Different Tissue Types
Did you know that our body has four different tissue types?
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.

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.
