Cardiac Muscle
in heart, circulates blood, maintains blood pressure
Smooth Muscle
found in walls of blood vessels, digestic, respiratory, urinary, and reproductive organs
Neural Tissue
Brain and spinal cord, conduct chemical impulses in body,
Communicate through electrical events effecting the plasma membrane, longest cell in body, receive and carry information in body. axon- carry dendrite-receive
Provide physical support for neural tissue, maintains chemical composition, provide nutrients to neurons, defend the tissue from infection
speeds up process of removal of waste products and toxins. mast cells produce histamine and heparin.
