      • Thymic corpuscle
      • Thymus located anterior to heart and posterior to sternum
      • Only known function is the production of T-Lymphocyte cells
      • Organ provides for the maturation of all of the T cells that you will need by adulthood and then goes dormant.
  8. Image Upload
    • Tonsil tissue
    • Identify the crypt, which is an invagination of the mucosal epithelium, and into which bacteria and other foreign matter is trapped to be worked into the lymphoid tissue to be destroyed.
    • The tonsil is the lobe with follicles containing germinal centers surrounded by scattered lymphocytes.
