  1. What are the 4 basic tissue types?
    Epithelial, Connective, Muscle, Nervous
  2. Where can epithelium be found?
    • Lining body structures
    • outer surfaces
    • surfaces of internal structures (lungs)
    • inner surfaces (blood vessels)
  3. Image Upload
    • Simple Squamous Epithelium
    • Function: Secretion, diffusion, filtration
    • Location: Blood vessels, alveoli of the lungs.
  4. Image Upload
    • Simple Cuboidal Epithelium
    • Function: Secretion, absorption
    • Location: Kidney tubules, surface of ovaries
  5. Image Upload
    • Simple Columnar Epithelium
    • Function: Secretion, absorption
    • Location: Most of digestive tract, gall bladder.
  6. Image Upload
    • Goblet Cell(found among columnar epithelium)
    • Function: Secretion
    • Location: Digestive tract, respiratory tract.
  7. Image Upload
    • Ciliated Columnar Epithelium
    • Function: Absorption, secretion.
    • Location: Trachea, uterine tubes.
  8. What are some of the functions of connective tissue?
    • Connect parts
    • Bind and support
    • Protect
    • Insulate
    • Transportation
  9. Connective tissues; types of fibers.
    • Collagen: more rigid for support.
    • Elastin: more elastic for movement.
    • Reticular: in between, allows for support and movement.
