The four tissue types 1) Epithelial Tissue 2) Connective tissue 3) Nervous tissue 4) Muscle Tissues
What do Epithelial Tissues do 1) Protection 2) Absorption 3) Filtration 4) Secretion:
Are there different types of epithelial tissue? Epithelial Tissue is classified by the shape of the cells and the number of layers it has.
The Number of Layers 1) Simple Epithelial Tissue will have a single layer of cells. 2) Stratified Epithelia will have several (multiple) layers.
The Shape of its Cells 1) Squamous: These are flat cells that resemble fish scales. In fact, “squam” means scale. 2) Cuboidal: shaped like dice or sugar cubes. 3) Columnar: as the name implies, these cells are tall and cylindrical.
The three classifications of muscle tissue include 1. Skeletal –attached to bones. E.g. triceps and biceps 2. Cardiac- Heart Muscle 3. Smooth – Abdominal Muscles, for example.
Identify the 4 types of membranes found in the body. 1) cutaneous membranes; 2) serous membrane 3) mucous membranes; and 4) synovial membranes.
What body cavities are lined by serous membranes and synovial membranes? 1)covers the lungs 2)covers the abdominal/organs 3)covers the heart
The three classifications of muscle tissue 1. Skeletal –attached to bones. E.g. triceps and biceps 2. Cardiac- Heart Muscle 3. Smooth – Abdominal Muscles, for example.
What does synovial fluid do and where is it found? The synovial fluid lubricates the ends of the bones allowing them to move freely.

what are the ideal growth conditions for bacteria 1)host 2)warmth 3)darkness 4)oxygen 5)moisture 6)food
what is the main function of nervous tissue and it's primary properties? its primary properties are irritability (the capacity to various physical and chemical agents) and conductivity (the ability to transmit the resulting reaction from one point to another)
What is the main difference between Endocrine Glands and Exocrine Glands? Give an example of each type. The dermis contains exocrine glands (remember what these are). These include sweat glands and sebaceous glands
Describe the effects of aging on our tissues. as skin ages it becomes thinner
What is the permanent replacement of normal tissue with scar tissue called? it calls fibrosis
the primary functions of the skin include 1 protection 2 regulate temperature 3 synthesize vitamin d 4 trigger Immune response repair mechanisms 5 store fats 6 excrete wastes 7 produce melanin
what is skin cancer called? Melanoma
What is the skin’s natural “sunblock” called Melanocytes, another type of skin cell, protect the skin by producing the brown pigment melanin, which helps filter ultraviolet (UV) light (irradiation)
