example of intramembranous
A tissue whose cells are specialized for contraction and enable movement of the body and body parts
A tissue that forms the brain, spinal cord, and nerves.
Simple Squamous Epithelium
Thin flat cells that have an irregular outline. The air sacs of the lungs
simple cuboidal epithelium
single layer of cubed shape cells. Secretion and absorption. Found in kidney tubules
Simple Columnar Epithelium
A single layer of cube shaped cells.
Forms kidneys tubules, ducts of some glands, and the surface layer of the ovaries.
Absorption and secretion
Pseudostratified Ciliated Columnar Epithelium
A single layer of ciliated columnar cells that appers to be more than one layer of cells, contains scattered goblet cells
Lines most of the upper respiratory tract.
Cilia remove secreted mucus and entrapped particles.
Consists of more than one layer of cells, which makes them more durable to abrasion.
Cells are pushed toward the surface of the tissue as more new cells are formed below them, surface layers are continuously lost as they die and are rubbed off.
Stratified Squamous Epithelium
Keratinized type forms the epidermis of the skin
Nonkeratinized type lines the mouth, esophagus, and vagina.
Several layers of large, rounded cells that become flattened when stretched. Lines the interior of the urinary bladder and stretches as the bladder fills with urine.
Loose connective tissue
A seimfluid ground substance fills the spaces between the cells and fibers.
1: Attaches the skin to underlying muscles
2: Provides a supporting framework for internal organs, nerves, and blood vessels
3: Is a site for many immune reactions
Formed of closely packed fat cells with little intercultural material.
Storage of excess nutrients as fat; occurs primarily under skin and around internal organs
3 types: Red blood, White blood cells, and Platelets. Specialized connective tissue that transport substances to and from cells.
The hardest and most rigid connective tissue whose matrix consists of calcium salts.
Matrix is deposited in concentric rings (lamellae)
Central canals contain blood vessels and nerves
Vll. Facial nerve
sensory for taste; motor fibers to the face
Vlll. Vestibulocochlear nerve
sensory for balance and hearing
-recieve impulses from receptors
-"interpret" them producing feelings and sensations
Organ of Corti
found inside the cochlea
