Tissues

Nervous, Epithelial, Muscle, and Connective

Nervous Tissue

-Nervous Tissue is located in the brain, spinal cord and nerves. The nervous tissue generates and transmits impulses to and from body organs via neurons. Also, some cells (neuroglia) support, insulate and protect neurons.

Epithelial Tissue

Covering the inside and outside body surfaces, including organs. Also, lines the cavities, tubes, ducts and blood vessels. The function is to protect, absorption, filtration and excretion, secretion, and sensory.

Connective tissue connects, binds and supports structures. Also protects and cushions organs and tissues.

Muscle Tissue is the MOST IMPORTANT!

If we didnt have muscle tissue we wouldnt be able to digest food, move from one place to another or even get blood from our heart to our feet. Our muscles are a very important part of the human body.
