Epithelial Tissue

Epithelial tissue is meant to help with protection, secretion, absorption, excretion, and sensory reception. Their are three different shapes of epithelial tissue, squamous, cuboidal, and columnar. Each of these shapes classifies epithelial tissue through its function. Simple squamous allows passage of materials through the body. It is very thin which helps with this. Stratified squamous protects underlying tissues, through its thicker multiple layers. Simple cuboidal is meant to help with secretion and absorption. Its cube like shape helps store things. Stratified cuboidal is used for protection. Its thick cube shape builds a barrier. Simple columnar helps with secretion and absorption. The long tube-like shape helps this. Stratified columnar protects and secretes with its thick layers. Pseudostratified columnar secretes with its weird tube shape. Transitional epithelium stretches with its distinctive, flexible oval shape.

Connective Tissue

Connective tissue's function is to support, anchor, and connect. Bone, cartilage, Dense connective tissue, loose connective tissue, and blood are the five types of connective tissues. All of these have a matrix which helps distinguish it. Bone supports and its density helps that. Cartilage reduces friction, aids in movement and support, and is responsible for growth. It is tough which helps with support and friction. It is also flexible which is helpful for movement and a growing human body. Dense connective tissue is meant for interconnection. It is not incredibly thick and tough which aids in this. Loose connective tissue connects and holds things in place. It is loose enough to connect things but strong enough to hold it in place. Blood regulates the body systems, maintains homeostasis, supplies nutrients and oxygen to tissues, remove waste, and transport signals through the body. It is fluid and thin enough to do all of this.

Nerve Tissue

Nerve tissue allows a person to respond to their environment. Its many synapses help transport the reactions from the environment.

Muscle Tissue is the Best.

Skeletal muscle is connected to all the bones in the body which enables the movement and the striations allow friction. Smooth muscle has no striation which allows easy movement of involuntary muscle. Cardiac muscle combines a little bit of the other types, meaning it is smooth enough to pump blood but has enough friction to not let it go to far.
