List the different types of tissue: Epithelial, Connective, Nervous, Muscle
Single layer of flattened cells with disc-shaped nuclei and sparse cytoplasm Epithelia: Simple Squamous
Function is for diffusion and filtration epithelia: simple squamous
presented in the kidney glomeruli, lining of heart, blood vessels, lymphatic vessels, and serosae epithelia: simple squamous
single layer of cube-like cells with large, spherical central nuclei epithelia: simple cuboidal
function in secretion and absorption epithelia: simple cuboidal
presented in kidney tubules, ducts and secretory portions of small glands, and ovary surface epithelia: simple cuboidal
single layer of tall cells with oval nuclei; many contain cilia epitheila: simple columnar
function in absorption and secretion epithelia: simple columnar
nonciliated type line digestive tract and gallbladder epithelia: simple columnar
ciliated type line small bronchi, uterine tubes, and some regions of the uterus epithelia: simple columnar
single layer of cells with different heights; some do not reachthe free surface epithelia: pseudostratified columnar
functions in secretions and propulsion of mucus epithelia: pseudostratified columnar
prested in the male sperm-carrying ducts (nonciliated) and trachea (ciliated) epithelia: pseudostratified columnar
thick membrane compsed of several layers of cells epithelia: stratified squamous
function in protection of underlying areas subjected to abrasion epithelia: stratified squamous
forms the external part of the skin's epidermis (keratinized cells), and linings of the esophagus, mouth, and vagina (nonkeratinized cells) epithelia: stratified squamous
several cell layers, basal cells are cuboidal, surface cells are dome shaped epithelia: trasitional
lines the urinary bladder, ureters, and part of the urethra epithelia: trasitional
epithelia cell type that is rare in the body epithelia: stratified cuboidal
connective tissue found in the embryo embryonic
connective tissue widely distributed throughout the body loose areolar connective tissue
connective tissue found under the skin, around the kidneys, within the abdomen, and in the breast loose adipose connective tissue
connective tissue found in lymph nodes, bone marrow, and the spleen loose reticular connective tissue
connective tissue found in tendons, ligaments, and aponeurose dense regular
connective tissue found in the dermis, submucosa of the digestive tract, and fibrous organ capsules dense irregular
connective tissue found in embryonic skeleton, the end of long bones, nose, trachea, and larynx hyaline cartilage
connective tissue that supports the external ear (pinna) and the epiglottis elastic cartilage
connective tissue found in intervertebral discs, the pubic symphysis, and in discs of the knee joint fibrocartilage cartilage
found in skeletal muscles that attach to bones or skin muscle tissue: skeletal
found in the brain, spinal cord, and peripheral nerves nervous tissue
found in walls the heart muscle tissue: cardiac
found in walls of hollow organs muscle tissue: smooth
layer of the skin epidermis, dermis, hypodermis
layer of the epidermis (superficial to deep) Stratum corneum, stratum lucidum, stratum granulosum, stratum spinosum, stratum basale
three major types of skin cancer basal cell carcinoma, squamous cells carcinoma, melanoma
most common type of skin cancer basal cell carcinoma
most dangerous type of skin cacner melanoma
bones that are longer than they are wide long bone
humerus is an example of ____ bone long
bones that are thin, flattened and a bit curved flat
sternum, and most skull bones are example of ____ bone flat
bone memebrane that is a double-layered protective membrane periosteum
bone membrane that is richly supplied with nerve fibers, blood, and lymphatic vessels, which enter the bone via nutrient foramina perisoteum
bone membrane that is the delicate membrane covering internal surfaces of bone endosteum
general structure of the synovial joint articular cartilage, joint (synovial) cavity, articular capsule, synovial fluid, reinforcing ligaments
most common chronic arthritis; often called "wear-and-tear" arthritis osteoarthritis
considered a non-inflammatory condition osteoarthritis
chronic, inflammatory, autoimmune disease of unknown cause with and insidious onset rheumatoid arthritis
deposition of uric acid crystals in jonts and soft tissues followed by inflammation response gouty arthritis
two major way of tissue repair regeneration and fibrosis
tissue repair in which replacement of destroyed tissue with the same kind of tissue regeneration
tissue repair which involves proliferation of fibrous connective tissue called scar tissue fibrosis
in tissue repain what is blood clot replaced with granulation tissue
after granulation tissue, what tissue replaces it? epithelial tissue
