Tissues Exam 2

four types of tissue epithelium, connective, muscle, nervous
characteristics of muscle. provides movement for the body. contains fibers made up of myosin and actin protein filaments.
function of epithelial. absorption, secretion, and protection.
characteristics of epithelial. lines body cavities. covers free surfaces. includes ducts and glands. tightly connected to each other. exposed to a space on their free surface. tightly connected to deeper tissue called the basement membrane.
characteristics of nervous. conduct electrical impulses. composed of one cell type-the neuron. classified by function and structure.
neurons have... nucleus, several dendrites, and one or several axons.
normal pathway of nerves follows... dendrite to cell body to axon -produces a substance called a neurotransmitter -allows impulse to jump -neuron to neuron -neuron to muscle -neuron to gland
functions of nerves. sensory, motor, and association.
structure of nerves. unipolar, bipolar, and multipolar.
location of simple squamos. lungs, aveoli capillaries, ear cochlea, heart lining, serous membranes.
simple squamos function. rapid exchange: diffusion, osmosis, and filtration.
simple squamos- general. fried egg-scale like, saran wrap thin, joined end to end, and low wear and tear.
characteristics of epithelial tissue. has a free edge, packed end to end, avascular, and has nerve supply.
simple cuboidal location. kidney tubeles, glands, ducts, and anterior lens of the eye.
function of simple cuboidal. rapid exchange: secretion and absorption.
simple cuboidal- general. round nuclei. secretion of mucus, sweat, etc.
simple columnar location. GI tract from stomach to anus, ducts, glands, and gall bladder.
simple columnar function. secrete and absorb.
simple columnar- general. oval nuclei. contains microvilli (small hairs) and goblet cells.
stratifed squamos location. skin, mouth, vagina, esophagus, and eye.
function of stratified squamos and stratified cuboidal. protection.
stratified squamos- general. several layers, great wear, deep cell, can be cuboidal/columnar, keratinized=skin, nonkeratinized=mouth, esophagus, vagina, and tongue.
stratified cuboidal location. ducts of adult sweat glands. male uretha.
stratified cuboidal- general. circular nucleus.
stratified columnar location. submandibular salivary gland and male uretha. anal mucous membrane.
stratified columnar function. protect and secrete.
