Tissues In the Body

By: Dextiny McCain

Epithelial Tissue

  • One type of epithelial tissue is the stratified squamous. This type of epithelial tissue aides in protection of the underlying tissues. The picture shows the epithelial tissue protecting the connective tissue, which is underneath the epithelial tissue.

Connective Tissue

  • There are six types of connective tissue. One type is the bone. The bone's main functions include supporting and protecting organs, mineral storage, and blood cell production. This pictures labels the bone with saying it is forming cells.

Muscle Tissue

  • There are three types of muscle tissue, one of them being the skeletal muscle tissue. The skeletal muscle tissue helps in body movement. This image shows the skeltal muscle of the arm and how it bends.

Nervous Tissue

  • Nervous tissue is found in the brain, spinal cord, and nerves. The main function of the nervous tissue is to generate and transmit nerve impulses to and from body organs through neurons. The image below shows how nerve imputes are sent through neurons.

Select & Defend

I think the nervous tissue is has the best location because this is how we know when to do certain things and when not to. If we want to walk neurons will send a message to the brain basically saying "get up and walk." Without that tissue being in its place we would be very confused when trying to do certain things.
