Goodcare LPN Biology C 4 Tissues, Glands, and Membranes

4 main types of tissues in the human body Epithelial Connective Muscle Nervous
Has a “Free” (or Apical) Surface Epithelial Tissue
Epithelial Tissue categorized as simple, stratified, or pseudostratified
Connected Below to a Basement Layer Epithelial Tissue
May be squamous, cuboidal, or columnar Epithelial Tissue
Gets its name because it changes its shape Transitional Epithelium
Specialized to produce some sort of secretions and are usually associated with columnar or cuboidal epithelial tissue. Glandular epithelial cells
May be endocrine or exocrine. Glands
Some of these cells are referred to as mucous glands and goblet cells Gland Cells
These tissue mind, provide support and protection, serve as frameworks, fill spaces, store fat, produce blood cells, protect against infections, and help repair tissue damage Connective tissues
These tissue have an abundant extracellular matrix and the fact that they are farther apart than cells of other tissue types Connective tissues
These tissue may be solid, semi-solid, or even liquid Connective tissue
The extracellular matrix is composed of protein fibers and ground substance Connective tissue
Cell types in connective tissue Fibroblasts, macrophages, and mast cells
Circulating Connective Tissue Loose connective tissue Dense connective tissue Cartilage Bone Tissue
Loose connective tissue Areolar tissue Adipose tissue Reticular tissue
Dense connective tissue Tendons Ligaments
Includes areolar tissue and Adipose tissue Loose connective tissue
Tissue may be irregular or regular dense connective tissue
Cartilage may be Hyaline cartilage Elastic cartilage Fibrocartilage
This tissue's main characteristic is its ability to contract and relax, enabling movement Muscle tissue
Skeletal, smooth and cardiac are the 3 main types of what tissue Muscle tissue
The most highly specialized type of tissue Nervous Tissue
Composed of special conducting cells called neurons Nervous Tissue
Neuroglia Makes up most of the nerve tissue
Provide help and support for the highly specialized but delicate neurons Neuroglia
Thin, sheet like structures composed of epithelium and underlying connective tissue Epithelial membranes
The major types of epithelial membranes Serous Mucous Cutaneous
A different type, composed entirely of connective tissues and associated with bones Synovial membrane
Pleural Serous Pericardium Peritoneum Specific types of Serous Membranes
Associated with the lungs and thoracic cavity. Pleural Membrane
Associated with the heart Serous Pericardium
Associated with the abdomen, especially digestive system Peritoneum
Frequently associated with openings to the body. Form linings to digestive, respiratory, etc systems. Rich in goblet cells to produce mucous Mucous Membranes
Types of Connective Tissue Membranes Synovial, Fascia, Superficial fascia, Deep fascia, Fibrous pericardium
Mostly associated with joints, but also form meninges. Synovial membrane (tissue)
Covers or separates Fascia
Associated with skin, also called subcutaneous fascia. Superficial fascia
Located in and around muscle and nerve fibers and blood vessels. Deep fascia
Helps protect the heart Fibrous pericardium
Form meninges Synovial tissue
