TermDefinition
Epithelial Tissue Covers entire outer surface of the body
Simple Epithelia Capillary walls & alveoli
Simple Squamous single layer of squamous cells w/ an underlying basement membrane
simple cuboidal single layer of cuboidal cells resting on a basement membrane
simple columnar refers to a single layer of columnar cells resting on its basement membrane
Pseudo stratified single layer of columnar cells
stratified epithelia they protect. they are found in tissue that are exposed to everyday wear and tear
connective tissue the most abundant type in body. EX: blood, under skin, in bone, and in organs
loose connective tissue contains fibers that are loosely arranged around cells.
Areolar Tissue made up of collagen and elastin fibers in a gel-like intercellular matrix
Adipose Tissue type of loose tissue. Connective tissue that is composed primarily of adipocytes.
Dense Fibrous Connective tissue composed of fibroblasts and an intercellular matrix that contains many collagen & elastic Fibers
Tendons Attach muscle to bone
Ligaments attach bone to bone
nervous tissue makes up the brain, spinal cord, and nerves consists of two types of cells: neurons and neuroglia
Muscle tissue composed of cells that are shorted, or contracted
skeletal tissue attached to bone move the skeleton, maintain posture, and stabilize joints
Smooth tissue (visceral muscle) found in the walls of the viscera, or organs, such as stomach, intestines, & urinary bladder
Cardiac tissue FOUUND ONLY IN THE HEART where it functions to pump blood into vast network of blood vessels
membranes thin sheets of tissue that cover surfaces, line body cavities and surround organs
Epithelial include the cutaneous membrane (skin), the mucous membrane, and the serous membranes. these membranes contain both an epithelial sheet and an underlying layer of connective tissue
Cutaneous (skin) Outer layer of skin (epidermis) is stratified squamous epithelium
mucous line all body cavities that open to the exterior of the body
serous line the ventral body cavities, which are not open to the exterior of the body
pleurae lines the walls of the thoracic cavity (found in the thoracic cavity) (THINK LUNG)
Pericardium (THINK LUNG) partially surrounds the heart (offers sling like support to the heart)
Peritoneum (found in the abdominal cavity) lines it's walls & the visceral peritoneum, covers the abdominal organs
