Different Tissue Types

Did you know that our body has four different tissue types?

Epithelial Tissue

This tissue is a sheet of cells that covers the body surface or lines a body cavity. The covering and lining epithileum forms th outer layer of the skin and lines open cavities of the digestive and respiratory systems. Glandular epithelileum surrounds glands that are in the body.

Epithelial tissue has five different charateristics and they are: Polarity, specialized contact, supported by connective tissue, avascular and innervated, and regeneration.

Connective Tissue

Connective tissue is the tissue that is responsible for connecting other tissues in the body. The cells in connective tissue are scattered throughout a extracellular matrix of proteins and glycoproteins that are connected to a basement membrane. The 5 types of connective tissue would be: bone, cartilage, dense connective tissue, loos connective tissue, and blood.

Muscle Tissue

There are three muscle tissues that include: Smooth Skeletal, and Cardiac. Smooth muscle tissue consists of thin-elongated cells. These cells are not controlled by the brain, therefore they are involuntary. They form the muscle cells in the walls of hollow organs. The skeletal muscle is the most abundant tissue in the vertebrate body. The skeletal muscle tissue does help with the movement of the skeletal bones. These muscles are slo involved in the breathing process. The Cardiac muscle tissue is found in the walls of the heart. This tissue plays a huge role in the ventricles of the heart.

Nervous Tissue ! :)

The nervous tissue functions to react to stimuli and to conduct impulses to various organs in the body which brings about a response to the stimulus. Neurons are the basic unit of a nerve, that transmit impulses very rapidly.

Connective Tissue is Most Important

Connective tissue is more important, because of the fact it connects every single thing in your body almost. Blood is even a connective tissue, and we need blood to survive. All of the connective tissues work together so that our body can function correctly. The blood and bones are connective tissue that we need, because if they were not connected there is no way possible that we would be alive.
