Differentiate tissue types from organ systems of the human body and give examples of each (epithelial, etc., etc.)
epithelial tissues are sheets of closely packed cells that cover your body surface and line your internal organs and activities (lining of the outside of the lung)
connective tissue consists of a sparce population of cells scattered thoughout an extracellular material called a matrix; (6 types: loose, fibrous, adipose, cartilage, bone, blood)
muscle tissue is the most abundant tissue and consists of long cells called muscle fibers. (3 types: skeletal that attaches to your bones by tendons, cardiac that forms the contractile tissue of your heart, and smooth (lack of striations) which is found in the walls of your disgestive tract, arteries and other internal organs)
Nervous tissue senses stimuli and rapidly transmits information. found in your brain and spinal cord.
