Functions and Locations

Elastic connective Tissue Location:Muscular walls of the tunica media of arteries, vocal cords Function:Elasticity
Dense Irregular Connective Tissue Location: deep layer of the skin, white of eye, cartilage, and bone Function: provides strength, resists stress and strain against tearing
Hyaline Cartilage Location: ends of bones, ribs, larynx, trachea Function: reduce friction at joints, keeps air passages open
Adipose Tissue Location: hypodermis, around kidneys, eyeballs, mammary glands Function: store lipids as inclusions, warmth, protection of some organs
Layers of Thin Skin 1)stratum corneum 2)stratum granulosum 3)stratum spinosum 4)stratum basale 5) dermis
Dense Regular Connective Tissue Location:tendons, ligaments, and vocal cords Function: binds bone together or muscle to bone
Smooth Muscle Location: small intestines, uterus, skin with hair Function: involuntary, contract uterus, regulates diameter of blood vessels, and makes hair stand up (goosebumps)
Bone Locations: skeleton Function: protects soft organs, locomotion along with muscles, scaffold for body
Skeletal muscle Location: attached to skeletal bones all around the body Function: voluntary control, help to move your body
Cardiac Muscle Location: heart and heart tissues Function: involuntary, for contractions of the heart, pumping blood throughout the body
Transitional Epithelium Location: urinary bladder, umbilical cord, ureter Function: allows stretching
Stratified Squamous Epithelium Location: epidermis, oral cavity, esophagus, vagina Function: resists abrasion, prevents microbial infections, retards water loss in skin
Areolar Connective Tissue Location: around many organs, attach epithelia to lower layers Function: binds epithelia to lower layers, insulates organs from infection
Simple Columnar Epithelium Location: stomach and intestines Function: absorption and secretion
Simple Cuboidal Epithelium Location: kidney tubules, liver Function: absorption and secretion
Reticular Connective Tissue Location: spleen, thymus, lymph nodes Function: provides internal skeleton for soft organs
Psuedostratified Ciliated Columnar Epithelium Location: respiratory passages, trachea Function: secretion of mucous, trapping dust particles, and moving them away from the lungs
Fibrocartilage Location: pubis symphysis, intervertabral discs Function: protect from wear and tear at weight bearing or stressed joints
Elastic Cartilage Location: external ear, epiglottis Function: provides flexible framework
Layers of Thick Skin 1)surface of skin 2)stratum corneum 3)stratus lucidum 4)stratum granulosum 5)stratum spinosum 6)stratum basale 7)basement membrane 8) dermis
Blood Location: heart and blood vessels Function: transport or gases, nutrients, hormones, water, and other material through the body
Nervous Tissue Location: brain and spinal cord Function: transmission of information, assimilation
Simple Squamous Epithellium Location: lungs, inside heart, and blood vessels Function: diffussion, reduction of friction, secretion of serous fluid
