  1. epithelial tissue definition
    • covers body & lines body cavities
    • cells packed closely together with little matrix
    • classified by shape
  2. types of epithelial tissue
    • squamous
    • cuboidal
    • columnar
    • transitional (can be stretched)
  3. types of epithelial tissue layers
    • simple= single
    • stratified= layers
  4. connective tissue definition
    • most abundant and widely distributed tissue 
    • many diff. types, appearances, & functions
    • relatively few cells in intracellular matrix
  5. types of connective tissue
    • areolar
    • adipose (fat)
    • fibrous
    • bone
    • cartilage
    • blood
  6. areolar tissue
    glue holds organs together
  7. adipose (fat)
    lipid storage
  8. fibrous
    • strong fibers 
    • ex: tendon
  9. bone
    • matrix is calcified
    • support & protection
  10. cartilage
    chondrocyte is a cell type
  11. blood
    • fluid matrix
    • transportation
  12. types of muscle tissue
    • skeletal
    • rough
    • smooth
    • cardiac
  13. skeletal tissue
    • attaches to bones
    • also called straited or voluntary
    • control is voluntary 
    • straiations appearant when viewed under microscope
  14. smooth tissue
    • also called nonstriated voluntary (visceral) or involuntary
    • no cross striations
    • foud in blood vessels and other tube-shaped organs
  15. cardiac tissue
    • also called straited involuntary 
    • composes heart wall
    • usu. can't control contractions
  16. types of nervous tissue
    • nerons
    • glia
  17. neurons
    • conducting cells
    • rapid comm. btwn body structures and control body functions
  18. neuron structure
    • cell body
    • one axon carries nerve impulse away from cell body
    • 1+ carry nerve impulses toward cell body
  19. glia
    • (neuroglia)
    • supportive & connects cells
