  • Tissues of the BodyCells combine to form tissues, and tissues combine to form organsCells combine to form four primary tissuesEpithelial tissueConnective tissueMuscle tissue Nervous tissue

  • Tissue Types in the HumanEpithelialprimarily used for protectionConnectiveprimarily used for supportNerveprimarily used for controlMuscleprimarily used for movement

  • Epithelial TissueConsists almost entirely of cells, little extracellular materialOne side always exposed to:body exterior organ cavity

    Shapes of Epithelial Tissue Squamous (meaning scale) - flat cellsCuboidalColumnarSimpleStratifiedTransitional

  • Functions of EpitheliaProvide Physical Protection- protect surfaces from abrasion, dehydration, chemical and biological agents.Control Permeability- regulates molecules that enter or leave through the surface.

  • Simple: just one layer or cell shapeStratified: multiple layers and cell shapesClasses of Epithelia

  • Simple Epithelia


    Cell shape




    Endothelium (lines blood vessels), mesothelium (serous lining of celom)



    Walls of glands



    Lining of gut tube; sometimes with cilia like lining of uterine tube


    Flat cells give rise to columns

    With cilia in respiratory tubes to move mucous/particles out of lungs

  • Kidney tubules, glands, lining of terminal bronchioles, etc.

  • Glands, bronchioles, stomach, intestines, bile ducts, etc.

  • Bladder lining, ureters, and superior urethra

    Types of Connective Tissue

  • Areolar Tissue

  • Adipose Tissue200 X(bv = blood vessel)(arrow: adipocyte nucleus)bv

  • Reticular Tissue

  • Dense Regular Tissue(Tendons & Ligaments)Horse Tendon x100

    arrow: orientation of collagen fibers

  • Dense Irregular Tissue(Dermis of Skin & Muscle Fascia)

  • Hyalin Cartilage X 250arrows: Perichondrial bordersHyaline Cartilage perichondrium on the leftchondrocytes form in the perichondrium and move out into the tissue

  • Fibrocartilage

  • Elastic Cartilage(note numerous chondrocytes and elastic fibers)

  • Nerves(Summary)Anatomy: Dendrites, Soma, Axon Hillock, Axon, Terminal Bouton, Synaptic cleftDefinitions: Membrane Potential, Afferent, Efferent, Neurotransmitter, Depolarization, EPSP, IPSP, Inhibition, etc.If EPSP + IPSP = Threshold.AP is generated along axon (All or none)Neurons may be excitatory (Na +) or inhibitory (Ca++ or Cl -)
