting tissue called neuralgia
